BEAR Construction Company and its dedicated employees are passionate about building communities, creating opportunities and breaking down barriers. BEAR engages the community and pursues these ideals through personal involvement, volunteering time and providing financial contributions. We truly believe that our efforts help to improve the lives of those we touch, and also come full circle in enriching our own lives and workplace.

The BEAR Foundation and Corporate Philanthropy

A 501(c)(3) organization, The BEAR Foundation focuses on raising funds and making grants to qualified public charities working in the fields of improving health care, childhood literacy and alleviating poverty. Since its founding in 2018, the foundation has donated over $1 Million to dozens of organizations.

As a corporation, BEAR makes financial contributions to multiple organizations with programs outside of the healthcare, literacy or poverty focus of the BEAR Foundation. From animal welfare to environmental protection and beyond, BEAR also contributes in the form of pro bono work, donations of materials and supplies, and many of BEAR’s employees serve on charitable boards. In addition to the $1 Million in donations made through The BEAR Foundation since its inception in 2018, BEAR Construction Company has donated over $4 Million and countless hours of time to support many charitable causes.
