S.E.C. Charitable Fund


The Foundation, through its Charitable Fund, awards scholarships and grants to further its objective of educational opportunity for real estate professionals, aspiring students, academic institutions and the investing public.

Originally named in honor of S.E.C. Member Jim Farley, the S.E.C. Charitable Fund has assisted S.E.C. Members and their families in times of need and celebrated the success of our scholarship recipients for many years. Today, the S.E.C. Education Foundation continues that tradition and remains dedicated to the S.E.C. principles and values Jim Farley lived his life by.

The Charitable Fund provides $500.00 scholarships on a one time per person basis to qualified applicants who submit their request on our approved application; up to the total amount budgeted each year.  All students  pursuing academic endeavors, real estate licensees, and others advancing their education in creative real estate and equity marketing are welcome to apply.   One additional scholarship in the amount of $1,000.00 may be awarded annually based on a demonstration of academic or professional excellence.

S.E.C. Education Program Grants are available to qualified individuals, organizations and academic institutions for initiatives in business and real estate education that further enhance the mission of the Society and the Foundation. Grant applicants must pursue professional or educational programs that advance the principle that “Real Estate is a People Business.”
