Cassaday & Company of McLean, VA places an emphasis on employee participation in its philanthropic efforts. Not only does the firm organize service projects such as serving meals to those in need and highway cleanups several times a year, but they also boast 100% employee participation at each event.
Cassaday & Company is determined to make charitable giving for its employees easily accessible. The firm created its Charitable Fund in 2008 to do just that. Any contribution made by an employee to this fund is matched 200% (up to $2,000 per year) by Chairman & CEO Stephan Cassaday. One of the drivers behind establishing this fund was the idea that they could have a greater impact as a collective group than they could with individual donations. During its last fiscal year, the firm and its employees contributed a total of $185,000 through the fund to charities such as the Wounded Warrior Project, PRS, Inc., So Others Might Eat, Youth for Tomorrow, and A-SPAN.
