The Hearthstone BUILDER Humanitarian Award is given each year to home builders who demonstrate a lifetime commitment to public service. Recent honorees include Oakwood Homes' Pat Hamill (above), DeNova Homes' Dave and Lori Sanson, and Christopher Gaffney of Toll Brothers.

Nominees must be for-profit, single-family builders or lot developers. They may be individuals or companies, employees or owners. Builders may nominate themselves or be nominated by other builders, charities, nonprofit organizations, or government organizations they have helped. Special recognition will be given to employees of building firms, in addition to owners.

A cash award will be donated to the winning builder's nonprofit charity or community service organization. The winner and their charity will receive national coverage in BUILDER magazine, our newsletters, and on our website.

Deadline for nominations is Jan. 15, 2019. Click here to download the entry form.
