Social Responsibility: Community Involvement
CORPORATE COMMUNITY SUPPORT
At Olympus, we focus on select non-profits in each of our corporate locations based on employee feedback and Board of Directors support. This allows us to build meaningful partnerships and directly address the most important needs of each organization. We support our chosen non-profits financially, with volunteer hours, and with donation drives.
In addition, on a national level we focus our support efforts on disaster relief and colon cancer awareness.
Olympus is passionate about encouraging employees to be actively involved in the communities in which we live and work. We developed the following programs, collectively referred to as Olympus INvolved, because we recognize the importance of supporting community organizations, programs and activities that employees' support:
We match employee donations to qualified non-profits dollar for dollar.
When employees volunteer non-work time with qualified non-profits, we contribute dollars on behalf of the hours they serve.
We share the cost of discounted cameras and audio equipment with employees for them to donate to qualified charities.
* 501(c)(3) is a designation indicating that the charitable organization is registered with the IRS and eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions from the public.
