DynCorp International has been named a finalist in Washington Business Journal’s Corporate Philanthropy Awards, in the Corporate Philanthropy by Giving category. The finalists include the region’s most active and inspirational companies and nonprofits who have made a difference in their communities through both financial and volunteer philanthropic work.
Honorees are the companies from the lists compiled by the Washington Business Journal and are organized by local giving (dollars) and volunteer hours, as well as law firms (pro bono hours). Rankings and the numbered companies on each list are announced during a breakfast awards program. Additional awards also presented include the Citizenship Award and a finalist for the National Jefferson Awards for Public Service.
DynCorp International team members all over the world base actions and decisions on a set of shared values:
- We Serve – willingly in all locations and conditions.
- We Care – for the safety, security, development, and well-being of our employees.
- We Empower – our employees to succeed in a culture based on trust, respect, loyalty, and commitment.
- We Perform – with a relentless commitment to exceeding expectations.
- We Do the Right Thing – always, for our customers, employees, and those we serve.
Embracing these core values, DI supports several organizations that benefit the communities in which we live and work. In the Greater Washington, D.C.-area, DI supports several organizations including the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) and USO of Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore (USO-Metro).
DI has supported TAPS through its annual Honor Guard Galas and several other fundraising events over the years. In 2013, DI also participated in the first ever TysonsRegional™ Chamber 5K Corporate Challenge, raising $10,000 for TAPS through the event. DI also raised more than $12,700 last year to benefit TAPS through its unique Red Shirt Friday campaign.
Also in 2013, DI was once again named as a four-star level corporate partner to USO-Metro, and was named to its 2013 Circle of the Stars. This elite award is bestowed on the top-level corporate supporters of USO-Metro’s important mission to lift the spirits of military service members and their families.
