Building Foundations Fall/Win 2012

For its fifth year, the DPR Foundation has pledged to contribute $845,000 in grants to support youth organizations across the country. This focused, company-wide outreach exists to help socio-economically disadvantaged children (grades K-12) within the communities in which DPR operates. Along with financial contributions, DPR employees become deeply involved with their chosen organizations, volunteering their time to mentor, build, tutor, plan events and more. The grantees and the DPR offices that support them include:

  • Boys & Girls Club of Metro Atlanta, Brookhaven Club - Atlanta
  • Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito (new grantee) - San Diego
  • Future for KIDS - Phoenix
  • Girls, Inc. of Orange County (new grantee) - Newport Beach, Pasadena
  • Improving Chandler Area Neighborhoods (ICAN) - Phoenix
  • John Avery Boys & Girls Club - Raleigh-Durham
