Our founder, A.G. Van Metre, was a lifelong resident of the greater Washington, DC area, and demonstrated a long legacy of philanthropy that focused on local charities. Today, we honor his memory by continuing this tradition of supporting these same local charities that were so important to him.

Van Metre Companies Foundation

The Van Metre Companies Foundation was formed in May of 2014. The Foundation is run by a group of employees who serve as the Board of Directors and the officers of the Foundation who have full discretion for the disbursement of funds held by the Foundation. The Van Metre Companies Foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of people in the communities where Van Metre carries on its business. The Foundation will complement and support the interests, values and vision of the Van Metre Companies and its employees. It will provide financial support to qualified educational, medical, human welfare services, and other 501(c)(3) charitable organizations.

Children's National Medical Center

In August 2013, Van Metre Companies donated funds raised at The 2 Young Foundation Annual Wiffle® Ball World Series to Children's National Medical Center. The Van Metre 5 Mile Run for Children's National Medical Center is a long-standing annual tradition, and to date has raised over $2.7 million dollars for the hospital. In 2010, Children's National Medical Center dedicated the Van Metre Companies Cardiovascular Surgery Operating Room, a state of the art cardiovascular surgery suite which was funded by monies raised by the Annual Van Metre 5 Mile Run. In the first year, approximately 1000 surgeries were performed in the surgery suite.

It is located on a 5-acre parcel in our Stone Ridge community on Route 50 in Loudoun County that was donated by Mr. Van Metre. An annual Polo Cup & Luncheon is chaired by Dea and Beau Van Metre to raise money for this organization. To date, our support for Capital Hospice over the last 25 years has raised over $600,000 to help fund patient programs, education and research.
