Community Involvement

It is important to Montana Rail Link to give back to the communities that we serve. As one of Montana’s major employers, we provide jobs for workers living in towns all along our route, and we promote the well-being of these communities, seeking to be a responsible neighbor.

We realize that the success we enjoy as a company is due to the strong work ethic, talents and professionalism of our employees, and we are grateful for their efforts. Montana Rail Link employees contribute significantly to the communities in which they live by donating their time, financial resources and expertise to help hundreds of community-based organizations they are passionate about.

In addition to fostering the volunteer activities of our employees, MRL’s culture of philanthropy includes our giving as a company as well as our support of the
Dennis & Phyllis Washington Foundation, which is funded through a portion of our profits as well as the profits of other participating Washington Companies. Since its inception, Foundation giving and the Washington Family’s personal contributions to charitable causes totals nearly a quarter of a billion dollars.
