The San Francisco Business Times, Puget Sound Business Journal, Phoenix Business Journal, and the Portland Business Journal all named Brighton Jones a top corporate philanthropist. This is the second year in a row that Brighton Jones has been recognized for corporate giving, in addition to winning the 2018 Community Impact Award Business of the Year from Seattle Business magazine.

Beyond our core philanthropy program, which donates 1 percent of revenue to charitable causes, offers unlimited time off for volunteering, and provides company matches for employee volunteer time and donations, we recognized as a team that we could help in other ways.

In March, we raised $10,000 for the United Way King County’s COVID-19 Relief Fund, which distributed money for rent relief and food programs. And in August, each of our offices chose organizations working on behalf of racial justice to support with donations beyond their usual grant budgets. This fall, we will launch our first Community Impact Circle on racial justice.

Brighton Jones’ mission is to help our colleagues, clients, and the global community live richer lives. We believe one of the best ways to do this by giving back in the communities where we work.

About the Puget Sound Business Journal Award

The top corporate philanthropist award is based on total cash given to Washington non-profits during 2019. In total, the 75 companies recognized by the journal gave away $185.6 million. The donors include companies in three size categories (large, medium, and small) based on annual revenue. Brighton Jones is in the medium category.

Qualified donations for the list are made without commercial incentives, benefits, or advantages received by the donor company. They don’t include sponsorships, table purchases, or any other contribution made in return for access to the commercial potential associated with an organization or event.

Molly Norton is the philanthropic advisor at Brighton Jones.
