Getting Involved and Giving Back
We have a longstanding commitment to bettering our communities by contributing to worthwhile causes and organizations.
We focus our philanthropic efforts on the areas where we operate, providing community grants, donations and academic scholarships. The organizations we partner with vary by region. For example, our Washington operations have supported United Way of Mason County for decades, and over a five-year period, our Shelton office donated $1 million to the local YMCA. Meanwhile, our California operations have launched blood drives and supported Toys for Tots. Recently, they donated $100,000 to a nearby hospital.
Our mission in this work is to improve our communities’ quality of life and serve as a catalyst for employees to become involved. We encourage our team to give back through fundraising and volunteerism and to become leaders in the places where they live and work.
Deploying Resources to Our Operational Communities
We support local communities through grants and fundraising, including programs to match employees’ contributions. We recently worked with Fidelity Workplace Giving to create an Impact Fund that matches employee donations up to $3,000. We also have local funds that deploy community grants—typically ranging from $500 to $5,000—to qualifying organizations. Finally, through the Simpson Family Fund, which is named for the family that owns Green Diamond, we have spent years making large-scale donations to support regional youth organizations, medical facilities and more.
