Our commitment to service finds expression beyond our client relationships. We volunteer our time and energy to many charities, foundations and other organizations working to improve our schools, our neighborhoods and our business environment.
Caring Matters – founded as Hospice Caring in 1989, this organization serves children, adults and families facing life-threatening illness and experiencing the death of a loved one. CaringMatters also increases community awareness and advocacy about end-of-life concerns, advance care planning and grief, with a mission to provide social supports and community education so that no one dies or grieves alone.
Shulman Rogers’ Community Outreach Committee identifies, coordinates and executes volunteer activities throughout Montgomery County and Metro Washington. Below are just a few of our recent service projects and community events.

Since the first golf tournament in 2005, the EagleBank Foundation has raised over $3.5 million for the benefit of local area hospitals and organizations in their fight against breast cancer. These funds have enabled local hospitals and other cancer-focused organizations in our community to continue ongoing research and provide support services—all dedicated to eradicating breast cancer.

Annual Bake Sale
Each February, Shulman Rogers’ Community Outreach Committee organizes a Valentine’s Day Bake Sale, donating all proceeds to a Montgomery County or Greater DC non-profit.
