Clark Enterprises Named DC Area's Top Corporate Philanthropist
BETHESDA, Md. – The Washington Business Journal named real estate developer Clark Enterprises, the parent company of Clark Construction Group, Clark Builders Group, and Clark Realty Capital, the area's top corporate philanthropist. Last year, the Clark family of companies donated more than $12 million to charities and non-profit organizations in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. In total, Clark donated more than $14 million across the country with company employees donating nearly 12,000 volunteer and pro bono hours.
Giving back to the community in dollar and deed has long been a part of Clark's corporate culture. The company's giving is focused on six primary areas: community, education, health, military, youth, and arts. This dedication to philanthropy has led to longstanding relationships with several local organizations, including the Aleethia Foundation, Bread for the City, Children's Inn at NIH, DC Central Kitchen, Samaritan Inn, So Others Might Eat, and the Wounded Warrior Project,
Clark's philanthropic efforts continue in 2012. Earlier this year, Clark Construction Group and the Clark Charitable Foundation teamed up to donate $500,000 to Boulder Crest Retreat, a 37-acre Loudoun County facility that will offer a rural recovery setting for wounded warriors and their families. In April, dozens of company employees volunteered as part of Rebuilding Together's National Rebuilding Day on company-sponsored sites in Washington, D.C., as well as in California and Washington state.
Clark Enterprises is consistently ranked as one of the top corporate philanthropists in the Washington, D.C. area.
