Telos Corporate Citizenship
At Telos, corporate citizenship is a natural extension of our business philosophy. Through active philanthropy partnerships and community involvement, our efforts are making a difference.
Support for our military
Because we work side-by-side with our military customers every day, we have a special appreciation for the sacrifices made by those who wear our country’s uniform. Although our products and services enhance their mission effectiveness around the world every day, Telos employees do not stop there – we show our appreciation in a deeper way by supporting those causes that matter most to our customers.
Telos is a proud supporter of TAPS, Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors, a 24/7 tragedy assistance resource for those who have suffered the loss of a military loved one, regardless of the relationship to the deceased or the circumstance of the death. Founded by Bonnie Carroll in 1994 following the death of her husband Brigadier General Tom Carroll, TAPS has established itself as the front line resource to the families and loved ones of our military men and women. TAPS provides comfort and care through comprehensive services and programs including peer-based emotional support, case work assistance, crisis intervention, and grief and trauma resources.
Telos has been a longtime Presenting Sponsor of the TAPS Honor Guard Gala, fielded teams for the TAPS Run and Remember Team Army Ten-Miler and Marine Corps Marathon (MCM), and hosted a golf tournament with 100% or proceeds going back to TAPS. In addition, and through our strong partnership with Monumental Sports and Entertainment Foundation, the Washington Wizards and Washington Capitals, we have proudly sponsored the Courage Caps program, helping to raise funds and awareness for TAPS among sports fans.
Telos has teamed with the nation’s largest coldwater conservation organization, Trout Unlimited (TU) to serve U.S. veterans. The TU Veterans Service Program works with veteran rehabilitation groups across the country, assisting veterans in rehabilitation after physical and emotional injuries. In addition to the unique therapeutic value of fly fishing, veterans are introduced to TU’s conservation work, youth education programs and various community outreach initiatives. TU engages its extensive network of volunteers to introduce wounded and returning veterans to TU’s conservation work through fly fishing. Teaching fly casting basics and providing an introduction to conservation issues throughout the country, TU chapters and partner organizations provide instruction, camaraderie and local networks of anglers to veterans around the country.
As a technology company, Telos has a special interest in science and technology education. We are keenly aware of the need to ensure the children of our community are excited about the possibilities of a career in technology, and have the tools they need to succeed. Telos is committed to ensuring tomorrow’s workforce has the training it needs to succeed in the 21st Century work place.
For the second year, Telos

Telos employees also volunteer for a variety of STEM and workforce development related initatives, including: Girls in Technology, the Air Force Association's CyberPatriot Challenge, Technology Education and Literacy in Schools (TEALS), and Future Leaders in Project Management (FLiPM).
Telos CEO John Wood has said it many times: he wants to make Loudoun County the best place to live and work in America.
Project Rebirth has documented the reconstruction of the World Trade Center site in a feature-length film using time-lapsed photography and the personal stories of 6 individuals as they cope with the aftermath of the disaster. Released in the summer of 2011, Rebirth will ensure that people today and in future generations can experience the rebuilding process, and learn from our nation’s resilience.
