Redwood City, CA (PRWEB) July 21, 2008
W. L. Butler Construction, Inc. was formally acknowledged for the company's tireless commitment along with other community-minded organizations who share the same passion, energy and competitive spirit about giving back at the annual Corporate Philanthropy Summit in San Francisco Thursday morning.
Among the 70 companies named by the San Francisco Business Times as a Top Corporate Philanthropist, W. L. Butler Construction ranked No.51 based on total financial contributions within the Bay Area. In addition, the company was the only general contractor among an elite group of 19 businesses presented with the Community Commitment Award for giving more than one percent of pre-tax profit to charitable causes in the past year. This notable honor is a reflection of their generosity, relative to their size.
"Nothing measures a company's corporate values and character more than its ability to serve as a reliable source for improving the communities in which it does business. This award demonstrates the incredible power we can all have when you pull resources and talent to help helping those less fortunate achieve a better quality of life," says Frank York, President of W. L. Butler Construction, Inc.
Even with tough financial times demanding more strategic giving programs, W. L. Butler Construction proudly embraces their tradition of giving through various community projects including hosting annual golf tournaments benefiting the March of Dimes and Make-A-Wish Foundation®, coordinating fundraising efforts to increase educational opportunities for students with severe disabilities at the Walton Special Center of Stockton, restoring lives in tandem with Rebuilding Together, creating one-of-a-kind playhouses for Dreams Happen, making substantial monetary contributions to the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital in lieu of holiday gifts, participating in walks supporting causes such as the Gift of Life, Donate Life, American Heart Association and the Lymphoma Society, as well as many other company sponsored events. Moreover, members of the leadership team actively serve on a number of boards and committees for non-profit entities.
"We are proud to have been named among the San Francisco Times' distinguished list of companies leading the way to a better tomorrow and embrace the opportunity to serve as an inspiration for other medium-sized businesses like us looking to explore how they can do more to make our communities stronger," says Bill Butler, CEO & Founder of W. L. Butler Construction, Inc.
