DENVER
COMMUNITY IMPACT

Passionate about the communities we work in

Mortenson Chairman Emeritus Mort Mortenson sums it up: “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.”

You can’t mandate such an eagerness to help others. It comes from the heart and is as ingrained in the company’s culture as is a desire to deliver an exceptional experience to our partners and customers. Whether it involves helping build a home, mentoring a student or business, providing food for the hungry and holiday gifts for those in need, or merely offering a helping hand or some type of expertise, Mortenson team members approach each effort, responsibly and with a strong belief that they are simply doing the right thing.

Denver Report to the community
Mortenson has always been committed to giving back to the communities where our team members live and work, but 2020 challenged our Community Impact Team in a big way. Rather than resigning to the difficulty of the situation, we re-focused our efforts and created new engagement tools with the simple goal of helping team members achieve a greater impact than any one person could do alone. I'm incredibly proud of the way Mortenson team members met the moment and came through for one another and for our community last year.

Annual Charity Golf Tournament

Each year, Mortenson holds its annual golf tournament at Fox Hollow Golf Course in Lakewood, Colorado. At our most recent, 14th annual tournament, generous contributions from our partner sponsors helped us make a $62,000 donation benefiting the Boys & Girls Club of Metro Denver. This donation will help the Boys & Girls Clubs with their community programs to help every child succeed, and ultimately create a better Denver. Mortenson is committed to building community through a strategic focus on education annually hosting a charity golf tournament in June.

Building Community Through:

Partnership

Mortenson builds community through forging partnerships with its clients and other organizations that share our passion for making an impact. In 2020, our team volunteered over 800 hours in-person and remotely. 

Education

Our signature partnerships allow us to make a tangible impact today and help prepare the workforce of tomorrow through a strategic focus on education. In 2020, we served 46 non-profits throughout Colorado.

Leadership

Mortenson is building community through the measurable impact we are making - we lead through giving our time to non-profits where we volunteer and serve on boards. In 2020, we donated $250,000 to local non-profits.

United Way

Since 1955, Mortenson's ongoing partnership with United Way has been one of the key opportunities for the company and our team members to live out our value of stewardship, teamwork and service. In Denver, we have been partnering with United Way since opening our office in 1981. 

During our 2020 "Do Something Good" campaign, we worked with 22 different non-profit organizations across the Front Range, completing nearly 500 hours of volunteer time participating in socially responsible in-person and virtual events.
