RKG Gives Back

Since its founding in  2003, RKG and its people have made a commitment to giving back to the communities in which we live, work, and play.  Our employees participate in quarterly volunteer days, internal fund-raising competitions, a company-matched donation program, as well as many individual efforts throughout the year. For consideration, please contact givingback@rimmkaufman.com.

RKG Giving Back Events:

  • CASPCA Dog Food Drive – RKG had a goal of raising 350 cans of dog food for the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA. RKG obliterated the goal with a whopping 1,149 cans!

  • Donors Choose Book Project – Each day, these children receive a book to read during guided reading and take home. Because of high numbers of children, this class was forced to make copies for many of the children. By having RKG donate these books, each child will be guaranteed a “real” book to read each and every day! This will help them gain fluency and the self-satisfaction that they have read a book on their own.

  • Camp Holiday Trails – Camp Holiday Trails is a camp for children with special needs. RKG team members volunteer at the camp to help make sure that campers have a fun, safe environment in which to spend their Summer days.
  • Habitat for Humanity – Habitat for Humanity believes that every man, woman and child should have a decent, safe and affordable place to live. RKG uses volunteer days to help build houses for Habitat partner families.

  • Blue Ridge Food Bank Food Drive – each year, the teams at RKG participate in a competitive Food Drive.  While the internal competition is fun (and can be heated), the end result is what it’s all about: helping to feed the hungry in our community
  • Angel Tree – RKG’s Giving Back Fund sponsors several individuals during the holiday season through the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program
  • Toy Lift – There is nothing like seeing the excitement of a child opening a Christmas gift.  The Toy Lift is a Charlottesville event which aims to make sure that each child will have that excitement each holiday season.  RKG is proud to have this event as one of our volunteer days for our employees.
