The Big Picture

We need your help increasing our BIG PICTURE

The Big Picture Campaign is the Foundation's annual opportunity to raise critical funds that support our research agenda. With a team of dedicated volunteers, we work together to identify and understand the national trends occurring throughout community associations and then we waste little time assembling the right people needed to tackle each research topic. Through our collective strengths, we develop the Best Practices Reports and other guidelines you’re already familiar with - all so your community can thrive.

Now more than ever, we need your help! Community associations are expanding to accommodate greater numbers of people and this is placing an increased demand on our research. Please help us maintain our research agenda and donate today. By joining our volunteer leaders, Team FCAR, you’ll help us reach our goal of $15,000 and ensure that our resources remain available to everyone who is striving to strengthen their own community.

>>Donate Now!

See below for complete donation instructions.

For each donation of $40 or over, we’ll include your photo on our Big Picture banners, displayed at annual CAI conferences. Make your donation by February 24, 2017 and we’ll be sure to include your photo on our banners at the 2017 Annual Conference and Exposition in Las Vegas.

From everyone at the Foundation for Community Association Research, and especially our Team FCAR leaders, thank you for contributing to the success of our industry!
