Corporate Citizenship

“Since its inception, Foundation giving and the Washington Family’s personal contributions to charitable causes total nearly a quarter of a billion dollars.”

Giving back is one of the core values at Modern Machinery. Reaching out to our local communities is an integral part of who we are. Modern Machinery strives to make a difference from assisting participants at the Special Olympics to painting houses for Habitat for Humanity.

Our culture of philanthropy is best illustrated by our giving through the Dennis & Phyllis Washington Foundation as part of the Washington Group of Companies. The Foundation’s mission is investing in people to improve the quality of their lives. Priorities are youth-oriented programs, the advancement of educational opportunities, and the needs of underprivileged people. The Dennis & Phyllis Washington Foundation has supported a broad spectrum of worthy causes since its establishment.
