Supporting Our Communities

Our social commitment includes work that benefits the communities in which we operate. BrightView regularly donates time, expertise, materials, and financial resources in support of worthy organizations across the U.S., helping our communities prosper and thrive.

In every region in which we operate, BrightView teams are offering our resources – financial, technical and human – to improve the lives of others. In addition to donated landscapes for schools, civic organizations and groups that honor military service, BrightView is committed to helping restore communities ravaged by natural disasters. A recent example of BrightView’s commitment to communities is the donation of more than $320,000 in landscaping design, installation and maintenance work to Philadelphia’s Independence National Historical Park, home of the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. The project consisted of turf remediation (100,000 square feet of new sod was laid), repairs to the irrigation system, improvements to the gardens and hardscape, and the beds surrounding the Liberty Bell Center. Download the “Between Friends” newsletter to read more about the makeover on page 21.
