CREW Pittsburgh’s Community Action Committee is committed to delivering CREW Network’s mission within our local communities through education, community service, and personal impact.

Over the years the Community Action Committee has presented career panels at Chatham College, Point Park University, University of Pittsburgh, Duquesne University, La Roche University, and Pittsburgh Technical College. CREW Pittsburgh has also partnered with NAIOP and Robert Morris University, presenting to high school and college students in their Summer Commercial Real Estate Bootcamp.

CREW Pittsburgh seeks to make a lasting, positive impact on our local community, far beyond the commercial real estate industry. CREW Pittsburgh members contribute their time and effort to our collective philanthropic efforts.  Biannually we host a toiletry drive for Dress for Success Pittsburgh and a toy drive for Best of the Batch Foundation.
