Utah PWB Building Home To Raise Awareness & Scholarship Dollars
The Utah Chapter of the NAHB Professional Women in Building is designing and constructing a home that will be showcased in the 2021 Utah Valley Parade of Homes. The goal for this home is to highlight and utilize women professionals, skilled tradeswomen, and women-owned companies for all stages of the project.
The Utah PWB needed a website to raise awareness of The House That SHE Built to maximize profits. Meredith Communications agreed to build the website pro bono so that all proceeds from the sale of the home would go towards the designated charities. The Utah PWB is planning to donate the proceeds of the sale of the home between scholarships, women-run charities, and future home projects like The House That SHE Built. The scholarships will account for 60% of the total profit and will be awarded to women pursuing construction management-related degrees or trade school programs. The scholarship fund will be administered by a Utah PWB committee. 20% of the profits will be used by the Utah PWB for education initiatives and future building events. The remaining 20% will be donated to a local woman-centric charity, Life Start Village Family Support Center.
Meredith Communications designed and developed a custom WordPress website for the Utah Professional Women in Building Council to showcase the House That SHE Built. As a fellow-woman-owned and led organization, Meredith Communications was very proud and honored to donate the design, development, and ongoing hosting of the website to the Utah PWB Council to support The House That SHE Built cause.
