At Construction for Change, we are committed to building infrastructure that alleviates poverty worldwide.

Our Programs:


Our core construction program, this is where it all began.  We build facilities that help under-resourced communities address and alleviate poverty. We select partner organizations dedicated to providing low to no-cost healthcare, education, food security and economic development opportunities in some of the poorest regions in the world.  We provide pro-bono and low-bono construction management, from design to build, to provide significant cost savings and ensure their critical programs and services are unhindered throughout the construction process.


As the Puget Sound continues to experience tremendous growth in population and industry, the need for programs and services dedicated to alleviating poverty and promoting social justice increases as well.  At CfC, we recognize our capacity to work with these organizations and meet the needs of our community.  This program manages pro-bono and low-bono remodels and renovations, and provides small project grants for King County area nonprofits.

Change Fellows

This innovative, year-long fellowship provides practical training, mentorship opportunities and international field experience to aspiring yet underrepresented construction leaders – especially women and minorities – working in the management ranks of construction and related fields. Fellows oversee CfC construction projects in underserved areas abroad while learning to work with and train people of different backgrounds and experience.

30/30 Project

A partnership between Julie Lewis, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and Construction for Change to build healthcare facilities across the globe. Firmly grounded in the philosophies of CfC:global, at the 30/30 Project we believe fundamentally that healthcare is a human right. We select partners working in areas with high HIV/AIDS incidence, and that taken an innovative, proven approach to changing this. Construction for Change oversees all funds, administration and construction management services for these facilities. In 2014 the 30/30 Project accounted for 80% of all programmatic expenses, demonstrating the great need and value of increasing access to healthcare.
