Taking Care of Our Communities
The Foundation’s annual Golf Classic has raised over $5.5 million for Breast Cancer Research since its inception in 2005. These funds have enabled local hospitals and other cancer-focused organizations in our community to continue ongoing research and provide support services—all dedicated to putting an end to breast cancer.
In 2018 D.C. United and EagleBank establish a partnership with shared goals. Of great long-term importance to the life of the community is the partnership’s strengthening of D.C. United’s multicultural and youth outreach programs. One of the best known is DC SCORES, a local nonprofit that organizes teams for kids in need, giving them the confidence and skills to succeed—on the field and as they grow into adults. EagleBank has been an annual sponsor of the Fall Frenzy, the charity’s annual elementary-school soccer tournament and community festival.
On May 7, 2015, EagleBank entered into a long-term relationship with George Mason University. It is broad-based and multi-faceted. EagleBank has been providing scholarships to students, hiring graduates and alumni, sponsoring internships, hosting speaker series, and more.
And as part of the agreement, on July 1, 2015 the Patriot Center was renamed the EagleBank Arena. Home to Mason basketball games, high school graduations, concerts and events, the EagleBank Arena has over half a million visitors a year.
This alliance is just further evidence of our strong support for Northern Virginia and for the community generally. At EagleBank, we never forget that community is the first word in community bank.
