MISSION: The Home Builders & Remodelers Association Charitable Foundation was established, and recognized by the IRS, in 2010 as a 501(c)(3) charitable, non-profit organization and is dedicated to being the philanthropic arm of the Home Builders Association of Hartford County.
The Foundation’s mission is to highlight the commitment and generosity of HBRA members and the building industry by creating a better quality of life for residents in central Connecticut. This is done by supporting community organizations, contributing to community service projects, and providing scholarships for students and member employees pursuing a education and a career related to the building industry.
Throughout the HBRA’s more than seventy year history, our members have been very generous with their support of charitable organizations that help those less fortunate. Sometimes this support has been through direct financial contributions, but often it has been through the donation of labor, materials, professional expertise and services.
Over the years the Home Builders & Remodelers Association has endowed a fund at the University of Connecticut Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. These funds have been used to supply life saving equipment for some of the most critical patients in need and provide local accommodations for families utilizing the NICU service. The Foundation has also supported:
- Coram Deo, Inc.
- The Salvation Army Holiday Store
- The Jimmy Fund
- Jonathan’s Dream Playground
- The Hope Partnership
- Home for Our Troops
- Homes For Heroes
- Habitat for Humanity
