What is BICF?
A 501 c3 tax deductible foundation.
In 2009, the Building Industry Association of Greater Louisville’s social responsibility committee was granted 501 (c)(3) status. This non profit status enabled our Association to formally create a foundation to which tax-deductible charitable contributions can be made, in addition to now being able to accept endowments and grants. Both members and non-members can give charitable tax donations to the BICF. We encourage members who routinely support a local charitable cause to consider donating to your Building Industry Charitable Foundation so that our industry can make a greater impact on community through the Foundation. Charitable gifts made to the Building Industry Charitable Foundation will be donated to deserving local organizations and charities, typically related to the building industry.

2022 Help Build Hope

During the Mayor's Give A Day of service the BIA's charitable foundation BICF partnered with Crossroads Ministries and Help Build Hope to construct all of the wall sections for a home that was damaged during the tornados in Western Kentucky.  Our members donated their time, talent, and treasure to this project. The walls were transported from our parking lot to Dawson Springs, Kentucky to rebuild a home that was damaged in a tornado.

2020 Playhouse Project

Our 2020 BICF Playhouse recipient is Jane. Due to the circumstances and the ongoing pandemic, Jane's playhouse was built in her backyard, and she was able to have her reveal party at home.
Thank you to all of our vendors who donated their time and materials for Jane's playhouse this year. A special thanks to Tom Waller Signature Homes, Kosair Charities, and River City Bank.
