As a part of our Community Impact Program, and in line with our core values, we offer team members access to Benevity, an easy-to-use workplace giving and volunteer tracking tool.

Benevity is a powerful tool that is easy to use and impactful for online workplace giving plus volunteering through our Community Impact Program. 

Benevity aggregates donation payments to further reduce fundraising costs. That means even small donations can be delivered in a cost-effective way. So, whether you give a little or give a lot, it will always make a meaningful impact.

Company support

  • Company Matching to the United Way helps you optimize your giving and easily get more money to the charities we all support. 
  • Mortenson will match team member donations (up to $1,000 per team member) to the United Way through Benevity. There are more than two million causes to donate to in Benevity.
  • Simple payroll deductions help you give without even pulling out your credit card – although that is an option, as is PayPal® and Apple Pay®. ​You can also easily set recurring donations to automatically do the good for you.
  • Whether participating in Company Featured Campaigns or giving directly to a charity of your choice, flexible giving options allow you to give your hard-earned dollars to your favorite causes.

Track your donations

  • You can track all your Benevity donations (and tax receipts) in one place, so come tax season, or any day you want to feel good about what you’ve done, they are ready and waiting.
  • Easily search for and join Volunteer Opportunities.
  • Track your volunteer time.

Spread the word

  • Send virtual Charitable Gift Cards! Send one to your colleagues, your mom, your friends, or your dog. If they have an email address, you can send them a personalized and unique gift and better yet, you get the tax receipt.
  • Donate and manage your charitable relationships on your own terms. You won’t receive communications from anyone that you haven’t asked to contact you.
  • You will be able to easily access Benevity no matter where you are through your mobile device.

Feel good about giving back… 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.
  • Charities prefer the Benevity model because it vastly reduces administrative work at the lowest processing rate in the industry and lets them focus on what they’re good at – providing programs for the community.

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.
