Charity

At Fugen Constructions, we believe it’s important to support our local community and charities.

For the past 11 years we have participated in the Cole Classic ocean swim, raising money for a selected charity each year. Over the years we have raised over $300,000 for charities within our community.

Motivated by personal stories and life-changing experiences, their fundraising efforts started back in 2009 raising money to support an injured colleague who lost his leg in a car accident. From there, supporting different charities every February has become a part of the company’s culture.
