Describe the give-back program of CT Wilson:

Serving the community is integral to everything that we do at CT Wilson Construction. This is enhanced by the fact that over 60% of our clients are non-profit entities. Beyond building, we support our clients through sponsorships, donations, and service activities. There is not one specific “give back” campaign.

What motivated you to give back and spurred you into action?

Our company founder instilled a community service mindset into each subsequent generation. Support from the private sector — and companies like CT Wilson — are crucial to making a difference.

What’s unique about your program?

Our industry is exposed to a wide variety of social issues. Buildings and structures are the place where human experiences occur. Housing and food insecurity, preservation of natural and historic resources, environmental impact, accessibility and equity, education, religion, etc., are all impacted by architectural design and construction.

Any memorable experiences to share?

One of the most unique community service projects we did involved resounding some of the big cat enclosures at the Carolina Tiger Rescue in Chatham County. Another memorable project was the Habitat for Humanity Playhouse Build, which involved building a playhouse to be donated to a local family and/or an organization that serves children. In late 2020, we polled hundreds of our past and present clients to designate how we would spend our holiday gift budget. We gifted $6,000 to 10 organizations across the state to assist with their service-oriented missions. We’re a regular supporter of TROSA, which is now expanding westward into the Triad region. Lastly, our biggest sponsorship of 2021 was the Eno River Association’s EnoFest. CT Wilson’s matriarch was on the original board for the Eno River Association, which continues to hold a special place in our hearts.

What do your customers say about it?

Our customers know that they are working with a company that cares, one that is trustworthy, and one that is looking out for the interest of the client.

How can readers support you and your program?
