Transforming Our

Communities

Companies have a choice—to merely reside in the communities where they operate, or to act as citizens of those communities. DaVita chooses the latter, because we are a Village, not just a company. And we are wholeheartedly invested in Gandhi's idea that "You must be the change you wish to see in the world." We want to make a difference. One of the ways we do that is by giving back to our communities, both locally and internationally. We encourage our teammates to partake in service projects, and we help fund efforts that our teammates lead to benefit their communities and the environment. Being the change you want to see feels good, and inspires others to do good, too.

Community Service

For us, giving back to the communities in which we operate involves more than writing a check. In 2013, DaVita had a record-breaking year for volunteerism, with volunteers dedicating more than 15,900 hours to help complete 369 community service events around the country through Village Service Days.

Home-State Engagement

Home-State Engagement

In the spirit of being good citizens and neighbors, DaVita has partnered with dozens of organizations to launch community-enrichment initiatives in our home state of Colorado. After devastating floods hit Colorado in 2013, more than 50 DaVita teammates and Village Service Partners flew out from across the country to help with relief efforts. DaVita partnered with All Hands Volunteers, a national organization that helps organize volunteer relief efforts in areas of crisis, to clean up a local pumpkin farm in Northern Colorado. Teammates and business partners—some of whom are competitors—worked side by side to dig out and haul off equipment to help restore the farm to its normal functions.
