Due Diligence for the James River
Dominion Due Diligence pledges $25,000 to support James River Association
Over their fifteen-year partnership with James River Association (JRA), Dominion Due Diligence Group (D3G) has contributed more than $135,000 to their work for the James River. This support has had a tremendous impact on JRA and the programs that the organization offers to protect the James and connect people to it. Over the span of this partnership, the health of the James has improved: Atlantic sturgeon have returned to the river where they were once believed to be extinct and bald eagle populations are healthier than ever. D3G’s support over the past decade has also allowed for JRA to grow its education programs- which grew from connecting 3,000 kids to the river in 2015 to over 13,000 in 2020.
“I’m proud of the partnership that we have forged with Dominion Due Diligence Group, and applaud their deep commitment to bettering the communities in which they work. Our collaborations with Rob and his team have allowed us to vastly expand our work for the James – and we are so grateful to have them in our corner”, Bill Street, JRA CEO
Dominion Due Diligence Group believes in the importance of social responsibility and empowering employees to cultivate positive change within their workspace, communities, and neighborhoods. Our community engagement mission is guided by our belief in equitable housing and promoting a healthy quality of life in the communities we serve. Volunteerism is employee-driven at D3G; with varied resources for civic engagement, staff can choose how contributions of time and money are used toward causes they value. These opportunities include a gift matching program, team-building volunteer events, and philanthropy. In partnership with the non-profit sector, D3G seeks relationships with community-minded organizations like the James River Association, to expand our reach, eliminate barriers, and further our impact together.
When I started D3G 27 years ago, our sole focus was on environmental reporting to protect and preserve the earth we all share. Running from tributaries in the Allegheny Mountains to the Chesapeake Bay’s eastern shore, the James River has been a precious resource to our state. I’ve enjoyed supporting JRA, and I am proud to know that our contributions, as well as our work, have helped make a positive impact here in the River City. – Rob Hazelton
