Barton Malow Foundation

In 1954, the Barton Malow Company Foundation was established and, for more than 65 years, Barton Malow has donated 5% of annual net earnings to charitable organizations. Aligned with Barton Malow’s core purpose, the Foundation’s goal is to build people, projects and communities. These goals and our company’s purpose stem from a 95 plus-year history of company leaders with a shared common goal – an extraordinary dedication to community service.

In 2014, the Foundation began to expand its role in the company and its presence in the community with a number of new initiatives. That year, the Foundation hosted its first Building Communities Golf Classic, raising almost $250,000 with the generous support of our partners, subcontractors and suppliers. The Building Communities Golf Classic is now a highly anticipated, annual sold out event. Additionally, to increase charitable giving in the areas surrounding all of Barton Malow’s offices, each region of the Company has implemented Foundation fundraising events. Our successful regional fundraisers have included the following annual events: a Drive Shack fundraiser in Richmond, VA; a golf outing in Baltimore, MD; and an annual Clay Shoot in Orlando, FL.

At the end of 2014, the Foundation rolled out the Build Your Community Employee Giving/Match campaign in which employees were given the opportunity to contribute to the Foundation via payroll deduction. Their contributions were then available for them to donate – plus a dollar-for-dollar match from the Foundation – to the non-profit organization of their choice. This program continues to grow and has increased our employee giving to more than 100 causes that matter to them.

In addition to our financial contributions, our employees donate their service and time as compassionate community members where they work, live and play.  Our Community Week takes place the first week in August and gives all employees a chance to spend a day helping others at more than 70 different pre-plannned activities across the company and country. 

“We’re so proud to have employees who share a desire and make it a priority to serve non-profit organizations, with many doing so in leadership positions,” says Doug Maibach, Foundation Trustee and Chairman of Barton Malow Enterprises.

“I am so proud to work for a company that not only talks the talk, but also walks the walk in supporting its employees and the community. Barton Malow's commitment to community service is unmatched in the industry. It starts at the top and is infused into all that we do as individuals and as a team of builders. "Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing." Theodore Roosevelt spoke these inspirational words, and Barton Malow makes it possible for me to put them into action every day! ”
