Six local non-profits were granted the gift of donations from Venturi. Based in Huntsville, Alabama, Venturi is no stranger to giving back to their community. Venturi has donated to six Huntsville-based non-profits through their staff-funded Brighter Day Employee Fund. Since its program began in 2007, they have donated over $1.1 million! Derek Johns, Director of Recruiting and Resource Management, stated, “Brighter Day is certainly Venturi’s legacy, and we are so glad Chenega has allowed us to continue this tradition of giving back to the communities where Venturi employees live and work.” This year, in the second quarter of 2023, Venturi presented grants to the following non-profit organizations:
