In 1954, the Barton Malow Company Foundation was established and, for more than 60 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 90 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. Barton Malow Company paid all event expenses allowing every dollar raised to impact the community through charitable donations. 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 a Foundation fundraising event. Our successful regional fundraisers have included the following annual events: RVA Field of Dreams Fest in Richmond, VA; the Bowling Fundraiser in Baltimore, MD; and the Clay Shoot in Lakeland, 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 over 80 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 multiple pre-arranged volunteer sites across the Company.
“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 Company Executive Vice President.
