At Deltek, we proudly support organizations that assist the next generation of technology leaders and that foster health and well-being around the world.
Here is a look at some of the organizations helped by our corporate philanthropy program, ultimately reflecting #TeamDeltek’s deep commitment to our employees, our customers and our global community.
PaintFest Benefitting the Foundation for Hospital Art
In 1984, The Foundation for Hospital Art (FFHA) was formed from the idea that art can help healing, and that anyone with a brush can help create. For over 30 years since then, FFHA has been placing murals in hospitals and medical facilities across the globe. At Deltek Insight 2019 attendees will have the opportunity to participate in PaintFest, by bringing comfort and hope to hospital patients, through a hands-on painting (color by number) art activity. Look for updates on Facebook and Twitter on how these works of art by our #DeltekProjectNation bring joy to those who need it most.
Operation Gratitude: On a Mission to Thank Every American That Serves
Operation Gratitude sends 300,000+ care packages a year to deployed troops, veterans, recruit graduates, first responders, and wounded heroes and their caregivers for their service to our country. Letters and colorful drawings often count as the more cherished items for deployed service members, which is why Operation Gratitude strives to include as many as they can in each package they send. This year, #TeamDeltek will have the opportunity to say thank you, through an Operation Gratitude letter-writing campaign, to show our appreciation for all who have served.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
Our company is proud to continue our ongoing support of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), the world's largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education and patient services.
Since 1949, LLS has been on the forefront of blood cancer advances such as chemotherapies and stem cell transplantation leading the way to the targeted therapies and immunotherapies that are saving thousands of lives today.
Deltek employees are committed to LLS’s efforts to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma — and to improve the quality of life for patients and their families. Together, we hope to make “someday” today and see a cure for blood cancers. Follow LLS on Facebook and Twitter, and join #TeamDeltek in the fight to end blood cancers!
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night Walk
In 2019, Team Deltek will once again participate in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Light the Night Walk, continuing our support for this organization's important work. Deltek employees will join Light the Night Walks throughout the U.S. and Canada to raise funds and awareness for LLS.
Last year, Team Deltek (pictured at left in Reston, Virginia) raised more than $55,000 in support of LLS! Deltek officially participated in Light the Night Walks in Reston, Virginia; Dallas, Texas; Medford, Massachusetts; Seattle, Washington; Portland, Oregon; and Ottawa, Canada. Over 200 employees, along with their friends & family, fundraised and walked in the various events across North America.
We are proud that our employees' efforts will ultimately help LLS assist blood cancer patients and their families, support scientists, and advocate for increased government funding. The fight is constant, but together we can make a difference.
#TeamDeltek is excited to bring awareness to LLS but we can't do it alone. Anyone can participate and even the smallest donation can help make a difference. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for future LLS and Light the Night updates.
The U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program
Deltek is proud to support the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program, which annually collects new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December and distributes those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children.
Through the Toys for Tots program, the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve plays an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources –- our children. Their toy collection and distribution campaigns unite community members in a common cause, ultimately fostering more connected communities and creating happy memories.
During our annual customer holiday party near our global headquarters, Deltek encourages guests to donate unwrapped toys in support of #ToysforTots. In 2018, customers and employees attending the party donated almost 1,000 unwrapped toys and made $1,200 in additional donations to make the holidays brighter for children in need.
Deltek is proud of our ongoing partnership with Year Up, an organization that works to close the opportunity divide by providing young adults with the skills and experience to achieve professional careers and higher education.
Through our partnership, Year Up National Capital Region (NCR) places interns at Deltek’s corporate headquarters in Herndon, Virginia, where they work across our business units, gaining valuable experience and, in turn, providing meaningful contributions to our team. Our program started with one intern in 2010; during the past eight years, we have welcomed more than 50 interns, resulting in many participants being hired to join Deltek as full time members of our team.
In 2018, Deltek received the Year Up NCR 2018 Urban Empowerment Award, reflecting our continued commitment to investing in tomorrow’s leaders today. Follow Year Up on Facebook and Twitter to join the #OpportunityMovement and support the future of tech!
65 Roses Golf Classic, Benefitting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
Across the country, 65 Roses Golf Classics are held each year to raise money and awareness for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the world's leader in efforts to cure cystic fibrosis—a progressive, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe. Held near Deltek’s global headquarters on June 10, 2019, the 65 Roses Golf Classic in Aldie, Virginia, is chaired by a Deltek employee whose youngest daughter is currently living with this disorder.
The name “65 Roses” dates to 1965, when an observant four-year-old pronounced cystic fibrosis as "65 Roses." Today, the name “65 Roses” is often used by young children with cystic fibrosis for their disease.
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation works to cure #cysticfibrosis and help those with the disease by funding research and development, promoting individualized treatment and ensuring access to high-quality, specialized care. Deltek’s support of the 65 Roses Golf Classic in Aldie, Virginia, reflects our commitment to helping those living with the disease achieve a better quality of life. Join #TeamDeltek as we tee up hope, one hole at a time, to help make "CF" stand for "Cure Found!"
