Giving Back in 2021

Giving Back in 2021
At CDM Smith, we strive to be an integral part of the communities we serve, making a positive impact through our work, building rela­tion­ships and supporting one another. Our firm and employees give back to nonprofit orga­ni­za­tions and causes that we care about on a regular basis. In 2021, we continued to make an impact through corporate donations and numerous volun­teer­ing efforts, fundraisers and awareness events around the world, and had some fun while we were at it! Here’s some of the ways we contributed...

CDM Smith Cares

CDM Smith Cares is an employee-led volunteer program focused on outreach activities that build community and improve quality of life through local efforts. Every year, we empower our employees to rally around causes that align with our values, including healthy living initiatives, envi­ron­men­tal stewardship, STEM outreach and more. Our employees impressed us this year with their creative and meaningful initiatives!

Our Wellness Program

Through our wellness incentive, partic­i­pat­ing CDM Smith employees, as well as their spouses and partners, track healthy behaviors and are rewarded points for their accom­plish­ments.

Water For People Workplace Giving Campaign

CDM Smith has donated more than $2.2 million to Water For People since beginning our annual giving campaign in 2005. Water For People’s mission, “to promote the development of high-quality drinking water and sanitation services, accessible to all,” closely resembles our own and deeply resonates with our employees. In 2021, CDM Smith helped raise more than $114,000, including $70,000+ in payroll contri­bu­tions from our employees, $9,000+ in individual and office donations, and $35,000 in corporate spon­sor­ships. We look forward to continuing our support!

We believe that our firm can have the most positive impact on the world when our employees are provided the tools and motivation to live healthier, better lives and support charities that share our same passion and outlook. 2021 was another year focused on the health of our communities and helping one another. Giving back continues to sustain our passionate workforce and help us forge stronger ties with the people we serve.
