We offer our employees and their families the opportunity to build a life and career in some of the most beautiful cities in the Midwest. We help build and maintain these communities by encouraging our employees to volunteer and become involved with community organizations and boards, sponsoring local programs and events, funding scholarships at partner schools, hosting career days, participating in career fairs, and providing education, training, and expertise throughout the year.
Among annual scholarships that Ahern fund at partner schools across our regions, each summer we also offer an internal $5,000 scholarship to sons and daughters of employees. This is in memory of former Executive Vice President of Finance and Corporate Services, Michael E. Krueger.
We also partner closely with the United Way in our communities. Dozens of Ahern volunteers demonstrate our lifelong genuine dedication to each other and our communities by volunteering for the United Way’s annual Week of Caring each fall. The company consistently exceeds our annual fundraising goal through pledge card donations, corporate raffles, cookouts, challenges, and other campaign activities.
In addition, we support a range of charities including Boys and Girls Club, Free Spirit Riders, Habitat for Humanity, Solutions Center, YMCA Strong Kids and Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin Charitable Foundation.
