Building for the Future

BGF constructBuilding Goodness Foundation (BGF) is a nonprofit construction organization based in Charlottesville, Virginia. Each year, BGF helps build and renovate structures for nonprofits doing great things in local communities both in the US and abroad.  I am proud to say that Building Goodness Foundation is one of the local groups supported through Win Win for a Cause donations.

Domestic

They connect skilled volunteers from the design and construction industries with high-impact nonprofit organizations in need of new or renovated space. Local volunteers are coordinated to design and build structures for non-profits, including health clinics, birthing centers, women’s clinics, schools and community venues.

BGF often reduces the cost of U.S. partners’ capital projects by as much as half. This allows a nonprofit’s scarce funding to be funneled back into their life-affirming services.

They also provide critically-needed housing repairs for several low-income U.S. families each year.

International

BGF successfully builds structures for partners in some of the poorest nations in the world.

Through a Field Manager living on site, BGF collaborates with a partner NGO to design and build a needed structure, while employing and training local workers in the construction process, side-by-side with volunteers.

The above-average wages paid to local workers in these communities contribute positive economic impacts on areas in dire need.
