Community Involvement

We take great pride in our communities

At Rho, supporting and participating in programs that enhance and strengthen our communities, whether it’s where we live or where we work, is fundamental to our core values. Our founders’ charitable passion for community service has inspired an overwhelming outpouring of volunteerism from our employees and many of our charitable efforts have been the result of employee feedback and suggestions. Our commitment to community service is just one more way that Rho helps communities thrive and enriches lives.

Rho has been passionate about supporting public education for many years. At the corporate level, along with many of our employees, we have financially supported DonorsChoose and assisted in sponsoring the North Carolina Science and Engineering Fair.

We are proud of these efforts, but we want to do more. That’s why we have decided to support the Durham Public Schools Foundation. In many communities, public education is facing serious challenges. Durham Public Schools is one such school system facing big hurdles – lack of community support, achievement gaps, racial disparities, and poor teacher retention, to name a few.

The bottom line is that great public schools enhance our families, our communities, and our economies. The need in Durham is great. Our support for DPSF is our way of putting our money where our mouth is.

We are investing locally, investing in the next generation of scientists, researchers, and leaders, and making lives better for children – all of which aligns with our core purpose of improving the world through excellence. We invite you to visit the DPSF website to learn about the important work they are doing and how you can support it.

It’s good knowing your employers care that much about their community and will provide the opportunity for their employees to become easily involved.
