Community Outreach

We are committed to the three “P”s: people, planet, and profit

Our relationship with our community has always been the foundation of our success.  At Davis & Hodgdon we are committed to using our resources and expertise to give back and help improve the community in which we work and live.

Specifically, we want to do what we can to contribute to a vibrant and sustainable local economy.

Cause Areas

To achieve this we invest and partner with organizations that support our cause areas:

  • Financial Literacy
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Vermont’s Green Economy

Corporate Responsibility

These cause areas guide and focus our corporate responsibility strategy. We make a difference through various venues including:

  • Signature Partnership
  • Charitable Giving
  • Employee Volunteer Program

Community Partners

In an effort to strengthen community relations, we are also proud contributors and supporters to several Vermont-based organizations.  Our staff provides a high level of service to local groups including:

  • Generator Makerspace
  • Mercy Connections
  • Women Business Owners Network (WBON)
  • Lyric Theatre
  • Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility
  • Vermont Economic Progress Council (VEPC)
  • Age Well

Community Involvement

Our civic-minded staff are actively involved with many nonprofits throughout their communities.

“We appreciate that Davis & Hodgdon makes their staff’s volunteerism possible with investments in company time, expertise, and infrastructure. Allowing an employee time for our monthly board meetings and the use of accounting software will not bring notoriety, but it does not go unnoticed. We are truly grateful for your contribution to our work.”

– Greg Hanson, President, Rebuilding Together, Greater Burlington
