Widelity

Philanthropy

Widelity believes strongly in supporting people and causes that improve our community, our understanding, and our daily lives.  Companies, like individuals, are called to contribute their time and resources to making our world a better place, to live, work, and thrive together.  That’s why we’re seeking to build charitable giving relationships to advance important initiatives, both in our local community, and beyond.

What we support

The Capital Area Food Bank is the largest organization in the Washington metro area working to solve hunger and its companion problems: chronic undernutrition, heart disease, and obesity. By partnering with over 450 community organizations in DC, MD, and VA, as well as delivering food directly into hard to reach areas, the CAFB is helping nearly half a million people each year get access to good, healthy food. That’s 10% of our region’s mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, sisters, brothers, and grandparents.

What used to be “Northern Virginia’s best-kept secret” is now one of the country’s largest and most comprehensive schools of engineering. The George Mason University Volgenau School of Engineering is adding new programs, attracting more top faculty, and expanding vital research. Students can concentrate in six socially relevant themes of their choice, including bioengineering, robotics, sustainable infrastructure, health care technologies, global outreach, and cyber security—critical to defending our networks and one of the most sought-after degrees. GMU’s close relationships with a number of corporate partners also gives students opportunities to apply their classroom learning to real-world situations to help make the world safer, cleaner, and healthier.

Hypernova 1

Hypernova Solar was founded in 2018 by a group of George Mason students who were passionate about making a change in the world.  In early 2019, the team officially began to design and construct their first vehicle, with the hopes to compete in the World Solar Challenge in 2020.  The goal at Hypernova Solar is to make a real impact on the world around us, with vehicles that are innovative, practical, and realistic – exactly what is needed in the modern world.
