The Building Goodness Foundation is a Charlottesville non-profit that focuses on construction improvements and renovations for communities and families in need. Their projects span the globe, from right here in Charlottesville to Mississippi, Guatemala, and Haiti. They are currently taking proposals for their upcoming Fall Building Project (which occurs in Charlottesville) and I would encourage anyone who is aware of a community or civic center, school, or library that is in need of some structural repair and renovation to submit a proposal to BGF!
From their monthly newsletter;
We are now accepting proposals for our third annual Local Fall Building Project. In partnership with local nonprofit agencies, BGF volunteers will donate hundreds of hours of skilled labor to consult, design, build or renovate a building that serves a community need in the Charlottesville/Albemarle area. Renovations or additions to existing buildings such as clinics, schools or community centers are examples of likely candidates. The Local Fall Building Project will not accept proposals for individual housing improvements.
Proposal applications for the Local Fall Building Project will be accepted until 5:00pm on Friday, February 26, 2010. A pdf version of the form is available here for download and also on our website. If you have questions, please contact Ethan by email or call the office at 434.973.0993.

I hope you will consider submitting a proposal or perhaps volunteering with the Building Goodness Foundation!
