Community Vision and Community Spaces Network are thrilled to announce our partnership to co-present the 2025 Social Purpose Real Estate (SPRE) Summit! 

Join us May 6-8, 2025 in Los Angeles where we will bring together community real estate professionals and practitioners interested, active, and expert in all aspects of commercial community spaces.

The Power of Partnership
For 20 years, Community Spaces Network (formerly the Nonprofit Centers Network) has believed in the power of collaboration, the strength in a shared vision, and the beauty in working together. Community Vision brings 35+ years of history working as a locally invested, collaborative partner in social justice and financial equity. This partnership combines CSN’s national and international perspective from across the U.S. and Canada with Community Vision’s deep roots in California’s context. 

Both organizations have extensive expertise and a firm commitment to mission-driven spaces and the communities they serve. By working together, CSN and Community Vision are uniquely positioned to curate an engaging and thought-provoking event.


“We couldn’t imagine a more deeply aligned organization than Community Vision to partner with as we bring our Summit to California. Collectively, we will present a meaningful event for all those advancing Social Purpose Real Estate,” said David Schrayer, Executive Director of Community Spaces Network.


“We’re thrilled to continue our long-standing partnership with Community Spaces Network by working together on the next Social Purpose Real Estate Summit. CSN’s deep expertise in community-focused, collaborative spaces brings a national and international perspective to local conversations about community ownership and belonging,” said Catherine Howard, President of Community Vision.

About the SPRE Summit
The SPRE Summit is an interdisciplinary conference for social purpose real estate leaders across North America, intentionally including various perspectives in the conversation. The event will feature opportunities to learn from both peers and expert practitioners about best practices, innovative resources, and strategies for creating social purpose real estate. 

Together, we’ll establish and grow the collaborative network needed to produce community-serving, community-owned real estate assets, and therefore support greater impact in local communities.
