BLW Systems Kicks of A.C.E.-versary Donation Program with Contribution to HomeAid
BLW Systems, creator of Actual Cost Engineering (A.C.E) construction software program providing realistic business management solutions to contractors and home builders, is proud to officially launch its give-back program by making a donation to a philanthropic cause that’s near and dear to home. In partnership with Montgomery Keith Company (MKC), a Costa Mesa-based painting company specializing in the new home construction industry, the company has made a donation to the Orange County chapter of HomeAid, a 501 (c) 3 charitable non-profit organization that builds and renovates shelters for those in Orange County who find themselves homeless due to sudden job loss, catastrophic illness, spousal desertion, and domestic violence. The donation will directly benefit HomeAid's ongoing renovation projects, as well as new initiatives including the recent opening of its own housing project, Family CareCenter, which has over 70 beds and provides emergency housing for over 120 families annually.
BLW Systems has made it a hallmark of its business to pay forward by giving back to organizations, like HomeAid, that are doing good in the world. As part of this promise, the company has pledged to donate 10% of its revenue to philanthropic causes, with half of that amount benefiting organizations that are meaningful to its clients and half going to its own partner philanthropies. In celebration of MKC’s first anniversary, BLW Systems asked owners Janelle Keith and Jim Montgomery to select an organization deserving of this donation.
“HomeAid gives homeless families and individuals in Orange County the opportunity for a fresh start through its incredible, meaningful renovation and home building projects, and we’re honored be a part of that mission,” said Keith. “Not only have we been impressed with all that BLW Systems has done for us on the business side, but allowing us to choose a charity to give back to proves that they are a true partner, not just a software program."
Created by the Building Industry Association of Southern California, Orange County Chapter, in 1989, HomeAid Orange County is a community-based organization focused on building and renovating emergency shelters, transitional housing and permanent housing as a solution for ending homelessness in Orange County.
