LGS Innovations today announced its Filene Circle level contribution to the Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts, as well as its other charitable contributions in 2013. LGS contributed to a variety of groups including science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education, injured veterans and communities local to LGS’ six offices across the U.S.
Through its partnership with Wolf Trap, LGS Innovations is supporting diverse, year-round performances and innovative education programs, which positively impact more than 600,000 people each year. Wolf Trap’s Institute for Early Learning Through the Arts includes its innovative Early STEM/Arts initiative, which uses the arts to enhance STEM skills for young learners.
“The Foundation relies on the generosity of philanthropic partners to advance our mission, and we are grateful to LGS Innovations for their tremendous support,” said Arvind Manocha, president and CEO, Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts.
Across the country, LGS employees donated their time, skills and resources to organize multiple philanthropic events in 2013 with proceeds going to charity. Beneficiaries included a New York special needs school, Homes for Our Troops, Operation Support Our Troops, Wheaton Homeless Shelter, Arapahoe House, Greensboro United Way and the Wounded Warrior Project.
“LGS puts a high priority on nurturing an innovative, entrepreneurial approach to solving networking and communications challenges, and we believe in fostering this approach both on an employee level and through early childhood education,” said Kevin Kelly, CEO of LGS Innovations. “The communities in which we work are the bedrock of our success as a company. I am honored to be leading such a group of dedicated individuals who devote their time and resources to empower the local and national organizations that serve the greater good.”
