Compassion

Mid-Continent Engineering is committed to philanthropy. Every year we donate between 3 and 8% of our after-tax profits in support of charitable causes throughout Minnesota, the US, and overseas. As a family company and corporate citizen, we feel this philanthropic commitment not only benefits the direct recipients of our support, but adds to the lives of our employees.


SOME OF THE ORGANIZATIONS WE SUPPORT

Environment

CHEETAH CONSERVATION FUND (CCF)
Based in Otjiwarongo, Namibia, the CCF was founded in 1990 by Dr. Laurie Marker and has received support from Mid-Continent since 1996. Over the past nineteen years, the CCF has become an internationally-recognized centre of excellence in research and education on cheetahs and their eco-systems.

In Namibia, and throughout the world, the CCF works to:
Create and manage long term conservation strategies for the cheetah
Develop and implement better livestock management practices, eliminating the need for African farmers to kill these beautiful cats
Conduct conservation education programs for local villagers, ranchers and school children
Continue intensive scientific research in cheetah genetics, biology and species survival
