The CFDCO is the charitable arm of the Committee for Dulles. It was formed in 2012 to honor the legacy of Dave Edwards, a CFD past president who was deeply committed to supporting the Dulles Airport Community.
The volunteer-run 501 (c)(3) committee raises funds throughout the year through a number of activities, including raffles, the Dulles Day 5k/10k run, the CFD’s golf tournament, and contributions from supporting individuals, organizations, and corporations. 100% of the donations are given back to the community, in the forms of scholarships and local grants.
The CFDCO is also a participating member in the AmazonSmile, a simple way to support the charity through purchases on Amazon’s website. 0.5% of every Amazon purchase made via smile.amazon.com is donated to your selected organization.
To date, the Committee has awarded:
186 scholarships totaling $330,500 to graduating high school seniors who work/volunteer or have parents who works/volunteers within the Dulles Airport’s perimeter.
$50,500 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.
