About Us

ICSC Foundation


The ICSC Foundation is dedicated to working together with our members to develop the industry’s next generation of professional leaders. We believe our industry has a social responsibility to give back to the communities they serve.

About us

Established in 1988, the ICSC Foundation is dedicated to creating a vibrant retail estate industry responsive to the needs of our members and communities. Today it is more important than ever to develop and encourage outstanding and diverse talent to enter and remain in the industry. By partnering with universities, corporations and committed individuals, the ICSC Foundation annually provides 115 scholarships and fellowships to undergraduates, graduates and rising professionals encompassing critical tuition assistance, mentoring and opportunities to attend key ICSC conferences such as RECon. The ICSC Foundation also supports student membership and outreach activities and partners with innovative non-profits committed to this effort.

Believing that our industry has a social responsibility to give back to the communities it serves, the ICSC Foundation promotes and encourages the philanthropic initiatives of its members through its Community Support Awards program. With 8 distinguished awards, the ICSC Foundation globally recognizes the most innovative community campaigns providing partnering charities with vital financial support and giving widespread exposure to the good work of shopping centers.

In 2015, the ICSC Foundation completed its first Capital Campaign to deepen, expand and enhance our programs. Driven by highly respected industry leaders, the Campaign was a huge success — raising $5 million within half the projected time — demonstrating the drive and generosity of our membership. Over the next several years, the ICSC Foundation will continue to build upon this momentum by expanding current programs, maximizing program impact and encouraging more member involvement.
