Annual Gala

Each fall, the Spirit of Construction Foundation hosts a black-tie optional dinner and gala, known as the “Celebration of Construction Gala,” which celebrates the construction industry and recognizes individuals for their lifetime contributions to the industry and the civic, aesthetic, and economic well-being of the Greater Cincinnati region. At this event, the Spirit of Construction Foundation also recognizes college and military scholarship award recipients and education-based grant recipients. It is an event to remember!

Save the Date!

Mark your calendars and plan to join us for the 2024 Celebration of Construction Gala on October 19, 2024! The event will be held at a new location this year – the Northern Kentucky Convention Center.

Endowment

Spirit of Construction’s Endowment Fund, established to create income and long-term financial stability, demonstrates our commitment to the future of the construction industry. The Endowment is about permanence and sustainable stewardship, and serves as a bridge across generations, translating past successes into future opportunities.

Our Endowment helps fund our mission of promoting careers in construction by fostering the potential of young people, providing opportunities to people who live in underserved communities, and funding scholarships for students pursuing higher education related to the construction industry. This in turn helps to bridge the trade gap, which is vital to the industry and the community alike. We’re excited to help build a bright future for our industry. 

The Endowment Fund is organized into four pillars — Outreach, Workforce Development, Scholarship, and the General Fund. Through these pillars, Spirit is attending to the future of our industry and paving the way for young people to gain hands-on experience and career opportunities in construction.

General Fund

The General Fund is used for general operational support. This is consistent with Spirit’s commitment to having staff make the volunteer board experience rewarding for high-level management executives since the board comprises top-level construction executives and select professionals from adjacent industries like law, accounting, and insurance.
