The Cape Fear Builder’s Guild has generously donated a $1,500 scholarship the Cape Fear Community College Foundation to three students in the construction management technology program.

The Cape Fear Builders Guild (CFBG) is a select group of residential home builders in the greater Wilmington area that joined together 12 years ago 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 home buyers, preferred suppliers, builder members and the community in which they work. With assistance with four of their preferred vendors, Rugworks Floor Coverings, Coastal Window and Door Center, Professional Builders Supply and Ferguson Enterprises they were able to provide scholarships to CFCC students and high school students in the area for the last few years.

“CFCC has a great construction program. It was logical for us to serve the education system and serve the community, but also serve our specific industry with this scholarship,” said Jim Busby, board member of the guild.

The Builder’s Guild has provided student scholarships to Cape Fear Community College since 2010 to students with a 2.5 average GPA and those enrolled in programs related to the homebuilding industry such as Construction Management, Carpentry, HVAC and more.
