DaVita Gives $1.2 Million To Nonprofits Across The US

Stocks in this article: DVA

DaVita, the kidney care division of DaVita HealthCare Partners Inc. (NYSE: DVA) and a leading provider of kidney care services, announced that its teammates donated $1.2 million to charities in more than 1,100 communities across the United States as part of the “DaVita Way of Giving.”

For the third year in a row, DaVita teammates in centers across the U.S. democratically chose local charities to support as part of the DaVita® Way of Giving, the company’s locally focused charitable giving initiative that helps 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations grow and thrive. Charities included relief organizations, animal shelters, food banks, children’s organizations, crisis centers, health clinics and many more.

“At DaVita, we believe taking care of one another – both at our dialysis centers and in the greater community – is vital to our growth and well-being as a company,” said Steve Priest, DaVita’s chief wisdom officer. “As a community first, and a company second, we strive to make a difference in the welfare of the communities where we live and work.”

As a part of the DaVita Way of Giving, DaVita centers across the nation also contributed $25,000 to Typhoon Haiyan relief efforts through the American Red Cross. The Red Cross continues to distribute much-needed supplies and support, while continually assessing the needs of those most affected.

In addition to monetary donations, many teammates also volunteered their time to help these charities through community service projects – known internally as Village Service Days. Projects included holiday parties for children and food drives, among others.

DaVita is committed to improving the quality of life for those diagnosed with chronic kidney disease and is dedicated to spreading ripples of citizen leadership through its Trilogy of Care – Caring for Our Patients, Caring for Each Other and Caring for Our World.
