Making Giving a Reality
At Vision, sharing our good fortune is a fundamental value of our people. Working with and within our communities, we share our time, talents and treasure to help our neighbors. We recognize our obligation to give back, and do so willingly and with enthusiasm.
Each year, Vision selects a charity to support through corporate donations, the generosity of our people, our partners, and our customers and through events like our Technology Design-Build Showcase & Golf Tournament, our Liberty Trek, our Holiday Party Silent Auction, American Heart Association Walk, and our Bull & Oyster Roast.

2022 National Charity
K9s For Warriors
Determined to end veteran suicide, K9s For Warriors provides highly-trained Service Dogs to military veterans suffering from PTSD, traumatic brain injury and/or military sexual trauma. With the majority of dogs coming from high-kill rescue shelters, this innovative program allows the K9/Warrior team to build an unwavering bond that facilitates their collective healing and recovery.
This treatment method is backed by scientific research (from Purdue University’s OHAIRE Lab) demonstrating Service Dogs’ ability to help mitigate their veteran’s symptoms of PTSD while simultaneously restoring their confidence and independence. Founded in 2011 as a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization, K9s For Warriors remains committed to bringing widespread awareness to veterans’ mental health and contributing to policy-level reform.
