This passion extends beyond writing checks; it’s about giving our time and talents to create real and meaningful change. Whether we are supporting the interests of our clients, spending a week of summer vacation helping Boy Scouts earn merit badges, or rolling up our sleeves to assist a worthy cause, we find that our greatest satisfaction is in creating lasting impacts through giving back.
For nearly a decade, Geoff Stricker (a former Chairman of the Board of Directors) has worked with DC Central Kitchen, a local DC non-profit that uses career training, job creation, and sustainable business practices to strengthen local food systems and reduce disparities in health and economic opportunity. Edgemoor staff members, past and present, have volunteered hundreds of hours of time partnering with DC Central Kitchen to transform wasted food into balanced meals for our community.
The Hilltop Child Development Center sits directly in the middle of the new construction of the Central District. As a way to involve the kids and teach them about the construction happening in their backyard, the project team, led by Edgemoor, spent the day decorating personalized yellow hardhats and, after putting on their new safety gear, the children were taken outside to learn about the different types
of construction equipment they see every day. As a fun bonus, the kids were able to touch and even sit in some of the equipment! As a special “thank you,” from the Project Team, all the children were given a copy of the book “Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site.” After the event, one of the parents noted that now many of the kids wave and say goodnight to the construction equipment at the end of the day, just like in the book.
As a firm, we are deeply invested and committed to not only our clients but also the communities in which they work and live. During the Sandler Neurosciences project, several members of the Edgemoor Project Team gave back to the community by participating in a community service event benefiting the San Francisco Food Bank.
Through the leadership of Jeff Fullerton, the project team held or participated in more than 120 community meetings, hosted countless discussions with various city departments, the Port of Long Beach, and area residents, and sought ways to improve upon the original proposal and bring the best value for the City of Long Beach and its citizens.
