At Dawson Van Orden our company vision includes “positively changing the industries where we work and live”. We strongly believe that donating to local charities is a valuable step in trying to fulfill our company vision. From the beginning in 1974 we have been active supporters of local and global charities including donating many thousands of dollars each year. In 2015 alone, Dawson Van Orden donated over $25,000 to charitable organizations. We are also very proud of our employees who donate their personal time to support many great causes like the Houston Food Bank and Movember.


For 2016, we are excited to take it to the next level with additional charity donations on a quarterly basis. As we continue to grow the number of requests for donations has also increased whether coming from employees or clients. So, this year the employees will vote for which charities receive these additional donations.

All charity organizations can submit an application form and will be included an employee vote at the end of each quarter to receive all or some portion of a $2,000 quarterly donation. The winning charities will be featured on our site for the next quarter with a company match for all additional personal donations by our employees.
