Several times a year, ERDMAN employees come together to give back to our communities. Collaborating with area not for profits, we raise awareness of the challenges facing our neighbors, and work alongside them to close gaps and increase opportunities.

United Way Fundraising Campaign

Every year ERDMAN participates in the United Way Campaign, benefitting our neighbors in Dane County.

United Way efforts are focused on specific goals in the three priority areas of our community’s Agenda for Change: Education, Income, and Health. The money ERDMAN raises through company giving, employee pledges, and events (Penny Wars, Chili Cook-Off, Silent Auction) goes directly to area nonprofits who are creating healthier and safer communities.

ERDMAN encourages our employees to be actively involved with community service outside of the workplace. Each year, employees are provided with paid volunteer time, and many of us give much more than that. We use our passions and talents to make a difference. Our mission and vision are not just words. They are a lifestyle.

of Ethete, Wyoming.


Situated in the foothills of the Wind River Mountain Range in northwestern Wyoming, Ethete is home to a people who are rich with culture but impoverished by hardships – their town has one of the highest per capita levels of violent crime, suicide, and substance abuse in the United States.


Working alongside Native Americans, I have lead numerous work crews of volunteers who perform physical, moral, and spiritual support to residents. In addition, my teams have worked with tribal leaders to help preserve cultural artifacts and provide safe summer programs for the tribe’s children.

design services for projects in underserved parts of the world.


Volunteers will work onsite, typically for 2 intense weeks, directly with user groups to better understand design and construction conditions through the eyes of the people that will use these buildings. A typical project will include program and schematic level drawings, enough for procuring donations and grants to complete the works. With my medical experience I have worked on two hospital designs in Egypt and one design recently in Togo, Africa.

make a difference in Wisconsin.


BizStarts works with entrepreneurs, service providers, capital connections and other resources to help launch and grow new companies that will create sustainable jobs from small stores to large, scalable start-ups.


I love engaging, debating, and mentoring start-ups with new ideas, products and services from an app that donates to causes, to new technologies to keep seniors engaged with family and quick on-demand access to physicians. Both BizStarts and ERDMAN inspire me to think beyond what’s possible to imagine what can change lives around us.
