Wilmington, NC – Wilmington, NC – The Cape Fear Builder’s Guild (CFBG) has generously donated $1,250 for scholarships to the Cape Fear Community College Foundation for two students in the construction management technology program. CFCC construction management students Richard Hilbourn and Cristian Molina both received scholarships.

“With the uptick in residential construction in the Cape Fear region, employers in the construction trades are encountering a shortage of qualified workers,” said Craig Johnson, president of the Cape Fear Builders Guild. “Our group is passionate about assisting students with training for these in-demand jobs and helping our members by supporting the development of a highly-trained workforce.”

The Cape Fear Builders Guild (CFBG) is a select group of residential homebuilders in the greater Wilmington area that joined to command better pricing and support from suppliers. Members exchange information on emerging market trends, design innovations and emerging technologies to ensure the best product and service is provided to CFBG customers. Through this association, CFBG builders provide benefits to homebuyers, preferred suppliers, builder members and the community in which they work.

The Builder’s Guild has been supporting student scholarships at Cape Fear Community College since 2010, and to date has donated more than $3,750 to students training for jobs in the homebuilding industry.

The Cape Fear Community College Foundation exists to support the mission of the College and its students, faculty, staff, programs, scholarships and specific capital projects. The Foundation secures and manages the endowment, gifts, and grants consistent with donor intent; These include but are not limited to, cash contributions, planned or estate gifts, securities, donated services, equipment, and supplies for educational purposes.
