CBC Charities began in 2001 as the employees and friends of Continental Building Company created a lasting tribute to the son of a fellow employee.  In 2001 The Tyler Ludwig Scholarship was created and today it continues to serve young people interested in education in a construction related field. The scholarship is awarded through The Builders Exchange Foundation (of Central Ohio) and currently awards the successful student with a $1,000 scholarship and is renewable each year as long as the student maintains certain criteria.  If you are interested in applying for The Tyler Ludwig Scholarship you may obtain an application form through The Builders Exchange Foundation. 

In 2004, CBC Charities wanted to expand its’ charitable focus so we created an employee based charity committee and defined our primary purpose as: to provide for the care and education of our youth

With this in mind, we established the CBC Charities scholarship fund that is housed at The Columbus Foundation.  High school seniors from Central Ohio and the Greater Pittsburgh area are eligible to apply. We awarded our first $1,000 scholarship in 2006 - the student must attend a four-year college or university and can renew it each year. In 2016, we changed our award amount to $2,000 per year for our scholarship recipients, making it an overall gift of $8,000 per student - AND - in 2020, we added a $1,000 scholarship for a student attending a two-year university or trade school!  To apply for the CBC Charities scholarship, please click this link.
