Being a good neighbor is a big part of our philosophy.
One of the ways we connect with the communities where we live and do business is through providing philanthropic support that specifically addresses programs in the Northern Virginia/DC-Metro area focusing on children, veterans, and health and human services.
In order to create greater impact, we leverage a powerful combination of funding and volunteerism, both addressing the needs of the community and supporting the passion of our employees. These activities help create a ripple effect of positive change and economic stability in communities in which we live and work.
If you know of a local 501c3, focusing on children, veterans, or health and human services issues, that could need some marketing assistance – for one full year – please have them apply. Grant applications are due on November 30th and decisions are made on December 25th.
