Corporate Spotlight: Downing Construction, Inc.

Growing up, Downing Construction, Inc. President Denis Frischmeyer was taught through his parents and Catholic School education the importance of giving back to those less fortune than him. These lessons have always stuck with Denis through his personal philanthropy and also through his business.

“As a business, it is important we lead by example for our clients, team members, and families,” said Frischmeyer.

“We need to demonstrate that we are committed to be the best not only in our industry but in supporting organizations dedicated to helping individuals who are unable to enjoy the quality of life we enjoy.”

Since making its first donation in 2013, Downing has given more than $30,000 to Mercy Medical Center and House of Mercy. This year, Downing stepped forward to become Host Sponsor of the 2018 House of Mercy Game Show Gala alongside business partner B3 Physician Planning. In addition, Frischmeyer chairs the House of Mercy board, serves on the Mercy Foundation board and co-chairs the 2018 House of Mercy Game Show Gala.

“We couldn’t be more excited to serve as the Host Sponsor alongside B3 Physicians,” said Denis.

“Before I became involved with Mercy and House of Mercy five years ago, I didn’t understand the key role they play in helping men and women battling addiction. Our organization is proud to support these individuals on their road to recovery.”
