Giving Back to Nashville: How Crain Construction Gets Involved in the Community

One Generation Away smiling volunteer


Crain Construction was built on a foundation of prioritizing people over profits and community over competition.

While this has obvious implications for how we work alongside clients during a construction project, it also impacts the way we serve those around us. Giving back isn’t just something we do, it’s part of who we are.

In recent years, our employees have volunteered hours to rebuild homes so seniors can age in place, served meals to the homeless, walked for charitable causes, and supported nonprofits working to improve the quality of life for all Middle Tennesseans.


Highlights from Our Community Involvement Around Nashville

Many of our employees have brought their personal passions or causes to the attention of the rest of the team. Over the years, we have developed an ongoing commitment to giving back to these organizations and created annual service opportunities with the following organizations:







Our value of serving others has influenced the way we’ve worked for nearly a century. It is both gratifying and fulfilling to use our construction skills and knowledge to help a Nashvillian who needs a helping hand​​. Our employees have made a huge impact by giving their time, energy, and resources over the past year.

We are proud of our community and grateful to be able to partner with such incredible organizations to impact the lives of our neighbors and friends.
