OUR MISSION

Guided by the belief in the inherent dignity of all persons, the Pulte Family Charitable Foundation works to meet the basic human needs of the most marginalized members of the human family, including socioeconomically disadvantaged youth; the aged; persons with physical, emotional, and mental disabilities; and those with the fewest material resources.

In addition to the above, the Foundation seeks to serve religious communities and correlative organizations of Judeo-Christian beliefs. To this end, the Foundation strives to enact through its grantees the Seven Corporal Works of Mercy: feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty; clothe the naked; care for captives; shelter the homeless; visit the sick, and assist the mourning.

Our Founder

William J. Pulte, Master Builder & Philanthropist

William J. Pulte (1932-2018) was a Master Builder and philanthropist. He was born during the Great Depression, and his journey was from a hardworking vision-driven boy to a homebuilding industry leader. Bill constructed his first home in 1951 at age 18, and he went on to found and build Pulte Homes into a Fortune 500 company listed on the NYSE, the largest homebuilding company in America.

Bill was a faith-filled man who believed wholeheartedly in Luke 12:49 that “to whom much is given, much will be required.” He was a quiet giver who shared his resources and faith to support organizations and communities that reflected his vision of a more caring and compassionate world. Together with religious leaders from 8 different faiths worldwide, he created A Prayer for World Peace, featured at the World Peace Plaza, a place of reflection, prayer, and peace for all who visit.
