Our Community

“Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth”
-Muhammad Ali

Doran Companies is fortunate to develop and build projects in many different communities and one way we show our appreciation and respect for these communities is to incorporate original public art into the exterior design and landscape.  In addition to sculpture art, we take great pride in our use of extensive floral backgrounds and to enhance the welcoming environment of our properties. Doran Company employees are also active in our local communities, at our children’s schools, and in many associations. In addition, we often contribute financially to community projects, causes and charities. This commitment to community involvement is something that we encourage as a way to share our talents and resources in an effort to strengthen the fabric of our communities.
