Giving Back to Our Communities
Kraus-Anderson upholds a proud tradition of “building buildings and building people.” We believe in giving back to the communities. These communities have given so much to us and providing for those in need.
Our annual corporate giving activities include Hearts & Hammers, KA Bike Duluth Festival, the Kraus-Anderson Fall Giving campaign, and our Holiday Charitable Giving program. In 2015 we launched KA Has Heart. This provides KA employees with opportunities to provide volunteer service to selected nonprofits during their working hours. Over 145 KA employees provided over 600 hours of service in the first year of the program. In addition, we provide dollar and in-kind support to numerous other causes and organizations each year. Especially those relating to health care and education.
Kraus-Anderson has formalized its longstanding commitment to community through membership in the Minnesota Keystone Program. This program distinguishes companies contributing a minimum 2 percent of pretax earnings to address community needs through cash and in-kind contributions. Kraus-Anderson has given in excess of 5 percent for the past five years.
