At IKO Community Management, we’re invested in our community. IKO Community Management believes that communities aren’t just bricks and mortar. Communities are made of individuals, each with something to offer and each with their own challenges. IKO Cares about the people in our communities and wants to introduce you to some of the great causes we support. In addition to supporting our staff’s charitable efforts, IKO is a proud supporter of the following charities:
The Capital Campaign for Oncology will support radiation therapy, the infusion center and the oncology unit at MedStar Montgomery Medical Center. The funds raised will advance cancer diagnosis and treatments, purchase the best medical technology in our area and enhance preventative programs and support services.
“It is my honor to be the chair of the Capital Campaign for Oncology. I firmly believe that MedStar Montgomery’s vision of expanding the cancer treatment services in our community will be a major step forward in the hospital’s long-term quest to provide the best modern technology and medical equipment furthering our efforts in the treatment of this dreaded disease. The acquisition of new linear accelerator for radiation therapy will help localize treatment options, making it more accessible for patients and families, and will go a long way in addressing this vision. I appeal to the philanthropic spirit of both businesses and community members to assist us in reaching this vision.”
-Lou Iaquinta, Campaign Chair

The Interfaith Families Project of Greater Washington (IFFP) is an independent community of interfaith families and others committed to sharing, learning about, and celebrating our Jewish and Christian traditions. It is the only interfaith organization of its kind in the country.
IKO contributes to IFFP each year by participating in The IFFP toiletry collection drive which begins each fall. IKO’s Diane Katz stores and assembles the bags and instructs children at the IFFP Holiday Party to decorate the bags with stickers or glitter. IFFP members visit an assisted living facility on a Sunday afternoon in December, usually after the holiday party. Interested residents of the assisted living center gather in the activity room for cookies, punch and holiday entertainment. The IFFP Teen Group passes out the toiletry gift bags to the residents’ rooms who could not attend the festivities while caroling and visiting with residents. IFFP distributes more than 130 bags each year.
IKO is a proud supporter of the IFFP Collection Drive.
