We lead with service in and outside the company. The American Constructors Foundation works with charitable organizations in the Austin area to support and enrich the communities where we live and work.
When Bill Heine founded the company nearly 40 years ago, he made philanthropy a key aspect of the culture. From then on, he started a tradition to support the area’s educational foundations and local nonprofits on an ongoing basis.
The American Constructors Foundation, launched in 2019, is the natural continuation of this decades-long commitment to the community. American Constructors has partnered with organizations throughout Central Texas to give back to the community and help build the leaders of the future. As a result, the Foundation routinely donates pro-bono services and financial gifts.

Expertise, resources, and skills are all applied to pro-bono services that include construction and maintenance.
Students have the opportunity to learn more about the construction industry. Additionally, they receive guidance about their career paths.
A mix of annual fundraisers, company activities, and public events that benefit the community’s local nonprofits.
American Constructors’ Annual Charity Clay Shoot, benefiting the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Austin Area (BGCAA) has been a company tradition since 2012. To date, we have donated more than $400,000 to BGCAA, the leading youth development agency serving the Austin community.
In April 2019, American Constructors hosted the inaugural Riverbat Paddle Battle, a kayak race benefiting the Austin Community College (ACC) Foundation. The event has raised $45,000 for the ACC Foundation to support student scholarships, apprenticeships, and workforce development.
Recipients of our annual holiday card are given the opportunity to select a local nonprofit organization to receive a $5,000 donation from American Constructors. All of the nonprofits do important work to improve the quality of life for children, providing critical resources and programs that increase health, wellness, and education.
“Not only do we very much appreciate the funding that we receive a lot of times from corporations, especially American Constructors, but the passion and return that we receive from the employees. We are building that next level of young people who will sit in our seats. We have the next Bill Heine sitting in a Boys & Girls club today.”Misti Potter,Former CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Austin Area
