At Harrison Street we believe in giving back and helping to strengthen communities. Our corporate philosophy is to improve the lives of others by volunteering in our local communities and giving back whenever possible.

Employee Donation Matching Program 

HSRE’s Charitable Gift Match Program was created in 2013 to support the generosity of our employees by providing a dollar-for-dollar charitable gift match. Since the program's inception, Harrison Street employees have given to more than 100 different organizations that impact education, youth programs, animal welfare, health and hunger.

Every year we partner with local organizations and charities to clean up neighborhoods and enhance local community buildings. On July 21, 2016, Harrison Street Real Estate partnered with Chicago Cares for our fourth annual volunteer event. This year, employees spent their time at Randolph Elementary School in the Englewood neighborhood on Chicago’s Southside. Volunteers donated their time by creating plywood letters welcoming staff, students, and guests; building benches and planter boxes; painting canvas murals that promote healthy lifestyles; and sprucing up the inside of the building by painting stairwells. The accomplishment of these projects makes Randolph Rockets Elementary a more inviting school for students and families.

In addition, we coordinated three small team volunteer events including cooking brunch with senior residents, and baking cookies and dinner for the families staying at Ronald McDonald House.
