Simpson Strong-Tie is committed to giving back to our communities through supporting the construction of safe and affordable housing, establishing and maintaining partnerships with organizations that align with our mission and values, maintaining our focus on our giving priorities, and providing charitable giving support through monetary and product donations, technical expertise and collaboration, and employee volunteering.
Simpson Strong-Tie receives numerous requests for cash and product donations, sponsorships, and other charitable giving support from non-profit organizations and individuals. We created these guidelines to provide anyone requesting support from us an understanding of what we support at an overall company level. These guidelines also provide a framework for Simpson Strong-Tie to evaluate charitable giving requests or partnerships and programs the company may want to support.
The company has identified four key areas to focus our overall charitable giving efforts. These include:
Providing monetary and product support, technical expertise and employee volunteers to organizations that increase access to safe, strong and affordable housing for underserved individuals and families.
Providing financial support to areas impacted by natural disasters.
Engaging with organizations working to improve the integrity of structures that are at risk for damage from natural disasters, before a disaster strikes.
Contributing to the quality of construction trades education and the promotion and advancement of the trades.
These four key areas guide our evaluation of organizations and programs the company will support at the companywide level. In addition, local Simpson Strong-Tie branches may support a variety of causes that align with local community needs and/or branch charitable giving priorities and interests.
