The United Way will use the money to invest in programs and initiatives working to advance the common good in education, income and health throughout Madison County and the region. The company's contribution helped kick off its annual employee-contribution campaign, which ends mid-November.

Bechtel Parsons' company gift, combined with the gifts of employees, has been the largest United Way contribution in Madison County in recent years.
