Building Futures Foundation

The Building Futures Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit foundation that supports individuals pursuing careers in the building industry through scholarships and tool grants.


Since 2007, we’ve awarded 102 scholarships and tool grants, representing a total investment of $161,250 in construction careers.






Students living in Clark County who plan to pursue a career in the building industry by attending a college, university, or a trade/technical school can apply for scholarships. Scholarship applications generally open in January of each year.


1st and 2nd year electrician apprentices can apply for tool grants. We welcome the opportunity to help you further your career!
