Donate to the Foundation

The Foundation for Community Association Research sponsors needs-driven research that informs and enlightens all association stakeholders-residents, homeowner volunteer leaders, community managers and other professional service providers, legislators, regulators and the media.

Your donation is essential to the continued growth of the Foundation and future research initiatives. You can help support the Foundation and our mission by making a tax-deductible contribution.

Ways to Donate

Memorial and Honorary Donations

Through donations of time and resources, our colleagues are improving our communities by sharing their experiences and expertise. A donation In Honor of or In Memory of a loved one is a respectful way to show your appreciation for their contributions to our industry.

How Do Honorary and Memorial Donations Work?

On our donation site, you can select the amount you want to give and add the name of the person whose life you are honoring as well as the individual we need to inform about your gift (we do not disclose gift amount unless you request this option). We’ll send you a tax acknowledgement receipt for your record keeping and send a letter to your recipient alerting them that you made a donation in their honor or in memory of their loved one.


A bequest in your will or trust can be tailored to complement your financial goals while also supporting the Foundation for Community Association Research. It is the simplest way to make a significant gift to the Foundation without affecting your assets during your lifetime. Find out more.
