Building a Foundation is a Brooksville, Fl. based non-profit organization that helps homeless families, disabled veterans and more. Building a Foundation provides many services to these individuals such as:

  • Advocacy
  • Resumes
  • Employment
  • Food/Clothing
  • Housing
  • Legal
  • Seal/Expungement
  • Medical
  • Mental Health
  • Bus Tokens
  • Gas
  • Bikes
  • Support Groups
  • Food Stamps
  • Medicade
  • Transitional Housing
  • Education
  • Support Groups
  • Alcohol
  • Mental
  • Life Skills
  • Anger Management


Obviously, Building a Foundation are great people working for an admirable cause. Using our base solution xBase v12 as a framework, Extensitech built them a pro-bono solution to track:

  • Constituents (the people they provide services to)
  • Contacts (any person or company they know)
  • Activities (phone calls, emails, meetings, etc.)
  • Objectives (aka Tasks)
  • Attachments (file management).


This is the first solution where I got to use FileMaker's charts. Building a Foundation likes to report on several aspects of their constituents, such as ethnicity. Their ethnicity pie chart is the first one I got to construct and our client loved it.
