We are currently accepting community referrals for BGiA’s 2014 Autumn Project and 2015 April Build Day. Please email the address below to refer a home in need of repair.
Building Goodness in April (BGiA) was founded as Christmas in April-Charlottesville in 1991. In 2007, a name and organization affiliation change was made to ensure that the Charlottesville community benefited as much as possible from the efforts of this organization. BGiA is managed independently by Darden students who have complete responsibility for all fundraising needs, community partnerships and home rehabilitation efforts. Meet our executive committee and steering committee.
Every year in April, BGiA volunteers rehabilitate homes in the Charlottesville community. Our mission is to rehabilitate the homes of low-income, elderly and disabled families. We keep people living in warmth, safety and independence to prevent homelessness and to revitalize our neighborhoods. We achieve this sustainable impact by partnering with individuals and businesses in the local community. Building Goodness in April is a committee within the Building Goodness Foundation, an organization powered by skilled volunteers from the construction trades and our community.
