Religious, Education and Nonprofit

Special-use properties are more than buildings – they are the places that give life meaning and where foundations are laid for the next generation.


For over 50 years, we’ve specialized in partnering with organizations in the religious, not-for-profit, and education industries to provide tailored real estate services to care for some of life’s most meaningful spaces.

Property Types

  • Religious Properties

    We intentionally intertwine faith and business to best serve our partners. Our team of real estate professionals specialize in walking alongside pastors and denominations in aligning their church properties with their ministry. Even if a church is still using a building, there is often untapped ministry potential on church properties. To us, it is more than a transaction. It is about helping ministry flourish.

  • Educational Properties

    After assisting numerous schools in selling their current property and finding space as their operations expand, we know the players in the education space. Our connections, built over years of focusing on this specific asset type, help our clients sell and find a property with ease.

  • Nonprofit Properties

    Whether an organization needs a headquarters relocation, to find additional office space, or a vacant land search to build a custom facility, our team leverages our nationwide platform to provide best-in-class real estate services, all while keeping our client’s missions and ministry goals at the center of all decision making.

Our committees that oversaw the sales were confident that we were working from the best and most complete information available through [Foundry]’s guidance.
