We are very proud to be again included in The Puget Sound Business Journal’s 2018 Corporate Philanthropy List. We have deep roots in our region and our philanthropic mission has for many years been to help create a more vibrant and socially connected community for the benefit of our employees, our clients and everyone who lives here.
The Puget Sound Business Journal (PSBJ) recognized Laird Norton Wealth Management among 75 companies in Washington State that “are striving to be better and more responsible businesses by rethinking how they interact with ‘The Triple Bottom Line’ — people, planet and profit.” In total, the 75 companies gave just over $246 million in Washington State in 2017, of which $155 million was in cash gifts, according to the PSBJ.
Here at LNWM, we believe corporate philanthropy should leverage all the existing capabilities within a company — not just money but also expertise and employee involvement — for the benefit of society and the company itself. We have found that well-coordinated philanthropic efforts can unite a community and achieve results that are far greater than the sum of what each participant contributes.
