“There are many things that are more important than the almighty dollar, including helping those in need.”

Mr. Bill Dunn, Sr.

JE Dunn’s commitment to giving back and serving others can be traced to our very origin. John Ernest Dunn (Ernie), founder of JE Dunn, established a culture of giving within the company long before our cranes reached skyward, and our offices stretched from coast to coast.

JE Dunn’s corporate philanthropy impacts the many markets around the nation where we build, investing 10% of net income and empowering our employees to make an impact through volunteerism and an Employee Match Program.

our vision
JE Dunn and our employees will strategically invest our time, talent, and resources to build…

  • Workforce of Tomorrow. Supporting student success, career readiness, and workforce development.
  • Healthy Communities. Enhancing communities through robust health systems, affordable housing, and cultural institutions.
