Carolyn and Preston Butcher

Preston and Carolyn Butcher have donated $1.5 million to the Urban Land Institute Foundation (ULIF) to fund the ULI Homeless to Housed Initiative, which will identify and disseminate best practices that will enable communities to provide housing for those experiencing homelessness.

The Initiative will be part of the ULI Terwilliger Center for Housing and will build on the findings of the center’s recent report “Homeless to Housed: The ULI Perspective Based on Actual Case Studies.” Co-authored and funded by Preston Butcher, the report explores how to support people experiencing homelessness through creative housing solutions and community collaboration. It includes case studies of eight successful developments around the United States.

A longtime multifamily housing leader, Butcher is the former chairman and CEO of Legacy Partners Commercial in Foster City, California.
