Builders for Better Communities Foundation

As part of an ongoing effort to collectively give back to underserved communities within the homebuilding industry and the greater Southern California region, the Building Industry Association of Southern California (BIASC) is pleased to announce the formation of the Builders for Better Communities Foundation.

The foundation’s activities will include partnering with homebuilding industry members who support education and awareness programs that provide positive social, environmental, and economic impacts that help shape current and future communities.

A Celebration of Differences

Part of the strategic focus of the Builders for Better Communities Foundation will coincide with BIASC’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiative. We firmly believe that the future rests in our collective ability to embrace change and leverage diversity through its celebration of differences such as race, gender, disability, religion, and age. All aspects of diversity enrich our workplace, leadership, and membership and provide continued community support.

The organization intends to make supporting affordable housing opportunities for U.S. Veterans and their families, a cornerstone of this program. California’s housing crisis continues to have a significant impact on the most vulnerable, including our veterans.


  • This year, BBCF was proud to host two summer Junior Builder Camps – one in Los Angeles in partnership with Southern California Gas Company – and one in Orange County in partnership with Brookfield Residential.

  • BBCF’s Fall Junior Builder Camp will take place on Saturday, October 28th at the Gardens at Arboretum in Fontana in partnership with Lennar, Kevin L. Crook Architect Inc, and K Hovanian Homes.

Past Featured Event Highlights

The Builders for Better Communities Foundation has already hit the ground running with two major announcements:

  • On October 26, 2022, BIASC hosted former President George W. Bush at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills. This special evening featured an important discussion among homebuilding industry leaders regarding the industry’s unique and vital role in supporting affordable housing opportunities for our nation’s veterans.

  • On January 2, 2023, BIASC was an official participant in the 134th Tournament of Roses Parade. BIASC’s float entry in the Rose Parade helped to promote the multi-generational legacy of women and men who have worked to build communities in Southern California and showcase how the homebuilding industry creates future communities based on inclusiveness and equality. We are thrilled to announce that our float was awarded the Past President Trophy for most outstanding innovation in the use of floral and non-floral materials.
