Working with Our Neighbors to Improve the Quality of Life
Our tradition of philanthropy and community engagement traces back through generations.
For instance, one of our earliest leaders and a member of the Washington State Legislature, Mark E. Reed, is the namesake of our signature scholarship program. He also helped found the Mason County Chamber of Commerce in Shelton, Washington, with which our leaders continue to work closely today. Community is one of our core values at Green Diamond, and it shapes every aspect of our work. From providing scholarships and grants to collaborating closely with local stakeholders, we strive to be good neighbors in all we do.
All our operations take place in rural communities, where our economic and social impact is felt all around. As these communities know, our timberlands don’t just deliver forest products—they preserve spaces for outdoor recreation, enhance fire resilience and create family-wage careers. We take pride in using our resources to support people, organizations and programs working to improve the quality of life in the places our people call home.
