Our Associates Are Thankful to Give Back to Their Community

by McEnearney on November 15, 2018

November 15th marked National Philanthropy Day, a yearly observance begun by the Association of Fundraising Professionals and made official by a presidential proclamation in 1986. The Association has regional and local chapters across the country and celebrates those who give back to their community with their donated time, in-kind and volunteering support.

We think this deserves wider recognition, especially at a time of year where thanks are plentiful. Year-round, McEnearney Associates proudly give back to the local communities in which they live and work. Below are a few of the reasons we are thankful for all of the contributions from our Associates to communities throughout the Greater Washington, D.C. region. #WeAreMcEnearney

“I am on the Board and head of fundraising for Homestretch. Homestretch empowers homeless families with children to attain self-sufficiency, permanent housing, and confidence. I participate because watching mothers work so incredibly hard to change the trajectory of their lives and their kid’s lives makes my life better. Nothing makes me happier than seeing them succeed and knowing that I played a part.”

Arc nv-logo-full 60px h

“I’ve been fundraising and supporting the Arc of Northern Virginia for many years. The Arc provides so much for families and individuals with specials needs – my family…from 2004-2014. They advocate for, train, support and employ individuals with special needs in the Northern Virginia area. For our family, they helped us through the EDCD Waiver process, which took about 6 months and multiple college degrees to comprehend. My band, Quarter Mexican, has played fundraisers for them since 2014 and always enjoy those shows!”

“We at #UrbanCastle share a passion for giving back to the communities in which we live and work. Brett is currently among leadership of the Uptown Main Street initiative focused on encouraging and sustaining local businesses along Upper 14th Street and Kennedy Street in NW Washington, DC. Emily volunteers with Space of Her Own in the City of Alexandria, striving to empower vulnerable girls in the community through arts, carpentry and creative one-to-one mentoring. We both find that involvement in our communities helps us realize the qualities we would like to reflect in our business.”

“I thoroughly enjoy my volunteer work with the Lift Me Up therapeutic horseback riding program in Great Falls. I assist children and adults in gaining physical and mental strength through horseback riding. I groom and saddle horses for the riders and then assist them during their lessons. What a wonderful way to spend a day!”
Lisa Smith

“As an active member of my local community, I have always been passionate about reinvesting in the lives of others who might otherwise not have a way up or out. I am grateful that, were it not for a few key influences—including teachers and other community members—I would not be where I am today. That is why I also run a small foundation whose objective is to equip, empower and inspire individuals to create meaningful and lasting change in their local communities. We have funded educational scholarships; purchased school supplies and clothing for young DCPS students; funded holiday food programs for students and their families in Columbia Heights, Rockville, and Gaithersburg; and much more. I look forward to continuing to grow my business in 2019 with a focus on giving purposefully so that others may achieve their potential.”

“Old Town Alexandria is a marvelous place to live and work. I’m fortunate and love selling all the special real estate in Old Town. It is my great pleasure to support Historic Alexandria Foundation, ACT, The Campagna Center, and The Athenaeum. When we business people give generously, it makes the entire fabric of our wonderful community that much stronger. There is rich history here in Old Town and it has been preserved in large part by The Historic Alexandria Foundation for 60+ years.”

“I enjoy being out in the community and serving those in need simply because it makes me feel good. I often donate monetarily to various organizations, but offering my time feels like a greater sacrifice because I have so much on my plate. I love working with Martha’s Table, I try to go out with them at least twice a month and serve sandwiches to the homeless in DC. Spending a few hours is overwhelming gratifying—it gives me time to step away, interact with others and directly impact the District’s residents.”
