The Mascaro Advantage

Mascaro Construction employees have a strong track record of giving back to advance the CF Foundation’s mission. A giving culture is what the late founder, Jack Mascaro, first established when he started the highly successful company.

June 13, 2022 | “When my wife, Maryann, was pregnant with our second child, Sofia, we answered a call from the doctor that would change our lives forever,” recalls Nate Martin. “He said that our unborn daughter had cystic fibrosis. At that time, we didn’t know much about CF.” 

The Martins began reaching out to their community, including Nate’s boss at the time, John Mascaro. John — son of company founder Jack Mascaro  immediately said he wanted Mascaro Construction employees to step up and help the Martins. True to form, the team jumped right into the fight against CF.

Mascaro Construction, which was first established in 1988 on the simple premise ‘to do it right, the first time,’ has grown to be one of Pennsylvania’s largest contractors. The 175-plus employees generate approximately $350 million in annual revenues from projects in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast states. 

“A giving culture is what Jack first established when he started the company,” says Nate. “It’s what we call The Mascaro Advantage  provide a family atmosphere and do the right thing. My colleagues have been by our family’s side for nearly 15 years. They were rooting for Sofia before she was even born.” 

Mascaro Construction team volunteers have walked in Great Strides together and held annual Get Together for a Cause fundraising events. In 2018, Mascaro helped lead the formation of Construct the Cure, a CF Foundation national corporate team. Mascaro Construction and Construct the Cure raised nearly $100,000 in 2021 to help advance the Foundation’s mission.

“We are grateful to Mascaro Construction. Their efforts are helping people like our daughter, Sofia, who today is a spirited, happy kid,” says Nate. “Because of generous companies like Mascaro, there are some fantastic treatments, but ultimately, we are holding out hope for a cure.” 

The Martins live with their three children, Olivia, Sofia, and Lucas in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Jack Mascaro passed away in 2020. His three sons, John, Jeffrey, and Michael proudly carry forth his legacy as leaders at Mascaro Construction.
