Washington Business Journal Corporate Philanthropy Award
Cassaday & Company, Inc., is humbled to be recognized by the Washington Business Journal as the 2nd largest benefactor on the “Corporate Philanthropy: Small Companies by Giving in Greater D.C.” list. Featuring only 10 total companies, the list recognizes organizations in the DMV area dedicated to making a difference to those in need. Cassaday & Co. donated over $294,000 to charities during 2020. The bulk of these donations went to the organizations that the firm supports through its Charitable Fund.
In a year that left many charities struggling because of the pandemic, 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.
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 PathForward (formerly A-SPAN), Central Union Mission, PRS, Inc., So Others Might Eat (S.O.M.E), and Boulder Crest Foundation (newly added in 2021).
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. To help these very deserving organizations, the Cassaday & Company, Inc. Charitable Fund matched gifts donated in 2020 to PathForward, Central Union Mission, PRS, Inc., and S.O.M.E. from employees, clients, and other generous donors up to $50,000 per organization, for a total of $200,000.
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 Chairman & CEO Steve Cassaday but is engrained within our culture as a firm that leads by example and always does the right thing.
