Caring for people is more than a core value. It’s practiced every day in communities across the country where our employees live and work. It’s how we make a real difference in the communities we call home.

Explore Our Commitment to Community
At The Standard, there are countless ways to get involved, give back and find your favorite way to care.
The philosophy behind our charitable giving is shaped by the same attributes that help make us a leading provider of financial services: integrity, commitment and doing things differently.
From paid volunteer time off to community service awards, we cultivate a broad and rewarding culture of caring.
Our annual free event connects people with nonprofits that need their support.
We’re as committed to our communities as we are to sustainable practices that reduce our ecological footprint.

The Standard Charitable Foundation
The Standard Charitable Foundation recently awarded grants totaling $150,000 to four nonprofits.
Our two-year partnership supports MESO’s mission to empower under-resourced entrepreneurs. The nonprofit offers the training and capital people need to succeed at all stages of small-business development.
Our multiyear pledge supports the construction of Portland’s De La Salle North Catholic High School. The school serves a racially diverse community of students who would otherwise lack access to a reliable college-preparatory education.
Approximately 300 Oregon youths age out of foster care each year without the skills, resources or support needed for living on their own. Our grant provides support for LifeSet, which helps them meet basic needs, maintain good mental health and achieve long-term goals.
The grant is the final in a five-year professorship in analytics in the business intelligence and analytics program at Portland State University.
