Throughout the year SMPS Boston offers scholarships to its members for CPSM Certification, boot camp attendance, and conference attendance. Additional to giving back to the Chapter, we bring opportunities to our members to give back to the community! We choose charitable organizations and fundraise for them through select events. This year we will run our 3rd annual clothing drive at the Chapter’s Holiday Party to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters. Other past beneficiaries have included Rebuilding Together Boston and South Shore Habitat for Humanity.
SMPS Boston participates annually in Community Connect: A Day of Service with Boston’s commercial real estate industry. This springtime event brings together multiple organizations in the commercial real estate industry for a day of service.
SMPS Boston also gives monetary donations to organizations selected by the executive committee. Past beneficiaries have included Renovate for Recovery and One Fund Boston. In 2015, SMPS Boston became proud sponsors of Strong Women, Strong Girls (SWSG); we invite you to learn more and get engaged as we kick-off a long-term partnership of mentoring and speaking opportunities with their Strong Leaders Network!
SWSG is a local non-profit that provides multi-generational mentoring to build a community of strength around young girls, college mentors, and professional women alike. In its 11th programming year, SWSG initiated their Strong Leaders Network. This part of the mentoring program engages more than 70 women from six area colleges and over 120 professional women to build connections through a networking event series. Please visit SWSG.org to learn more about the organization and their Strong Leaders Network.
