The Lincoln Home Builders Care Foundation was established in 2009 as a 501(c)(3) charitable, nonprofit organization dedicated to the future of the home building industry in Lancaster County. The Lincoln Home Builders Care Foundation’s mission is to support the educational and charitable activities of the Home Builders Association of Lincoln. The Foundation strives to support the community by contributing to community service projects focused on housing as well as by providing scholarships for students pursuing a career related to the building industry and providing funding for other industry related educational programs. Since 2010, the Foundation has distributed almost $307,000 through residential and interior design contests, “If I Could Build a House” art contest, scholarship programs and donations to other charitable organizations. The Foundation also benefited local families through the Habitat for Humanity Blitz Builds and the annual Santa Cop Project.
