WILMINGTON, Del.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CSC, a world leader in business, legal, tax, and domain name security, today announced a donation of $100,000 to the Delaware COVID-19 Strategic Response Fund. CSC believes in giving back to the communities where its people live and work, and knows how important this fund is to addressing the urgent need of community non-profits that are working to serve people disproportionately suffering from the coronavirus pandemic.
The Delaware Community Foundation (DCF), collaborating with Philanthropy Delaware and the Delaware Alliance for Nonprofit Advancement, is managing this fund.
“As the pandemic continues, the needs are growing and evolving,” said DCF President and CEO Stuart Comstock-Gay, who chairs the fund’s decision-making council. “We are calling on the community to help local nonprofit organizations get food, shelter, medical care, and other essential services directly to the people who need it most. We also must support our workforce, arts community, and other sectors to restore our quality of life post-COVID-19.”
The Delaware COVID-19 Strategic Response Fund is giving out up to $350,000 in each weekly round. In the first round, $3.9M was requested from all 95 applicants combined, while the second round of 119 applicants requested $4.5M. Other local funders have contributed more than $2.26M, and CSC is happy to be one of the Delaware businesses able to help.
“CSC operates under a set of values to ensure we leave our clients and communities better off tomorrow than they are today, and this donation reinforces our commitment to Delaware,” says CSC President and CEO Rod Ward. “We’re committed to helping our neighbors prosper, making a better Delaware for everyone. That’s why we’ve donated $200,000 to REACH Riverside in the last six months, and why we’re contributing now to the Delaware COVID-19 Strategic Response Fund.”
CSC has enjoyed tremendous growth since its founding in Wilmington in 1899, and continues to deepen its roots in the area. In 2016, CSC acquired the three-story office building at 2801 Centerville Road and completed renovation in January 2020. In 2017, CSC built its new state of the art, 148,000-square-foot facility that sits on nearly 40 acres in Wilmington at the corner of Lancaster Pike and Centerville Road. In early 2020, CSC purchased the Pennsylvania Railroad building at 112 S. French Street and is currently renovating the space to become CSC Station, an inspirational and energetic co-working space in downtown Wilmington.
CSC has supported more than 150 nonprofit organizations directly and also continues to match employee donations. To learn more about other COVID-19 resources CSC is providing, visit cscglobal.com/cscglobal/home/covid-19/.
