Proudly Serving Our Country and Our Communities
We care deeply for our country and for the communities in which we live. At Pragmatics, we maintain a vibrant culture of generosity, responsibility and social awareness. For more than three decades, Pragmatics has generously supported various natural disaster relief efforts and families of the 9/11 attacks on the United States. In addition, Pragmatics has sponsored numerous events for wounded veterans.
Pragmatics Founder and CEO Dr. Long Nguyen and his wife made a $5 million donation to George Mason University. The donation established the Long and Kimmy Nguyen Engineering Building, a world-class facility for teaching and research at the university’s Fairfax campus. The Nguyens made the donation to underscore their strong commitment to the university, education, and northern Virginia, where their family resides.
The Nguyen building houses the Autonomous Robotics Laboratory and the Center of Excellence in Command, Control, Communications, Computing and Intelligence (C4I).
In February 2017, Ms. Kimmy Duong, Vice Chair/Chief Financial Officer of Pragmatics, Inc., and President of The Kimmy Foundation pledged $2 million to fund scholarships at the University of Maryland to support engineering and business students.
PragmaticSERVES: Supporting Community-Based Charity
In 2008, we established PragmaticSERVES (Supports, Encourages, Responds, Values, Energizes, and Strengthens) to give back to the communities where our employees live and work. Its mission is to encourage interaction among employees by working with charitable and nonprofit organizations that provide support on a community level.
Each year PragmaticSERVES sponsors a food drive to benefit Food for Others, a local nonprofit food bank and food rescue operation. Each year our employees generously donate a plethora of canned foods, rice, various sauces, cereal, beans, and other nonperishable items to contribute to the communities in which we work.
Continuing our commitment to serving those who serve, Pragmatics is a sponsor for Code of Support’s annual wine tasting and auction fund raiser, Toast To Our Troops.
Pragmatics partners with and donates to the American Red Cross to help those affected by various natural disasters. Pragmatics’ CEO Dr. Long Nguyen graciously matches employee donations dollar-for-dollar.
Pragmatics annually supports Cornerstones and the Hunter Mill District Winter Coat Closet to collect new and gently used winter coats and jackets, as well as new hats, gloves, and scarves to benefit the Reston community.
We partner with the Salvation Army to sponsor the Angel Tree Program.
