​“PCL Construction’s leadership never ceases to amaze me. Their employees truly care about the Metro Denver community and that is evident not only in their beautiful buildings, but through their incredible generosity. PCL Construction understands that when the full force of the community is united, no problem is too big to solve.  Mile High United Way is grateful to have them as a partner,” Christine Benero, president and CEO, Mile High United Way.

This year’s campaign included a Topgolf fundraising event, wine cork pull, company-wide pot luck lunch, and a 50/50 raffle which raised nearly $15,000. Additionally, PCL employees donated more than $431,000 during the two week effort, 13 of those donations being at the Tocqueville Society level of $10,000 or more, and was matched by the PCL Corporate office for a total donation of more than $877,000.
“PCL has been a proud supporter of the Mile High United Way for nearly two decades donating more than $16 million to the organization,” said Shaun Yancey, president and COO of PCL’s US Operations. “As an employee-owned company, we take great pride in supporting our charitable partners, ensuring our contributions are put to the best use for the community as a whole.”
The support provided by PCL Construction helps ensure Mile High United Way is moving the needle on important community impact goals including children entering school ready to succeed, children are reading at grade-level by the end of third grade and youth exiting the child welfare system are prepared for the future and entry into the workforce. Donations to Mile High United Way safeguards that we, as a community, are changing the odds for individuals and families in Metro Denver and moving them out of poverty.​
