Building better communities together

Through our social responsibility initiative, BT Cares, we support organizations that help build a better world. We also encourage our employees to donate their time and talent to strengthen efforts to build and improve our community.

Sparking change one moment and teammate at a time

At Buildertrend, everyone does their small part to make a big impact. Our team members receive Volunteer Time Off to give back to our community.

Turning advocacy into action isn’t just a perk of working at Buildertrend – it’s a part of who we are.

Our pillars of philanthropy

To create positive change, we focus our support on these four pillars.

Housing and basic needs

habitat build day
 

From Habitat for Humanity to Building Homes for Heroes, we support housing needs locally and nationally. Additionally, we give to numerous food and clothing drives throughout the year.

Support for children

wrapping gifts for kids
 

Buildertrend is unique for its millennial workforce, many of them with young families. That’s why the business is proud to support causes that help children, such as Children’s Hospital & Medical Center and Completely KIDS.

Local impact

brew haha
 

Helping the Omaha community as well as the surrounding metro areas is top of mind. Nebraska (and Iowa) strong is no joke. It’s important to not only support our employees but also the communities in which they live.

STEM education and women in tech

While most STEM programs encourage girls to participate, we at Buildertrend take this approach a step further and make strides to help break the glass ceiling by encouraging girls and women alike to follow their dreams in tech.
