Every day, Olsson Associates staff members shape and enhance their neighborhoods and communities. Caring about the world we live in is not just a "9 to 5" job for our employees. That's one of the reasons we started Community Builders, which encourages our employees to become involved in their communities on a deeper level.
Through Community Builders, our employees are invited to share their skills and expertise in ways meaningful to them--by serving on boards, participating in volunteer activities, joining professional and civic organizations, making charitable donations, and much more. We believe that being successful at work each day is just one facet of feeling fulfilled and productive, and we want to help our employees extend their fulfillment to all areas of their lives.
Olsson Associates Foundation
Olsson Associates has a long history of giving back to the community. When John E. Olsson started the company in 1956, he felt it was important to give back to the communities we served. In 2015, the Olsson Associates Foundation was created as a 501(c)(3) private foundation. Its mission is to support the environment, education, and community.
For reference, you can download our 2018 Foundation funding request form. Requests for 2018 funding are due by April 6, 2018. Requests for future-year funding will be available in the first quarter of each year.
