Business Connections

Business Conenctions is a fee-for-service program that offers customized employee engagement opportunities at sites throughout Alexandria and sometimes outside the City. Our comprehensive project management ensures a high impact day of service that meets your employees’ expectations and furthers your philanthropic goals. We serve as your wedding planner for your wedding and take care of all logistics. You just need to show up. With Business Connections projects, Volunteer Alexandria provides:

  • Project Coordination - Start to Finish

Our supporters embody the strong commitment to community that resonates throughout the City of Alexandria. Engagement with Volunteer Alexandria identifies your company as a leader - seeking to make meaningful contributions to the well-being of our region. It also offers a proven return on investment: employee volunteering improves retention and supports recruitment, provides valuable leadership and professional development opportunities, and strengthens talents. Positive community visibility provides access to new markets and customers.  

We provide a variety of on-site projects that are able to accommodate anywhere from 5-100 people and support the community by providing hand-made products. Check out our blog on Visit Alexandria.
