The Pape-Dawson Engineers’ Charitable Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, was created in 2015 in honor of Pape-Dawson’s 50th anniversary to provide employees the opportunity to make a tangible, significant impact on employee-selected, local, nonprofit organizations. To date, Pape-Dawson and employees have raised and donated $850,000 on behalf of the Charitable Foundation to various charities throughout Texas.
“We appreciate our relationship with Pape-Dawson. For years we have been so blessed to have their support of our organization. They’ve delivered meals, provided generous gifts, and assisted with projects,” said Vinsen Faris, CFRE, Chief Executive Officer of Meals on Wheels. “Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”
“Life is bigger than projects. It’s about making an impact on people’s lives,” said Sam Dawson, P.E., Chief Executive Officer. “Charitable giving and support are fundamental to our mission and purpose.
We host annual month-long employee fundraising activities in August, and every year it is incredibly inspiring to see the final fundraising tallies. We are blessed to have such generous employees and leadership. We all truly care about improving lives in our communities.”
“Your gift couldn’t have come at a better time,” said Derrick Chubbs, President and CEO of Central Texas Food Bank. “For hardworking families, the pandemic has made it very hard to make ends meet without some help. Your support provides that helping hand.”
