Home Builders Association of the Fox Cities applauds its members for the significant charitable aid given to valuable organizations throughout the Fox Cities area by individual members and member companies.
HBA Fox Cities has a fund through The Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region Inc., which allows the generosity of HBA Fox Cities members, as a group, to be focused charitable giving, student scholarships and workforce development programs.
HBA Fox Cities hosts an annual Golf Outing for Charity. Participation of members in the annual Golf Outing for Charity -- as golfers and as sponsors -- allows HBA Fox Cities - through its charitable fund through Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region - to provide grants and to area housing-related charities, scholarships to students enrolled in post-secondary education in the building trades and funding to workforce development programs.
Charitable grant requests from local housing-related non-profit organizations are reviewed annually, and emergency funding requests will be evaluated as they arrive.
