Our latest research explores reserve studies and funding. We received more than 1,000 responses from 44 states representing at least 10,000 community associations. The survey asked respondents about whether their community has a reserve study, who prepared it, how often is it updated, and whether the developer included it as part of the original community budget.

The Foundation is committed to making diversity, equity, and inclusion a core aspect within our organization and the community association housing model at large. We firmly believe in the unique strengths of every individual and that diversity makes organizations more successful and communities more fulfilling. By actively cultivating diversity, we benefit from a vastly richer mix of ideas, perspectives, and life experiences that expand our thinking and our possibilities. We strive to foster a culture of discovery, innovation, and service as we continue to focus on our mission to build better communities.
