40 Up

Edifice Announces its “40 UP” Program Supporting Community Organizations

After 40 years of corporate giving, general contractor Edifice encourages other businesses to invest in non-profit and community organizations.

At a time when community organizations increasingly depend upon corporate support to fund their missions, Charlotte-based general contractor Edifice, Inc. commemorates its fortieth anniversary with a re-commitment to lifting up the community.

Launching its “40 UP” program, Edifice committed to a series of gifts to non-profits and community organizations totaling $400,000. The company hopes this program will inspire other businesses to prioritize philanthropic giving.

Edifice interviewed past recipients of the firm’s financial and material support to quantify whether there was a significant “multiplier effect” to its participation. The answer was a resounding “yes” as demonstrated in these two case studies from recipients of Edifice’s past giving.
