At ESS, our workforce outreach is managed by the ESS Foundation, an employee-owner-led, pending 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. The mission of the ESS foundation is to promote careers in construction; provide career opportunities through education, mentorship, and training programs; and benefit community development projects throughout our region.


Whether it’s a small scholarship to a local student or a large grant to an organization working across several states, we are committed to engaging in opportunities that  align with the ESS Foundation’s ultimate goal of improving the quality of life for our current and future workforce for generations to come.

August 19th, 2019 The ESS Foundation hosted its second annual Golf Classic, our annual fundraising event. Due to the generosity of everyone involved we were able to present ABC Heart of America Apprenticeship trust with a check for $20,000 in addition to raising funds for the ESS Foundation scholarship fund. We are looking forward to seeing everyone next year at our 2020 Golf Classic. We’ll be returning to the greens at The Club at Old Hawthorne in Columbia, MO.

See you there!
