RREF Pioneers

RREF Pioneers are individual donors to the Foundation with a commitment to ensuring that RREF can continue to support real estate and planning education at Reading and help build upon its success as one of the leading centres for real estate research and education in Europe, at one of the top 200 universities in the world.

All RREF Pioneers make an annual gift of £1,000 over at least a 3 year period, and members include some of Reading's most high profile and successful alumni.

All alumni and friends of RREF are invited to become Pioneers and, as a result, increase their engagement and input into the future life of the School of Real Estate & Planning. As membership grows, we will offer our Pioneers opportunities to build relationships with other members that we hope will be beneficial to both themselves and the University.
