Support the Dulles Airport Community by giving back 100% of funds raised by the Committee for Dulles Community Outreach (CFDCO) in the form of scholarships to graduating high school seniors who work/volunteer or have a parent/guardian who work/volunteer within Dulles Airport's perimeter.

The Committee for Dulles (CFD) in partnership with the Washington Airports Task Force formed the CFDCO in 2012. The CFDCO, the charitable arm of CFD, was established to honor the legacy of David A. Edwards. Mr. Edwards was a past CFD president who was deeply committed to supporting the Dulles Airport community.
How We Raise Funds:
The volunteer-run 501 (c)(3) committee raises funds by hosting a number of events throughout the year to including raffles, raffles, silent auctions, the Dulles 5K/10K on the Runway, the CFD Annual Golf Tournament, and contributions from supporting individuals, organizations, and corporations.
To date, the Committee has awarded:
222 scholarships totaling $375,000 to graduating high school seniors who work/volunteer or have parents who works/volunteers within the Dulles Airport’s perimeter.
$59,000 in grants to local organizations that support the airport and its passengers, including travelers aid operations, the interfaith chapel, and a local women’s shelter.
