For over 60 years the Barton Malow Foundation has been active in supporting the communities where we live, work and play. Aligned with Barton Malow Company’s core purpose the Foundation wishes to help build our people, projects and communities.
Each year, the Barton Malow Foundation in partnership with our chosen charitable benefactors, The Heat and Warmth Fund (THAW) and Habitat for Humanity in 2014, support the annual Building Communities Golf Outing.
Since 1985, THAW has been assisting Michigan residents facing an emergency energy crisis. The number of households that need utility assistance grows each ear. Last year, THAW distributed over $14 million in energy assistance to 15,000 Michigan households. Recipients of THAW assistance include the elderly, unemployed, underemployed and disabled individuals who have found themselves in an energy crisis. More than 70% of households have a child or senior in the home.
Habitat for Humanity
Every day the mission runs deeper in all of our partnerships, and together our interconnectedness has us focusing more on humanity than on the habitat. Our vision is to end poverty housing, we do that by providing a hand up to families, we empower families to be homeowners, who otherwise would never have an opportunity to own a home. But we don’t just build homes…we empower families.
Proceeds from the Building Communities Golf Classic will benefit THAW, Habitat for Humanity and the many organizations that the Barton Malow Foundation supports. As valued partners, subcontractors and suppliers we hope that you will be able to join us in this day of camaraderie and reflection upon what we can all do together to make a difference.
