Transforming Lives by Creating Opportunities

Our Mission

Our Story

Our Story

Allgire General Contractors has been building affordable housing for more than 30 years, becoming one of the top contractors and a strong, positive force in the community. With the retirement of founders Rick and Mary Ann Allgire, the company’s passionate employees are honoring them and continuing their legacy through the Allgire Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit, an organization the employees created to give back to the community where they live, build and play.

Through their decades of building affordable housing, Allgire General Contractors has observed that residents moving into affordable housing often lack some of the basics needed for a new home: plates, silverware, pots, cleaning supplies, basic hygiene supplies, and so many other needs. The Allgire Foundation is helping fill that void by providing community care packages to residents of these communities. The foundation will also focus on providing scholarships to people impacted by affordable housing to help create new opportunities for the future.
