Charitable & Education Foundation


The HBA’s Charitable & Education Foundation was officially founded in 2013 as a way to provide scholarships for students entering the housing industry and a way to give back to the community through special charitable donations.

The HBA’s Annual Installation & Awards Banquet raises funds for the foundation and to date we have raised nearly $30,000.  The incoming HBA President has the opportunity to recommend a “Charity of Choice” or educational scholarship recipient.

The foundation has awarded almost a dozen scholarships totaling $5000 to students or vocational schools in the housing industry. Lorain Community College, Cleveland State University’s Real Estate Program, Cuyahoga Valley Career Center and Auburn Career Center have all been recipients.

 We have also donated to such organizations as the Greater Cleveland Fisher House Project, Special Veterans in Need, Homes For Our Troops, and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
