Barton Malow Foundation Building Communities

Second Annual Foundation Building Communities Golf Classic Raises over $250,000 in  funds to invest in the Detroit Region


SOUTHFIELD, Mich. – July 10, 2015 – On Monday, June 22nd the Barton Malow Foundation hosted its second Building Communities Golf Classic at Meadowbrook Country Club to raise donations beyond what Barton Malow Company typically invests in the Foundation.  The Barton Malow Foundation celebrates over 60 years of community giving and is focused on the development of the communities where Barton Malow Company builds People, Projects and Communities.

“The Building Communities Golf Classic; supported by another very important community, our subcontractors, partners and vendors; has raised over $250,000 – all proceeds will be given to non-profit organizations and foundations. We are honored and humbled by the support readily given by our sponsors,” said Doug Maibach, Trustee, Barton Malow Foundation. Over 40 companies stepped forward for our cause.

At the Golf Classic, the American Heart Association and Ilitch Charities were each presented with $25,000. The Golf Classic also recognized their second Community Builder Award in which Motor City Electric was given $5,000 to Girl Scouts of America on behalf of the Barton Malow Foundation.

Barton Malow’s core purpose is, “Building with the American Spirit – People, Projects and Communities,” and the corporate culture, since its inception, has been entrenched in a commitment to others. To that end, in 1954, the Barton Malow Foundation was established by Carl O. Barton, Arnold Malow, Harold Butler and Chairman Emeritus Benjamin C. Maibach Jr.  

Today, Barton Malow donates an average of five percent of its earnings each year to charities and foundations across the country with over $2 Million donated in the past 8 years through some challenging years in the industry and economy.
