Corporations for Communities Award WA State Capitol
Washington State Capitol in Olympia, WA

Washington Secretary of State Kim Wyman recently announced the recipients of the 2017 Corporations for Communities Award, and Brighton Jones is thrilled to be named among the honorees! The prestigious award, which recognizes Washington businesses that prioritize community engagement and philanthropy, will be presented to Brighton Jones and four other recipients during a ceremony at the State Capitol next month.

“Washington is blessed to have so many caring companies that give back to their communities in a variety of ways,” Secretary Wyman said in a statement. “This awards program is a great way to recognize companies that go above and beyond to make a difference …”

Since our founding nearly two decades ago, philanthropy has been a core focus at Brighton Jones. We invest our time and resources to support those in need because giving back improves the quality of life for everyone involved. Our mission of helping clients, colleagues, and community members live richer lives is not just a slogan—it’s a principle we live by every day.

Brighton Jones recently launched the 1% for Compassion initiative, a commitment that will see us donate 1 percent of revenues to support both local and international organizations.

“By the very nature of our work, we’re called to join our clients at the intersection of life and wealth,” noted CEO Jon Jones. “We’re privileged to serve them not only through life’s many happy milestones, but also to provide support during more challenging times. That full range of experiences has propelled our desire to improve both our awareness and capabilities in the areas of emotional and social wellbeing, compassion being a key component of both.”

The effort is paying off—in addition to the Corporations for Communities honor, Brighton Jones was named a 2017 top corporate philanthropist by the Puget Sound Business Journal. What’s more, we just launched the 1% for Compassion initiative, a commitment that will see Brighton Jones donate 1 percent of revenues to support both local and international organizations.

The push to help those around us doesn’t end with donations, of course. In fact, Brighton Jones employees contributed more than 3,000 volunteer hours in 2016 to organizations like United Way, New Horizons, Pike Place Market Foundation, and Seattle Union Gospel Mission.

Do you have a suggestion for an organization or cause you would like Brighton Jones to focus on? We’d love to hear from you.

Thanks to Secretary Wyman for her support and recognition, and congratulations to the other recipients!
