A strong community is the power behind any successful business. We’ve been very fortunate to have the support of dozens of great communities across the Midwest. To show our gratitude, we are committed to giving back to the communities we serve. This concept of “doing well and doing good” has been part of our business philosophy at Marco since 1973.

Through time, compassion, technology and money, we give back to help fellow community members in need and make our neighborhoods a better, safer and happier place to live and work.
Hear From The M:powered
Marco has proved to be a powerful partner in connecting our non-profit events with the community. Kevin Schmidt, Junior Achievement Board Member, serves on our Marketing committee and provides strategic ideas and service. Whenever we are in a pinch for events, Kevin is there to help with printing and some layout needs with Marco's experience in the business. Marco's partnership has been vital to our "JA Back to School Bucks" campaign with a local grocery store. Thanks to their in-kind work on design, layout and printing we were able to have a successful campaign. We appreciate Marco as a fundamental partner to help convey JA's mission.
United Way of Central Minnesota
We have the privilege of seeing Marco’s extraordinary work in different ways. The first being with their Managed IT services. With their support we are able to focus on doing the work that we do instead of worrying about our IT needs. Secondly, we get to see firsthand how generous Marco, AND their employees are in giving back to the community. Marco is one of United Way’s largest supporters. Because of their generosity we are able to push our mission forward and make a positive impact in Central Minnesota. They are an invaluable partner to United Way and the community.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Minnesota
The fiscal support and employee engagement provided by Marco has helped Big Brothers Big Sisters enhance and expand our program. They help increase our capacity to serve children facing adversity in our community and lead them on a path towards a brighter, more positive future. Marco’s employees and strong service culture helps us achieve our mission and empowers us to build stronger communities.
We are very thankful for our partnerships with Marco. They have always provided top notch services to our team and work every day to keep and grow our business. I am always impressed with their customer service and dedication to excellence. Our community partnership is equally exceptional. Watching the company’s culture of giving back to their community is incredible. The Y is blessed to have several Marco team members provide time, treasure and talent to our organization. Marco is committed to the communities they serve and you see with their hands on approach by team members in the community. Thank you Marco for the m:powerment you bring to your Y and communities.
Why We Do It
No, it’s not just for the warm fuzzies we feel after volunteering our talents. Giving back empowers our communities to grow stronger, dream bigger and go further. And, that’s good for all of us.
