… helping charities do what they’re good at.

  • When you donate directly to a charity either by cash or check, it costs money for the charity to process that donation. In fact, charities spend millions of dollars a year processing donations and generating receipts.
  • Every cent they spend on administrative tasks is money that doesn’t go directly to their social missions.
  • Through our program, recipient charities pay a small transaction fee which amounts to a fraction of what they would otherwise spend to process funds – getting more of your money to the programs you support.
  • Causes prefer the Benevity model because it vastly reduces administrative work, at the lowest processing rate in the industry; minimizes lost donation checks; and lets them focus on what they’re good at – facilitating funding for vulnerable communities around the world.

Inclusion & Diversity

At Mortenson, we are on a mission to create an inclusive culture that values the diversity of each and every team member. We know that our teams are rich with unique talents, skills, and experiences; and that to be at their very best, we must appreciate and leverage the individual capabilities of each team member.

Inclusion is including everyone’s voice and talents. Diversity describes the differences between people.

Inclusion and Diversity is essential for our growth as a company and individual team member growth. Inclusive teams allow everyone greater opportunity to contribute their ideas, which propels innovation and creativity in our work.
