VCC has given more than $2 million to charities across the country since being founded in Little Rock, Ark., in 1987. The company’s more than 340 employees share a commitment to a family-oriented culture and to building world-class facilities, but it’s their dedication to service that they feel truly sets them apart.

“Since day one, it has been a crucial part of our culture that we share our successes, skills and resources with those less fortunate, says VCC Managing Director Derek Alley. “It’s natural for our team to want to get involved and give back. We want to do our small part to collectively make a large impact.” 

This year, in celebration of its 30th anniversary, VCC has developed a program for each office or jobsite to perform 30 acts of kindness. “It has been a fun and engaging way to share our experiences across all of our locations,” Alley says.

VCC has worked closely with many charities over the years, often developing decades-long relationships. The firm is particularly focused on serving organizations that support active military and veterans, special needs children and education; for example, Project Hero, Community Connections, KIPP DFW, the Arkansas Children’s Hospital, the Simon Youth Foundation, the Alyssa V. Phillips Foundation and the Variety Charity of Texas.

“Across the board, all members of the VCC team are supportive of our community efforts in one way or another. Many give their time, while others are champions for the causes across their networks. We share a lot of our colleagues’ efforts in the community through social media, quarterly newsletters and industry outreach,” Alley says.

Looking ahead to the fall, VCC will be hosting its third annual VCC Cares Charity Golf Classic on Oct. 2 in two locations: Little Rock and Dallas. The event is organized through the VCC Cares Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that partners with charitable, community-centered organizations to distribute funds to those in need of financial support nationwide.
