Charitable Foundation

The Building Industry Charitable Foundation was incorporated under S. C. Law in 1993 under bequest from the Home Builders Association of Greater Columbia (now the Building Industry Association of Central SC) which provided the initial funding. The Foundation was established for the purpose of the betterment of the community. The Foundation accomplishes its purpose by assisting individuals, programs and organizations in need.

The work of the Foundation crosses county lines and provides assistance to programs benefiting young and old alike. The Foundation, in its work, highlights the commitment and generosity of the building industry to a better quality of life for all residents of the Midlands of South Carolina.
