Heartfelt Giving at Its Finest

As a member of the Jacksonville Beach, Fla., community for the past 11 years, FaverGray does more than build award-winning student housing, apartment, senior living and hospitality projects.

Fighting Hunger One Can at a Time

In the past five years, Dixon Hughes Goodman (DHG), a public accounting firm with more than 2,000 employees in 12 states, has donated nearly 3.8 million pounds of food to hunger relief organizations through its Count the Cans initiative. This year alone, the firm donated 593,464 pounds of food and 12,020 pounds of pet food. 

Extreme Makeover: Landscape Edition

A Shipment of Hope for Haiti

A Good Deed for Good Friday

This past March, Rio Grande Fence Co. donated and installed 560 linear feet of chain link fencing to surround the athletic field at the Global Outreach Developments International (G.O.D. Int’l) headquarters in the underserved Hopewell neighborhood of Old Hickory, Tenn. 

Philanthropy as a Strategic Initiative

Meyer Najem is proud of the fact it builds more than buildings; it builds relationships. And a big part of that is building relationships with the community surrounding its headquarters in Fishers, Ind. 

A Balanced, Employee-Driven Way to Give

The mission of Deacon Corp. has long included a commitment to “support our communities,” so 10 years ago the West Coast contractor formalized its charitable giving by creating a foundation to more evenly allocate funds from year to year and among its offices in Washington, Oregon and California.
