Living out our Vision to Improve Communities
As builders, we are naturally “Doers”…
Nunn’s mission and dedication to improvement is focused on enabling others to succeed. This commitment goes beyond construction. We are engaged citizens both on and off the jobsite. We are people who don’t just talk about change, but ones who take action and DO the things needed to create it.
When the COVID-19 pandemic began affecting our nation, state and community, we first focused on safety and establishing protocols to keep our staff and jobs safely operating. But, we also knew that we wouldn’t be Nunn Construction if our response stopped at only trying to maintain business as usual.
Between pandemic relief and the Black Lives Matter movement we are taking actions – to advocate, volunteer and provide financial support for groups that bring change and equality to our local community. We are grateful to be essential and wish to share our gratitude.
Grateful Challenge Grant
From the construction industry, we know a team is more powerful and effective when we work together.
We challenge our business community, collaborators and individuals to join Nunn Construction in supporting two amazing organizations: COSILoveYou and Educating Children of Color.
Your Donation Dollars will be Doubled through August 1, 2020 – please mention the “Nunn Gratitude Challenge” when donating to COSILoveYou or Educating Children of Color. We are committed to match up to $10,000.
COSILOVEYOU – Backpack Bash 2020 (DONATE)
COSILOVEYOU – Backpack Bash 2020
Out of our gratitude for remaining open during COVID-19, Nunn Construction is proud to support COSILoveYou and its many community partners in their upcoming 2020 Backpack Bash. This collaborative, multi-location event brings together dozens of community partners to help over 10,000 kids in the Pikes Peak region get a great start to the school year.
For just $5 per student, COSILoveYou and its partners will send students back to school with a backpack full of school supplies, plus a handful of other supportive connections to help families succeed throughout the year. Nunn Construction is challenging the Colorado Springs community to match or exceed its commitment to outfit 1,000 students for the upcoming school year.
Donate today, and let’s see what we can do together!
Educating Children of Color (DONATE)
Educating Children of Color
The money raised through our collaboration with Nunn Construction’s Gratitude Challenge Match will be used to support the 2021 Leadership Academy and a new program starting this summer to provide free scholarship workshops for students throughout the Colorado Springs Community. These workshops will instruct students on basic writing skills.
Educating Children of Color (ECOC) is a 501(c)3 non-profit committed to changing statistics that show that children and youth of color are more likely to be poor, involved in the child welfare system, age out of foster care with permanence, less likely to graduate on time, more likely to be involved in the juvenile and adult justice systems.
Donate below, and help us change the statistics for the children of color in Colorado Springs!

Other Organizations We’ve Supported
We are proud of our COVID-19 response on and off our jobsites, and have already jumped into action in many ways. Nunn recently ran a competition for donations between our major construction project sites to raise dollars for four organizations on front lines in our community, doing emergency relief in addition to a separate donation to Downtown Development Authority. In total, we raised $11,350 from our employees, trade partners and subcontractors over a 3-week period, with relief donations given in May 2020.
