The KBE Foundation hosts five signature philanthropic events each year, in addition to providing support to other charitable endeavors and organizations.*
Technical High School Scholarship Program
We believe a career in construction offers a great future for our nation’s young women and men. Since 2014, our Scholarship program has provided $114,000 in scholarships to 101 graduating technical high school seniors who are pursuing careers in the building trades and construction leadership programs.
Annual KBE Golf Tournament
First held in 2015, our annual golf event has drawn hundreds of golfers and raised thousands of dollars for our technical high school scholarship program. Helping create a well-trained workforce for the future of our industry just makes good sense!
Gift of Gobble/Thanksgiving’s On Us
Since 2009, we have been providing full Thanksgiving meals to our neighbors in need, reaching nearly 4,000 families through the efforts of our staff volunteers and their families.
Veterans Center/Mission BBQ Lunch
In 2019, we started a tradition of serving lunch to visitors and patients at the state-run Veterans Center in Newington, CT. One day each August, a dozen or more KBE Building Corporation employees serve several hundred veterans and their families, with food purchased from Mission BBQ.
Special Olympics Unified Fishing Tournament
We are the founding sponsor for this new Special Olympics event, which started in 2018. The fishing tournament draws Special Olympians from around the country. Our KBE team is on hand to work with the athletes on all aspects of fishing, from baiting hooks to shouting encouragement when someone hooks a fish.
*NOTE: The events shown above were previously organized by KBE Building Corporation through its 50 Ways to Make A Difference corporate philanthropy program. These programs are now funded and managed by the KBE Foundation.
