Giving Back

All DOZ personnel realize the importance of giving back to the community.  To facilitate this outreach, DOZ employees formed the DOZ Charitable Foundation.

The mission of the DOZ Charitable Foundation is to provide monetary and human resources support to those without the means to adequately provide for themselves, whether directly or in cooperation with entities sharing similar purposes.

Board Members meet each month to determine the focus of support based on input from employees.  The DOZ Charitable Foundation organizes volunteers to donate time to over 20 service projects annually, and raises and determines beneficiaries of funds received through employee donations, SCRIP fundraising efforts, and other gifts.

A sample of the organizations supported is as follows:

Alzheimer Association through Quash
