What is
Granite Cares?
Helping others is, and has always been, part of Granite’s mission. Since its inception, Granite has cultivated a culture of giving in many ways, including by personally and generously supporting certain flagship charitable causes.
Employees nominate a 501c3 accredited charity each week and, with a $3 donation, teammates have the option of wearing jeans on Fridays.
Granite will then match all money raised and 100% of proceeds will go directly to the charity.
