2011 Corporate Philanthropy
President & CEO
CACI International Inc.
The nearly 14,000 people at CACI share a common goal of supporting men and women in our Armed Forces. The help CACI provides for veterans is part of Project Philanthropy, a company-wide program to provide opportunities to support worthy initiatives.
For cause (Comfort for America’s Uniformed Services), an organization that brings comfort and recreation into the lives of wounded warfighters, we were there at its inception with financial support, expertise, and many volunteer hours. For hundreds of hospitalized veterans separated from family, cause helps lift spirits with organized activities and gift packs.
CACI is a primary sponsor of the USO lounge at the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport that serves as a “touch of home” for military travelers. Company volunteers also helped renovate two apartments for the USO emergency housing Program. These dwellings serve as temporary housing for troops and their families who are experiencing medical emergencies or have loved ones at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
Over four days and 150 hours, numerous volunteers cleaned, painted, and worked on the apartments as if they were their own homes. Groups of CACI volunteers also regularly gather to pack USO gift bags destined for troops overseas. The crews put together thousands of care packages filled with snacks, lip balm, tissues, razors, calling cards, and messages of support.
CACI does more than support front-line troops. Our funding helps the Special Operations Warrior Foundation provide free college scholarship grants, financial aid, and educational counseling to the surviving children of personnel killed in training accidents or operational missions.
CACI provided dedicated volunteer support and was the primary sponsor of the annual Project healing Waters Fly Fishing 2-Fly Tournament, which raises money and helps disabled service personnel readjust to daily life. Learning the fine motor skills required in fly fishing is effective in helping these veterans regain use of their bodies.
CACI’s support for the military is also demonstrated by our Deploying Talent – Creating Careers program, which helps qualified disabled veterans transition into meaningful careers. The program disregards physical limitations and hires people based on mental agility. It is CACI’s way of giving back to the people who serve our country and growing our business with the best talent available.
