The Arizona Community Foundation’s Pakis Center for Business Philanthropy has chosen Goodmans Interior Structures as one of its first-ever winners in the BOOST! Prize competition designed to encourage business leaders to commit more deeply to their charitable efforts and make philanthropy a core part of their operations.
The company will receive $40,000 to boost their efforts as good corporate citizens. Fann Contracting Inc., a Prescott-based highway and civil construction company, also received a BOOST! Prize, as well as $40,000.
Goodmans Interior Structures has been serving corporations, hospitals, universities, and government agencies in Arizona and New Mexico since 1954. The company has developed a reputation for being a family-owned business that specializes in customer-centered service, innovative office design and a commitment to the community. It is one of the first certified B Corporations in Arizona, a legal designation that recognizes commitment to the community, the environment and employees. Under the leadership of third-generation President and CEO Adam Goodman, the company has become a nationwide leader in products that support cultural alignment, workplace strategy and sustainable construction practices.
Goodmans will use the BOOST! Prize dollars to enhance three of its many programs that give back to the community: GoodTHREADS Boutique, which is a clothing bank in Southern Arizona that collects and distributes clothing to foster, adoptive and kinship families; the AIM to Make a Difference program for furniture repurposing that matches local nonprofits with surplus used office furniture; and Good Inc., an incubator that gives mission-aligned startups access to Goodmans work environment, including mentorship with executives in human resources, marketing, technology, finance, operations and sales.
