Corporate Leaders & Employees Recognized For Exemplary Workplace Giving Performance

More than 100 corporate citizens and community leaders convened at the Washington Post auditorium last week in celebration of America’s Charities’ 10th Annual Employer Luncheon and Awards Program.

More than $89 million has brought hope and critical help to those in need in our community and around the world thanks to the generosity of Federal employees who gave through CFC, Commonwealth of Virginia employees who gave through the state campaign, and America’s Charities’ national and local corporate partners and their employees.

During the luncheon, America’s Charities paid special tribute to the following companies and their employees who, over the past ten years, have given more than $51.8 million to the charities of their choice through workplace giving campaigns in partnership with America’s Charities:

  • Lockheed Martin Corporation
  • ExxonMobil Corporation
  • Washington Gas
  • GXS
  • American Psychological Association
  • Credit Union National Association
  • National Multi Housing Council

In recognition of exemplary workplace giving campaign performance in 2011, America’s Charities also presented awards to the following corporate leaders:

  • Washington Gas received the “Growth in Giving Award” for achieving the highest growth in workplace giving contributions
  • AARP received the “Employee Involvement Award” for outstanding employee participation in workplace giving
  • Legal & General America received the “Supporting Community Award” for their commitment to supporting local charities
  • Tracye Funn from Washington Gas received the “Campaign Coordinator of the Year Award” for her excellence in vision and leadership in executing Washington Gas’s workplace giving

Paul Burke (Executive Director of American Psychiatric Foundation, Chair of  Access Committee, and America’s Charities Board Director) presided the luncheon as Master of Ceremonies and opening remarks were made by Marc Rosenberg (The Washington Post’s Senior Advertising Manager) and Steve Delfin (America’s Charities’ President and CEO).  Additionally, in a moving presentation shared by Dr. Mark Bergel, Ph.D. (Founder and Executive Director of A Wider Circle and Board Director of America’s Charities’ Community First Federation) and Chanel Giles (Director of Operations at A Wider Circle), attendees learned about A Wider Circle’s inspiring mission and were reminded of the vital role that workplace giving campaigns play in making a difference in the community.
