Harold E. Eisenberg Foundation Celebrating 25 Years – A Letter from the Eisenberg Family

Thursday, December 21, 2023

Dear Friends,

This year marks the 25th Anniversary of the Harold E. Eisenberg Foundation.  The Foundation was built from an outpouring of love by our family, along with Harold’s friends and colleagues, to honor his memory by fighting the cancers that took his life and by continuing his legacy as a mentor and educator.

Over the last 25 years, with the help of thousands of supporters and volunteers like you, the Harold E. Eisenberg Foundation remains dedicated to life-saving gastrointestinal cancer research and life-changing real estate educational initiatives.

Together, we have made a tremendous impact on cancer research through our partnership with the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University, through the creation of the Harold E. Eisenberg GI Cancer Tissue Bank and the OncoSET Program.  We’ve also had the privilege of funding clinical trials for dozens of research scholars over the last 25 years.

The Foundation’s longevity is a testament to the commercial real estate community.  Our dedicated and long-standing volunteers have supported 1,900 days of real estate mentorship, hundreds of speaking engagements, and 30+ real estate programs for students.  Our family is deeply grateful for the contributions of both time and financial support provided to the next generation of real estate professionals.

As we begin this monumental year, we hope you will join us in celebrating our successes and continuing our efforts to touch the lives of students and raise critical funds in the fight against gastrointestinal cancers.

With our deepest gratitude,
The Eisenberg Family
