As design professionals, it is our social responsibility to advance our communities through innovative, sustainable design.


Being actively engaged in our communities – locally, regionally, and nationally – is central to Clark Nexsen’s culture. From professional organizations to charitable endeavors, our people pursue their passions and work together to make our world a better, healthier, happier place. Our commitment to community involvement and volunteerism is a natural extension of what we view as our professional responsibility to design high performing, sustainable projects.

Community Involvement

Beyond the ways in which our designs support vibrant, engaged communities, our people are actively involved in supporting the places in which they live, work, and play. Our team members are committed to contributing to the greater good through volunteerism, fundraising, and partnership with organizations including The United Way, American Cancer Society, Multiple Sclerosis Foundation, and many more at local levels.
• Over last 15 years, we have donated more than $100,000 of food to area food banks through CANstruction participation
• The United Way has awarded Clark Nexsen the Community Impact Award for six consecutive years
• Raised over $120,000 (since 2004) to support Multiple Sclerosis
• Raised over $35,000 since 2008 to support American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer
