Funded Programs & Sponsorships
Mechdyne's Community Contribution Program provides direct contributions and sponsorships to select charitable organizations that make a difference in the lives of people in our communities. Since 2013, Mechdyne teammates have volunteered over 2,700 hours of their time to local charities.
Examples of recently funded programs include:
Big Brothers Big Sisters
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Iowa pairs at-risk children with caring adults, who provide mentorship and companionship to their "littles." Mechdyne continues to provide funding to the organization in addition to sponsoring and participating in their annual Bowl For Kids' Sake charity event in Marshalltown, Iowa.

Greater Houston Community Foundation
In the fall of 2017, the greater Houston, Texas, area was rocked by the devastation brought by Hurricane Harvey. In an effort to provide immediate and long-term relief, Houston's Mayor Turner and Harris County Judge Emmett created the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund. Mechdyne made a donation to the fund through the Greater Houston Community Foundation (GHCF) as a contribution for relief supplies and resources. Local Mechdyne teammates also answered the call for help by volunteering at emergency shelters, distributing supplies to families and individuals displaced by the hurricane.

Mechdyne provides funding to ForKids, an organization that provides housing, education, and support services to homeless families in southeastern Virginia. With the mission of breaking the cycle of homelessness and poverty for families and children in the community, our team is proud to be involved with such an organization.

Mechdyne teammates participate in the annual "Let's Beat Lewy" Golf Tournament in State Center, Iowa. All the money raised from the event goes directly to the organization. Along with participating in the actual event, Mechdyne matched the donations.
