The Dominion Consulting Team strongly believes in giving back to our local community. We are committed to helping organizations – especially those taking on the challenges that impact the lives of so many – achieve their missions and produce tangible, long-lasting results. The organizations that we give to are those that are near and dear to our employee’s hearts, with our Community Outreach Team always open to new ideas and organizations to support. In fact, in 2016, Dominion Consulting instituted an Employee Charitable Gift Matching program, where we will match an employee’s contribution, dollar for dollar, to a charitable organization that is meaningful to that employee.
Our support extends beyond just monetary contributions. Dominion employees at all levels dedicate their time and talent to these organizations. Here are some of the community outreach activities with which our employees are active:
For the third year in a row, Dominion Consulting partnered with Potomac River Running to put on a Veteran’s Day 5K race to support Team RWB. Over 600 runners, spectators, and volunteers participated in last year’s event, with many of our employees running in the race. Our volunteers assist with everything from race setup to handing out snacks to the runners. This is one of our most well-attended events each year and a favorite of our employees.
Calvary Women’s Services offers housing, health, education, and employment programs that empower homeless women in Washington, D.C. to change their lives. Dominion Consulting has been supporting Calvary’s Hope Awards Dinner the past few years and is honored to support such a worthy cause in the community.
The Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center seek to prevent, treat, and cure cancers by linking scientific discovery, expert and compassionate patient care, quality education, and partnership with the community. Dominion Consulting has supported the annual Lombardi Gala for a number of years, serving on the Gala planning committee and sponsoring the event.
Dominion Consulting has been a large supporter of the Mattie Miracle Cancer Foundation for several years, and has been the Presenting Sponsor of the Walk and Family Festival the last two years. Among other activities, our volunteers ran a candy station for the kids (and parents) in attendance, and provided STEM-related games and activities to keep their minds occupied while they snacked. The Mattie Miracle Walk and Family Festival is consistently a great day for all our families!
Each year, Dominion Consulting “adopts” an Our Military Kids family during the winter holidays, ensuring a wounded Veteran’s family is able to enjoy the holiday season. A few of our lucky employees each year are selected to go on a “shopping spree” to pick out toys, games, and other gifts for that family, in what is undoubtedly a very rewarding activity for all involved.
In 2017, Dominion Consulting has committed to supporting Paws of Honor, an organization that provides veterinary care for retired military and law enforcement dogs in the Washington D.C area that have served our local community, country, or even on a global level.
The Sprout Therapeutic Riding and Education Center provides equine assisted activities and therapies to individuals seeking opportunities for growth. The organization seeks to raise public awareness about special needs and to provide dynamic learning, recreation, socialization and therapy opportunities for individuals and groups in a farm environment.
