Washington Business Journal Corporate Philanthropy Award
Cassaday & Company, Inc., is humbled to be recognized by the Washington Business Journal as the 5th largest benefactor on the “Corporate Philanthropy: Small Companies by Giving in Greater D.C.” list. This publication recognizes organizations in the DMV area dedicated to making a difference to those in need. Cassaday & Co. donated over $120,600 to charities during 2021, with the bulk of those donations going to the organizations that the firm supports through its Charitable Fund.
One of the ethos that our organization stands by is to “always do the right thing”. This extends past the way we treat our clients and coworkers, and applies to how we treat our community. We are blessed as a firm to have been in a position where we were able provide immediate assistance to local organizations that support some of the neediest populations in our communities, like the homeless, food insecure, and mentally ill.
Chairman & CEO Steve Cassaday encourages all to consider giving back to the communities they are a part of saying, “for societies to be successful and flourish, those who have enjoyed success must recognize the obligation to give back”.
About Our Charitable Involvement:
Cassaday & Co.’s Charitable Fund (CCCF) was created in 2008 to support local organizations helping those most in need of necessities such as food, water, medical care, refuge, shelter, sanctuary, education, and training. Organizations supported by our Charitable Fund include Boulder Crest Foundation, Central Union Mission, PathForward (formerly A-SPAN), PRS, Inc., and So Others Might Eat (S.O.M.E),
Through volunteer work, charitable auctions and events, and more, our team has had the opportunity to form relationships with the administrative members at these organizations, as well as those that they serve on a daily basis. Chairman & CEO Steve Cassaday encourages employee donations to these organizations by personally matching every contribution to the CCCF by 200 percent.
In addition to monetary contributions, our firm also prides itself on how many of our employees donate their personal time to these deserving organizations. From cleaning up our highways to serving as emcees for annual charity auction events, our staff takes the initiative to give back to our local community. This expectation is not only set by firm leadership but is engrained within our culture as a firm that leads by example and always does the right thing.
Cassaday & Co. was previously recognized for this award in 2019, 2020, and 2021.
