BYC Jan ’20 Spotlight Series: Introducing the New 50/50 Fundraising Campaign


Introducing the New 50/50 Fundraising Campaign!

 January 27, 2020:  At the 2020 Carolinas AGC Annual Convention as we celebrated our 100th year, Build Your Career introduced a new and exciting fundraising program that piqued an extraordinary amount of interest from our attending member employers.  This employer-driven program is a creative fundraising initiative strategically designed to give your company a choice on how you would like your contribution to be used, both in your community at a local school and also within the BYC program.

Our new 50/50 fundraising program campaign is designed to allocate 50% of the funds you contribute to BYC toward supporting construction education at a K-12 school or Community/Technical College of your choice, with the remaining 50% being donated to support the expansion of an existing BYC program of your choice—all on behalf of your company!  You identify your target schools and we determine their needs, then align those needs with available resources.  This ultimately provides the highest levels support for your community, your company and your industry by helping to develop your talent pipeline.

Customize your contribution to fit your needs!

The 50/50 Sponsorship Program allows your contributions to be tailored to best suit your company’s needs by giving you the choice to support which BYC programs work best for you.  Your contributions can now be directed to a local school or college of your choice and will help establish a deeper and more meaningful relationship with your local education community, allowing you to build your own company’s talent pipeline through outreach while enhancing your company legacy for future generations.  The 50/50 campaign is one of several fundraising initiatives that will support BYC.  Your charitable donation will also allow us to continue expanding existing BYC programs and services that can sustain and grow the construction workforce across the Carolinas.

The power to choose how we use your donations to Build Your Career is now is your hands.  You, as an employer, now possess the creative control to determine exactly where your BYC contributions are going and precisely how they are used—both externally within your local community at the educational institution of your choice, as well as internally toward the BYC outreach program of your choice.

Your donation, your company, your choice!

How does it work?

  • 1. Make a byc donation $$$...

  • 2. Choose your local school, either k-12 or secondary…

  • 3. We determine their needs & align those needs with your resources…

  • 4. 50% of your BYC donation can then be used to create a scholarship, teacher externship, purchase construction materials (and much more) at your school of choice

  • 5. You also then choose which byc program you want the remaining 50% of your donation to support & tell us how it will best work for your companY—WE do the rest of the work for you!

The new 50/50 program fundraising campaign was specifically created with each of our CAGC member employers in mind.  Build Your Career and the Carolinas AGC Foundation wanted to design a new employer-driven program that would provide a direct impact and immediate benefit to our contributors and donors.  We have created a more streamlined approach to positively impacting the bottom line for each of our member firms by allowing each individual company to now completely customize their donations.  By supporting the BYC 50/50 fundraising campaign, you are leading the charge in filling your own talent pipelines because you are now able to more effectively target and identify exactly how your contribution funds will be best utilized to drive measurable results back to your company!

Why does it make sense for your biz?

  • You are supporting local construction education efforts

  • You are building your own talent pipeline directly back to your company

  • You are ensuring the growth & sustainability of your company, byc & your industry
