Building On Hope seeks applications for nonprofit ‘makeover’

Jan. 30 deadline to apply for complete renovation of facilities

New Hampshire nonprofits have an opportunity to get a major gift this holiday season, thanks to Building On Hope, a New Hampshire-based volunteer organization that collaborates with builders, architects, designers and suppliers to provide physical improvements to non-profit facilities.

Building on Hope is accepting applications for its next “Extreme Makeover”-type renovation project from nonprofits in need of significant improvements to facilities they operate.

In the past six years, Building On Hope has completed $800,000 in renovations for Easter Seals NH, Girls Inc. and Opportunity Networks through donated goods and labor.

To be considered as Building On Hope’s 2016 signature project, compose a letter describing the work done by the nonprofit, how it benefits the community and how a rebuilt and remodeled structure could transform the organization and its services.

All letters should be sent to by Jan. 30, 2015.

“In just over six years, Building On Hope has completed $800,000 in renovations to nonprofits, and in the process, transformed hundreds of lives, leaving a legacy of hope for the future,” said Karen Van Der Beken, co-chair of Building On Hope. “As we head into the holiday season, we ask all New Hampshire nonprofits and the public to identify a project in their area that could benefit from resources Building On Hope provides.”
