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.

There is no greater gift we can give others than our time and treasure. We do so enthusiastically, with a smile on our face and delight in our eyes.

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.

Our Impact

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

Connecting With Our Youth

Earlier this year, we received correspondence from the mother of 5th grader, Will Bock.  Will had recently participated in BizTown at Junior Achievement North in the Twin Cities.  His job for the day was CEO of Mortenson! After the event, he was very interested in meeting Dan Johnson, our CEO…who, in turn, was interested in meeting Will.

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.

If you would like to inform us about a volunteer event in your area, please reach out. At Mortenson, it’s always a good day to ‘Do Something Good.’
