Giving back to our clients, the communities that we work with, and local charities, is important to us.

DNA is a proud to support our clients’ community activities, children’s and youth sports teams, and cultural events. Our focus is to support initiatives that help to build a sense of community, confidence, teamwork, sportsmanship, and encourage healthy lifestyles.

DNA has also supported the great work of many local charities in the Lower Mainland for the past few decades through our annual Employee Christmas Charity Challenge. Our Employee Christmas Charity Challenge allows us to provide annual support to the great work that organizations provide to our
community. For the past several years, DNA has provided a volunteering opportunity for DNA team members, to serve a Christmas lunch at the Union Gospel Mission, a charitable organization providing support services to those struggling with homelessness and addiction in the Metro Vancouver area and
the city of mission. DNA is also a proud supporter of the Canadian Cancer Society Daffodil Campaign, funding life saving research into all types of cancer.
