In The Spirit Of Giving
Arch Nexus is committed to the communities in which we work and actively supports the causes that best reflect our purpose. Our passion for community stewardship is a key aspect of our company culture. Whether in the projects we design or in the causes we support our purpose is to help elevate society through our influence on the built and natural environment. And because we see verbs where others see nouns, our Philanthropy Program is not just about financial support, it’s about DOING.
Community volunteering is an investment in a community and its peoples. Volunteering provides valuable community services and strengthens a community in many ways such as supporting families, improving schools, supporting youth, and beautifying the community. Community volunteering is an important measure of the civic health of a community, a state, and a nation.

We give much more than money – we also give our time. Arch Nexus offers each employee up to sixteen hours of paid time off work annually to participate in volunteer activities. Up to eight of those hours are utilized in the form of a coordinated, office-wide event. And most importantly, our employee-owners select the options that will best serve to regenerate communities and the people within them.
Money is an effective tool, too. Each year Nexus reinvests 1% of profits into programs that are making a difference for those they serve. As a sponsor of the International Living Future Institute we are helping to reshape and inspire an entire industry. The university scholarship that bears our name is helping to create a brighter future for those who are willing to invest in themselves through education. And our support of Make a Wish and Foster Care helps children find hope and home – two things that everyone deserves.
