Giving is an important and integral part to the way we run our business. We give with no expectation of return. However, we believe very strongly that the more you give, the more you receive. We believe giving shouldn’t be an obligation, it should be a choice that gives us joy.
When we created the Team, we implemented a system where a percentage of our income goes into an account that is distributed out throughout the year. At the beginning of the year, we choose several key areas where the majority of our money will go. We also like to do “Random Acts of Kindness” that are spur of the moment and tend to be very fun and rewarding for all of us on the Team.
Some of the groups we’ve donated to over the last few years include:
- Sauvie Island Academy
- Girls Inc.
- Rotary International
- Pearl fund: Local Rotary Club
- Fences for Fido
- American Red Cross
- Arthritis Foundation
- Habitat for Humanity
- Oregon Wildlife Heritage Foundation
- National MS Society
- Feral Cat Coalition
- Boys and Girls Club
- Devin’s Destiny – Birthday parties for homeless children in Central Oregon
- Family sponsorship for Christmas and the holidays
