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.

Spring Fling 

We support local community outreach initiatives that educate young people about the benefits of a career in construction. The programs serve a range of ages, from grade-school students to adults. We provide more than just funds — we also deploy volunteers who share collective insights about the industry and make introductions for those interested in entering the field.

In 2023, Spirit of Construction proudly distributed a combined $80,000 to 15 local, education-based organizations that provided Greater Cincinnati’s youth with the training and skills they need to begin successful careers in construction.

This year, we had the honor of distributing $105,000 to 16 education-based organizations! We’ll be learning more about their exciting educational programs in the coming weeks.
