At Corvias, we believe we have a responsibility to make the world a better place. It’s at the core of who we are as an organization and a team.
Our Giving Back programs support our partners, employees and the members of the communities we serve. We give in ways that have a long-term impact to positively influence the communities where we live and work.
How Corvias Gives Back
While in-person volunteering was challenging in 2020, we were proud to be able to meet community needs financially.
In 2020, our employees donated more than $64,000 to non-profit organizations. With our 2:1 employee donation match, that meant Corvias donated more than $194,000.
Our Giving Back efforts support:
- Educational goals of military families
- Communities where we live and work
- Local entrepreneurs, with a focus on minority, veteran and women-owned business enterprises
- Conservation of our earth's natural resources
- Making Corvias the best place to work for our employees
In support of the communities where we live and work, we encourage all Corvias employees to participate in volunteering activities in support of the military, higher education and their local municipalities.
Corvias is committed to working with local and small business enterprises, especially those that are veteran, women and minority owned. More than 70 percent, or $2.8 billion, of our total spend on projects has gone to local and minority business enterprises. Our Mentor Protégé Program works to ensure the long-term success of local entrepreneurs.
Our Founder, John Picerne, established Corvias Foundation in 2006 to give back to the families of the men and women who serve in the United States military. Since that time, the Foundation has invested more than $15 million directly to the education of scholars who contribute to the future of our nation. Corvias Foundation works with students, colleges and universities, military families, and partners to empower individuals to reach higher and contribute to communities in a more meaningful way.
To support the resiliency of the communities where we live and work, we must take proactive measures to ensure their sustainability for years to come. We take advantage of energy efficient features and fixtures wherever possible to reduce our dependency on fossil fuels and reduce pollutants in our environment.
Each employee receives paid time off to volunteer during the workday for organizations that are important to them. Employees also have the opportunity to volunteer with their teams in support of their community, and our 2:1 donation match encourages them to generously donate to those in need.
