SGI’s CSR commitment is an extension of who we are as individuals, and how we work within projects. Many of us come from military and governmental agencies whose missions involve physical risk, and the bonds that formed in those experiences remain with us today. We care about the people we work with in the business community we operate within, and in the physical communities we live in. Our CSR is not window-dressing. It’s an action-focused commitment to give something back on a sustainable basis.
We are a long-term corporate sponsor of the Meredith Thompson DEA Survivors Fund, an organization that provides financial assistance to families of DEA personnel killed in the line of duty. We serve on the Board of the Community Anti-Drug Coalition, an organization whose mission is to build drug-free communities across America.
SGI helps “Make Strides Against Breast Cancer”, an event in Washington DC that celebrate survivors and raises awareness and money to help the American Cancer Society save lives. The money is used to fund innovative research, provide free information and support, and to help people reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it’s most treatable.
SGI Global is a proud corporate sponsor of the 27th Annual Diplomatic Security Foundation (DSF) Charity Golf Outing. The funds from this event are used to provide grants to members of the world wide DS “family” during times of hardship or crisis. In 2016, DSF gave over $89,000 in grants and scholarships to those in need. SGI is pleased to, in some small way, help these families.
SGI Global is also a proud corporate sponsor of the International Security Foundation (ISF). The ISF was established in 2011 to provide private sector support to the global mission of the Overseas Security Advisory Council of the United State Department of State, Bureau of Diplomatic Security. Through educational programs and public – private security information exchange initiatives, the ISF helps American businesses, faith-based organizations, institutions of higher learning, charities and other non–governmental organizations deal with terrorism, civil disorder, crime and natural disasters affecting their personnel and operations worldwide. The ISF is Vital to the Security of American Organizations Abroad, and SGI is honored to be a sponsor.
