Our mission to help our people build great lives doesn’t just include building roads. It goes beyond our construction work to include community activities like donation drives, charity events, and other service-based activities. Our people stay active both on the job and off, with volunteer initiatives that take place every year.
Service has always been part of our company, with roots in our founder’s spiritual calling to help his fellow man. That calling lives on today as a fundamental part of our C.W. Matthews culture. We firmly believe that by helping others, we help ourselves grow and develop on our journey to be the best we can be.
At C.W. Matthews, our mission to help others starts at home with our employees. We know life takes unexpected turns, which can catch even the most prepared of us off-guard and leave us needing help. As an employer, we feel we have a responsibility to help our people in those situations with whatever assistance we can offer.
In 2020, our company formed the CWM Charitable Fund to give financial support to team members facing unexpected hardship in their personal lives. It’s our way, as a family, of looking out for each other in times of need.
The fund is made of voluntary employee contributions made throughout the year, and is given as-needed to C.W. Matthews employees who are struggling with unexpected hardship like family illness, home loss, or other crises that have left them in need of support. The money is 100% donated, and its use is decided by a board made up of seven employees representing divisions of the company.
