James Barton Design-Build Gives Back and Stays Actively Involved Within Our Community

Building a successful business includes being a good citizen to the communities we serve. We are proud to be active in our community and abroad, supporting the needs of today and helping to prepare for the future.

The Giving Back Program

In 2016, we proudly announced a new program called “Giving Back.” As a company, we believe it’s essential to give back to communities, to organizations and to others and this program allows us to do just that. At the completion of each home remodeling project, James Barton Design-Build makes a charitable donation on the client’s behalf to one of the following charities: Ronald McDonald House, Susan G. Komen Foundation, Minnesota Animal Humane Society or the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. It’s that simple.

 JBDB Regularly Contributes to These Community and Philanthropic Causes:

When James Madsen heard the Chamber was considering moving into new offices, he offered to build a new conference room and storage room at no cost to the Chamber. The following year, he built an addition to the community center. This year, he provided a daycare in a building he co-owns and helped them purchase and install a new playground. True philanthropy is when you just do what is right and needed without asking for notoriety.
