Community Involvement

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, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, which allows the generosity of HBA Fox Cities members and donors to be focused on housing-related education, research and charitable aid initiatives. Through annual fundraising events, the HBA Fox Cities Fund supports scholarships for students pursuing education in residential construction related fields. The events also raise funds to support charities, primarily those that are housing-related, particularly in the Fox Cities. 


Fundraising Events
HBA Fox Cities hosts an annual Golf Outing for Charity. Participation of members in the annual Golf Outing for Charity and Scholarships -- as golfers and as sponsors -- allows HBA Fox Cities - through its charitable fund through t
he Community Foundation for the Fox Valley - to provide grants and to area housing-related charities and scholarships to students pursing careers in the construction trades. Charitable grant requests from local housing-related non-profit organizations are reviewed annually, and emergency funding requests will be evaluated as they arrive.

Affordable housing is important in our community, and Home Builders Blitz takes it to the next level.
