Who We Are

The Foundation for Building is a 501(c) 3 not-for-profit organization that encourages environmentally conscious behaviors so that future generations can benefit and are motivated to continue sustainable practices in their neighborhood. We accomplish this through environmental education, advocacy, innovative community programs, and influential partnerships.

Our Mission

We seek to proliferate shared values for healthy and sustainable living, starting with our communities here at home, then advancing throughout the state and ultimately the nation.

How We Use Our Money

The majority of our funding is used to pay for innovative energy-efficient housing programs benefiting the homeless, home buyers, builders, architects and ultimately the entire community.
