“DO GOOD WORK. BE RESPONSIBLE.
TAKE CARE OF THE COMUNITY AND THE PEOPLE
WHO WORK FOR YOU.”
Founder, James Ghilotti
These words from the founder are the brick and mortar that have formed the foundation of Ghilotti Construction Company. The company contributes to the community in several ways. First, there are in-kind donations of capital improvements — such as grading and paving parking lots — and second, the commitment of many employees hours to more than two dozen North Bay nonprofit organizations and causes.
“We support our employees’ local charities by donating and sponsoring their charity events,” said company owner and President Richard Ghilotti. “While education is a priority, so are children’s charities, food banks and other nonprofits that directly benefit families. When you come from a large Italian family as I do, your heart goes out to the needs of other families who are less fortunate.”
Ghilotti Construction supports other educational organizations, including Sonoma State University, Marin Catholic High School, San Domenico Grammar School, Rio Lindo Adventist Academy, Redwood Adventist Academy, Dominican University, Santa Clara University and River Montessori Foundation.
Children, youth and family organizations are also recipients of Ghilotti Construction contributions. Those include North Bay Children’s Center, Oma Village, Miracle League North Bay, Homeward Bound of Marin, Speedway Children’s Charities, A Chance in Life (formerly known as Boy & Girls Town of Italy , St. Jude’s Foundation, Sunny Hills Services, Love a Child Missions, Center for Domestic Peace, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), and Sonoma County YMCA.
