Campaign Update | Jan/Feb 2022
Partner Spotlight: Eleccion, LLC
Enabling Partners and Co-Founders of Eleccion, LLC, Craig Ridley and Deanna Doan, have been staunch supporters of the Northern Virginia Science Center Foundation since the opening of the Children's Science Center Lab, serving as volunteers, donors, and ambassadors for STEM learning in the community. Mr. Ridley joined the Foundation's Board of Directors in 2017, and the Foundation is now excited to announce the next step in this partnership as Eleccion joins the Launch the Future campaign as an Element Partner.

Eleccion's generous support will be recognized permanently on the chemical element Xenon (Xe), atomic number 54, on an interactive periodic table installation in the entrance hall of the future Science Center. "We're an organization full of curious learners. We ask why a lot. Equally as important, we take action. We're excited that Eleccion can be a notable factor in STEM education, learning, and workforce development for our region," said Craig Ridley. "As diverse founders, we believe the Science Center's mission and values align perfectly with ours. This will be an amazing resource and path to STEM enrichment for our diverse community." added Deanna Doan.

Based in Herndon, VA, Eleccion focuses on organizational modeling, technology adoption, and innovation management within the federal government and strategic industry partnerships.
