2022 Impact Report

The driving force
behind DGW

Since day one, our priority at Doing Good Works has been supporting those impacted by the foster care system. Doing Good Works operates as two distinct but complementary divisions: DGW Branded and Foster Greatness.

Both of these divisions are committed to advancing our shared goal of providing essential resources, support, and opportunities to individuals impacted by the foster care system. We are proud of the progress we have made thus far, and we are excited to continue working towards a brighter future for our communities.

Life Changing Impact
Last year, our financial investments had a significant impact on 752 individuals. We provided individual donations to support and former foster youth as well as those affected by the Florida hurricane. Additionally, we partnered with Trellis, a local non-profit supporting the homeless population, to provide jobs. We recognize the significance of offering financial aid to those in need, and we continue to be dedicated to making a positive impact in our communities.

Our commitment to company culture

Over 60% of our workforce has experienced foster care. We don't just talk about the change we want to see; we lead the movement by following our beliefs. Our nurturing work environment welcomes those from foster care to become integral members of our team. We're proud that two-thirds of our employees have flourished at Doing Good Works after coming from the foster system.

In 2015, we acknowledged the significant challenges facing individuals aging out of the system, motivating us to leverage business to create a pathway for positive change in our community. After almost a decade, we're grateful to have empowered over 1,000 individuals with the skills and mindset needed for future growth. The DGW team expresses gratitude for your support in our mission to make a positive impact. Thank you for being a part of Doing Good Works!
