The Texas Builders Foundation, the charitable arm of the Texas Association of Builders, was established in 2010 to serve as a resource to students, the residential construction industry, and the citizens of the state of Texas.

We are a non-profit whose mission is to support and develop the future of Texas’ construction workforce and facilitate the charitable activities of the residential construction industry.

The foundation is dedicated to opening doors to building the American dream of homeownership by paving the way for well-paying professional careers in the construction trades.

The Texas Builders Foundation is organized exclusively as a public charitable foundation within the meaning of Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended. All contributions to the foundation are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.


The Texas Builders Foundation serves as a resource to students, the residential construction community, high schools, trade schools and community colleges, and the citizens of the state of Texas. We are dedicated to helping Texans achieve a construction trade certification, license, or degree; to providing opportunities for employment as building professionals; and to helping Texans achieve the dream of homeownership. The foundation is committed to opening these doors across our state.
