Whether it’s partnering with clients, working on high-stakes projects for the Cleveland area or giving back to non-profits and the community, we believe our prosperity as a firm is only as good as the shared prosperity with our clients and the city we call home. As an organization and as individuals, we are committed to being proactively engaged in the communities where we live and work.

Economic Development

Throughout our history of more than 60 years, Dix & Eaton has played important roles in major projects benefiting the economic vitality of Northeast Ohio. Over the years, we have been involved in signature projects related to:

  • JobsOhio, which is dedicated to spurring economic development across the state
  • The revitalization of downtown Cleveland and Public Square
  • Communications around the 2016 Republican National Convention
  • Renovations to Playhouse Square and the Gateway District
  • Completion of the new Cleveland Convention Center and the Global Center for Health Innovation
  • The rebirth of the Cleveland Browns

Pro Bono Service

In addition to the opportunity to work on economic development projects that uplift the region, we frequently give back to the community through pro bono projects that have a lasting impact in other ways. These projects have been completed through the Henry F. Eaton Legacy Project, which honored the firm’s late co-founder, and our “60 for 60” program, which made community service a key part of our 60th anniversary celebration. Examples include working with:

  • Team NEO, the region’s business attraction organization
  • The Greater Cleveland Partnership
  • The Cleveland Metropolitan School District
  • Bike Cleveland

Non-profit Engagement

Collectively, D&E employees serve on nearly 50 boards and commissions and volunteer countless hours with civic, charitable and educational organizations where they have an interest and where their involvement can have a positive impact. Altogether, the D&E team provides approximately $450,000 in pro bono and nonprofit engagement time and financial support to such organizations each year. D&E consistently ranks as one of Cleveland’s top mid-size company contributors to United Way.  We value the work of nonprofits in our community and we could not imagine Cleveland without them and the generous people who support such organizations.
