Brighton Jones of Seattle, WA boasts an impressive volunteer time off policy. It does not limit the number of hours an employee can use to volunteer during the workday. All 170 of its employees took advantage of this unlimited VTO; some even using it for international service trips in places such as Iraq, India, and Guatemala. Brighton Jones also offers a matching gift of up to $1,000 for its employees to utilize throughout the year. Not including any matching gift dollars, the firm donated over $345,000 to charity their last fiscal year.
Brighton Jones has its own nonprofit called The Brighton Jones Richer Life Foundation. This foundation helps the firm’s clients increase their charitable impact by learning and giving collaboratively to causes they care about. They host a series of site visits to local nonprofits to get people interacting with their leaders and hearing about their needs. The foundation also supports three grassroots projects in Kenya. Employees travel there twice a year with clients and colleagues interested in international giving.
