Working together to improve our community

As the Department of Energy’s prime contractor for the Vit Plant, Bechtel has a responsibility to invest in the local community where our team members live, work, and play. Each year, Bechtel contributes to charitable organizations and events that make lasting impacts on the vitality of the Tri-Cities, across education, family and community, and health and safety. Whether a long-standing relationship like the United Way, a legacy project like the Family Fishing Pond, or an emerging relationship, Bechtel has supported the Tri-Cities for decades. We are proud to partner with these community organizations and help make the Tri-Cities a great place to live, learn, work, and play.
