At Stone, giving back to our community is part of our DNA. Since our launch in 1995, one of our core corporate values has been giving back to the causes that are nearest to us.
Some of our primary charitable initiatives include:
The Gale & Rick Stone
The Gale & Rick Stone Foundation was established in 2009 to honour the memory of our Founder’s wife, Gale Stone. The Foundation believes that every child has the right to thrive and grow to reach his or her potential.
Recognizing that children need the opportunity to acquire life skills essential to becoming productive citizens, the Foundation has an interest in funding programs in the areas of adolescent growth and development, financial literacy, arts and culture and civics.
Stone Employee Charity Days
The Stone Charity Day Program allows each of our employees to spend two paid business days per year volunteering for the charity of their choice.
For 2021, this will represent approximately 44 days of volunteer work provided by Stone employees to the Canadian community.
