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.
One of the Granite’s core values is supporting and improving the communities in which our customers and team members live and work. Over the past decade, Granite's team members have generously given more than $40M and over 20,000 volunteer hours to hundreds of worthy causes like shelters, food pantries and kitchens, veterans support centers, hospitals, YMCAs and rescue leagues.
