Community Impact

Our favorite job is giving back to the communities we serve.

We are Community Champions who are proud to give back to Columbus and the other communities we call home. The Dawson Community Champions Foundation supports educational and philanthropic causes benefiting underserved youth and families in Central Ohio.

Meet our signature charity partner, Cristo Rey Columbus High School

Since 2013, Dawson has been a founding partner of Cristo Rey Columbus High School, offering real-life work experience to underserved youth and paying a portion of those students’ tuition.

A charitable workforce


Volunteer Time Off encourages Dawson’s employees to get involved with charities they’re passionate about. Dawson Colleagues have fed the homeless, mentored with Big Brothers Big Sisters, and made blankets for kids at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, just to name a few.


Throughout the year, the Dawson wellness committee supports participation in charity races for a variety of causes. Riders for Team Dawson in Pelotonia have raised thousands of dollars for cancer research at The James Cancer Hospital at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.

Through volunteerism, in-kind and monetary donations, and sponsorships, we've proudly supported these charities and many others.


Community Workforce Programs

Inspired by the philanthropic initiatives and dedication to volunteerism by our Colleagues, we've designed Community Workforce Programs in conjunction with Central Ohio schools to reach high school and college students, their parents, and community job seekers.

We're honored to be recognized for our commitment to community.
