Century West Cares
Century West employees give so much to their clients and colleagues. This spirit of generosity has inspired the launch of a new program aimed at providing employees with an avenue to make financial contributions to the communities and organizations they care about. We believe in investing in what’s important to our team, fostering the future of the engineering profession, and providing opportunities in underserved communities.
Our giving program has four main goals:
Invest in What’s Important to Our Employees: We want to support the causes that our employees care about. By allowing them to request donations to the charities they support, we are empowering our employees to make a difference in their communities.
Foster the Future of the Engineering Profession: As a civil engineering firm, we want to invest in the next generation of engineers. That’s why we prioritize requests that support educational programs for students.
Let Communities Know We’re Here: We want to be an active member of the communities we serve. By supporting local charities, we are letting our communities know that we are committed to making a positive impact.
Provide Opportunities in Underserved Communities: We believe that everyone should have access to opportunities to thrive. That’s why we prioritize requests that support underserved communities.
While we are open to giving to a wide variety of organizations or community groups, there are some parameters that we ask our employees to keep in mind when making a request. Donations must stay within Century West’s service area of Oregon, Washington, and North Idaho, and they cannot be requested for religious or political organizations or campaigns.
What Gets Funded?
In the past, we have supported a wide variety of organizations, including 4-H, Airshow of the Cascades, APWA Scholarship Fund, Bonner Community Food Bank, Ellensburg Food Bank, Future City, Idaho Walk Bike Alliance, MATHCOUNTS, Northwest Harvest, Oregon Food Bank, Professional Engineers of Oregon Scholarship Fund, Second Harvest, and Wonderland Express.
With Century West Cares, we are proud to support the causes that matter most to our employees, and we believe that our giving program is just one way we can make a positive impact in our communities. If you are an employee of Century West and would like to request a donation, please contact our giving committee leader, Kelsey Parpart for more information. Thank you for your commitment to making a difference!
