Home Builders Foundation Fund
The Home Builders Foundation Fund of Greater Kansas City (Fund ID: home03) was formed in 2002 as the charitable arm of the Home Builders Association of Greater Kansas City. It is supported through contributions from HBA members and others. The Fund is dedicated to advancing a range of charitable, educational and community causes including:
- Housing-related issues
- Rebuilding declining neighborhoods
- Restoration of existing structures
- Building industry workforce
- Housing-related education/scholarship
- Housing disaster relief
- Community re-development
Enhancing education and job training is another mission of the Home Builders Foundation. Areas of support include:
- Funding scholarships for construction-related degrees
- Partnering with area school districts
- Partnering with various workforce initiatives
In 2019, the Foundation is partnering with Veterans Community Project (VCP) for the HBA’s Home & Lifestyle Show. A portion of the online ticket sales plus all proceeds from the Parade of Playhouses will benefit VCP.
The future can be made brighter for young people and the economically disadvantaged if we work to provide them the necessary education and training they need to succeed and prosper.
The Home Builders Foundation Fund is maintained and invested through the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation. The Community Foundation provides a range of services for many of the largest and most respected philanthropies and foundations in the community. The Home Builders Foundation determines and controls all gifting policies and procedures, solicitations of gifts, donations to qualified recipients and other management matters, according to the rules and regulations of the Home Builders Foundation Fund and the Community Foundation.
Thanks to the generosity and commitment of HBA members, affiliates and friends the Fund continues to thrive. Their ongoing support and commitment is crucial to providing funding for anticipated programs, projects and causes.
