Serving the Vulnerable in our Communities
At Mortenson, we are building for the greater good - to make a positive social, economic and environmental impact in the communities we serve. With a core focus on Wellness, Environment, Education, and Shelter, our Community Impact Program allows our teams to identify specific needs in their communities to help where and how they can.
Giving Back Made Easy
We make it easy to give back to our beloved communities. Through our innovative online platform, we have access to over 2 million non-profits aiding vulnerable populations in various areas of need.
Every day, our team members are provided opportunities to participate in local volunteer events, donate to worthy causes, take action where action is needed and improve ourselves in order to serve our communities as better people.
The efforts of our team members have supported more than 600 non-profit community partnerships across the country and around the world. Beyond our team member giving, as a company, we are committed to donating 5% of our pre-tax earnings to charitable causes.
Community Impact Program
Operated under our company value of Stewardship, our program enables team members in our local offices to address and adapt to the ever-changing needs of the communities in which we live and work. We do this through:
- Developing community partnerships
- Empowering team members to give back in the ways and places they are passionate
- Being a responsible member of the global community
Staying Active, No Matter What
At Mortenson, we love to give back; it's at the core of our culture as a company. Though the pandemic initially challenged our ability to give back, it did not stop our efforts; it only helped us shift our thinking. By being creative, remaining focused and leveraging valuable partnerships, we've been able to stay active and engaged in our communities.

Engaging the Community During our Projects
It's important to us to be connected with the communities where our projects take place. As we complete a project, we intend to walk away knowing we have grown as individuals from having the opportunity to become part of the community. And we hope, that as a result, the community benefits as well. See how it happens in this video.
