The Guido A. and Elizabeth H. Binda Foundation is a private foundation established in November 1977 by Guido and Elizabeth Binda. Guido was an architect specializing in school design. For over forty years he invested his time and resources throughout southwest Michigan, improving education and the quality of life for many. Elizabeth, a former educator and world traveler, was an avid reader and devotee of the opera, classical music and the arts. Her passion to enhance learning for all children and youth is exemplified in the Foundation's accomplishments.

 

For many years, Guido and Elizabeth chose to focus on creative educational programs in areas throughout southwest Michigan where Guido's architectural firm had designed schools. With a strong education policy, the foundation also supports arts and culture initiatives as well as health and human service programs in Battle Creek and Calhoun County.

 

Both Guido and Elizabeth believed it was beholden of all citizens to support agencies which were beneficial in improving human social conditions. We value inclusiveness and seek diversity to ensure that a range of perspectives, opinions, and experiences are recognized and acted upon in pursuit of the Foundation's mission. The Binda Foundation values differences among individuals including, but not limited to, age, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, race and physical ability.

 

Since Guido's passing in 1998 and Elizabeth's in 2009, the Board of Trustees has been privileged to continue their legacy. Their vision and investment in the future lives on.
