Ways We Give

Pro Bono Work.

At our origins, Forney was started as a Partnership for our owner, Tom, to work Pro Bono for causes he is passionate about. This tradition has lived on through many of our employees today who support causes with not only their treasure, but their talent.

In-Kind Giving

At our Long Point Headquarters in Spring Branch, we donate in-kind office spaces amazing organizations such as Newspring Art Studio and Young Life Ministries.

Pay-It-Forward Program

Our Pay-It-Forward program is Forney’s commitment to our employees to foster a culture of SERVICE. Each employee is given three extra days of paid-time-off to volunteer at the non-profit organization of their choice and a stipend to donate to a cause they are passionate about.

Forney is Expanding Our Footprint to Florida

Beginning this Summer, Forney has officially expanded to South Florida, opening our second office in Fort Lauderdale.

Together, Vice President Dan Aimone and Regional Director Maxine Gomez will oversee the operations and business development for the new region. Specializing in Hospitality, Tenant Improvement, Healtchare, Mixed-Use, Remediation, Horizontal Construction, and Non-Profit work, the Forney Florida Team aims to expand the company’s positive footprint.

Foshee Family House of Tiny Treasures named “Development of Distinction” Non-Profit Winner

The Urban Landscape Institute’s “Development of Distinction” Awards for 2018 were announced, and the SEARCH Foshee Family House of Tiny Treasures was the Not-For-Profit Category winner! This project, which wrapped up construction in September of 2016, is located in Houston’s Third Ward and provides developmentally-focused care for preschool children while their parents, most of whom reside in shelters or other housing programs, attend classes and enter the workforce. Upon award, the Houston Business Journal noted that “The jury panel was inspired by the multi-dimension and ‘passion’ of the Tiny Treasures and further commented on the ‘welcoming’ and ‘inspiring’ spaces within the development.”

The Forney team is so excited to share this incredible honor, and look forward to the amazing continuing Impact that The House of Tiny Treasures provides to our community.

Houston Strong: Employees Support Houston Efforts to Rebuild

In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, our team remains committed to making an impact in our Houston community. This city is our home, not only for our business, but also for our families, friends, and neighbors. In the days and months to come we at Forney know no better way than to help rebuild, and we are humbled by the immediate response of individual employees who truly embody the spirit and values of our company.

Forney Project Coordinator Sarah Jane Moerbe initially jumped to action by preparing NRG for thousands of displaced Houstonians and sorting through masses of donations. After the storm settled, she worked to begin renovations at affected sites and sent supplies to her hometown of Orange, TX. Pictured is Sarah Jane alongside another member of the Forney Family, Mackenzie Bateman, working at Forney Superintendent Greg White’s affected home. Sarah Jane describes her experience:

“Although each day held a different experience, impacted a different person, and held different obstacles, there were many things that were undeniably similar: The devastation and need of the people we were able to serve each day was great, but even greater was their hope and joy from being cared for and witnessing the beginning of restoration.”
