Concept Solutions has donated to the National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering (NACME). We are proud to support NACME Inc, a local nonprofit organization that supports minority college students pursuing careers in engineering and computer science and increases the proportion of Black young women and men in STEM careers. We look forward to supporting our team members, our community, and future computer science and engineering students.
Concept Solutions continues to support DURI.AN Organization for funding school lunches in the highland villages of Vietnam. The people there are Hmong, an ethnic minority who still adhere to an agrarian way of life. DURI.AN allows young children in Vietnam to access basic human needs such as food, water, and education. CS is also currently supporting a project to build a bathroom for one of the elementary schools.
Concept Solutions is proud to support Veterans Moving Forward (VMF). This nonprofit organization provides service dogs and canine therapy services to veterans with physical and/or mental health challenges at no cost to the veteran. VMF’s Services are available to any veteran of any generation, who served honorably, has physical and/or mental challenges resulting from military operations and/or accident or disease experienced during military service, and can benefit from a service dog.
The recent national events highlighting racial injustice and tension in our society are heartbreaking and traumatic and we are saddened that it continues even today in our country. We at Concept Solutions (CS) are deeply disturbed and our hearts are heavy. We are a nation in anguish. We owe it to the diverse people who make up our company, our customers, and our country to listen, take a stand, support and speak up with positive action.
To our Black team members and families, we recognize your pain and feelings of fatigue over the injustices you and your family members have to face each and every day. We are proud that our CS family, employees and customers, is diverse and inclusive of our Black community. Our hearts break for the resilience you have required over our country’s history. We vow to ensure CS is a place of inclusion and solace for everyone.
Systemic racism is deep-rooted in our society which keeps the most disadvantaged and underprivileged people down. A problem of that magnitude requires an equally systematic approach to creating consistent and enduring impact. CS stands united to be part of the solution to change that. Though CS is proud of the diversity throughout our company, we can always do better. To make the available pool of candidates in our field better reflect America’s diversity, and being a company steeped in STEM capabilities, CS will provide a donation to National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering (NACME) to increase the proportion of Black young women and men in STEM careers. Diversity is our strength, and cultivating an environment of inclusion, teamwork, and civility is our duty.
We hope that this letter opens the line of communication so that we can address the issues and have the difficult conversations, not shy away from them.

CS Runners helped raise money and awareness for charity and got to run on the Dulles Runway. Our captain, Jason Cunha, led our team of CS employees, friends and family on the flattest, fastest course in the area. The full length portion of the runway was closed off for runners to experience a flat, fast course and a unique look at the airport grounds…something you do not get to do every day! Run past planes and along the actual landing strip on this certified looped course.
In addition to the money raised by the runners, ConceptSolutions contributed an additional donation to the Special Olympics Virginia.
All race proceeds benefit Special Olympics Virginia, the Committee for Dulles Community Outreach, and the Washington Airports Task Force, all 501c3 nonprofit organizations closely affiliated with Dulles Airport.

Each holiday season, the Concept Solutions’ employees help support local families by providing generous donations. This year we worked with U. S.

These toys are wrapped as Christmas gifts and given to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted. We are proud of the support our company and employees provide each year.

About Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS)
LLS’s continued advancements over the years, are responsible for the blood cancer survival rate doubling and tripling; in some cases, the survival rate has even quadrupled. And many LLS supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are now used to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers. They’re even being tested in clinical trials for patients with a range of cancers including lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers. LLS funded drugs are now being tested for patients with other non-cancerous diseases like Diabetes, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Multiple Sclerosis.
We are happy to announce that Concept Solutions is supporting The Salvation Army “Angel Tree Program” this holiday season to help those in need. The Angel Tree Program matches donors with children from qualified families who are unable to provide gifts and clothing to their children during the holiday season.
To make the holiday season brighter for a child, our employees donate gifts and/or gift cards. Gift ideas are available as an “Angel” tag from the tree located at the Front Desk in the Lobby of the Reston Office.
We had a great assortment of gifts and employees pitched in to deliver the presents to the local Salvation Army collection center.
