Our interactive and team-based environment is reflected not only in the workplace but in our efforts of giving back as well. Our individual and company-wide charitable and volunteer donations contribute to our company’s overall culture of success – and fun!

Company-Wide Outreach

MARK MALONE SCHOLARSHIP FUND
In 2004, MFEC company founder Mark Malone died unexpectedly in a plane crash. Mark was not only the founder of our company, but our mentor, visionary and most importantly, our friend. In honor of Mark, a scholarship has been established by Debi Malone made possible by contributions from employees, family and friends. The purpose of this scholarship is to perpetuate the memory of Mark Malone and provide financial assistance to students enrolled in Architectural Engineering and Construction Science at Kansas State University. The recipients of available scholarships are students who demonstrate academic achievement, are involved in student leadership organizations and enrolled in the Architectural Engineering and Construction Science Department in the College of Engineering at Kansas State University.

Individual Outreach

PROJECT CHANGE
Project Change started with the goal to transform the world around us by working with established charities in the Kansas City Metro. Project Change brings together a team to work with a local charity and come up with a project that will fill a need the charity has. This specific charity event pictured is for Happy Bottoms. Volunteers, like MFEC’s April Halling, helped Happy Bottoms to get diapers distributed to those in need. April participates in a variety of Project Change events annually.

SUMMIT TECHNOLOGY ACADEMY
Promoting Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) curricula and future engineers is inline with MFEC core values. A part of the Missouri Innovation Campus (MIC) students who attend Summit Tech during their junior and senior years of high school, earn their associate degree at approximately the same time they receive their high-school diploma- jump starting their path to college. MFEC volunteers prepare students for interviews and train them with real-life networking and communication skills preparing them for high-tech paid internships. The internships combined with MIC coursework provide the students with highly sought-after skills for well-paying careers in STEM fields.
