Founded in 2000, the mission of the Select Equity Group Foundation is to make a positive impact by actively engaging all employees in identifying and supporting charitable organizations of excellence.

Select Equity and the Select Equity Group Foundation have donated to local, national, and international non-profit organizations in the areas of education and youth development, advocacy and civil rights, arts and culture, environmental causes, health, human services, and international development.

The diversity of the Foundation’s grants is driven by the democratic nature of our grantmaking practices. Each employee engages in the grantmaking process by selecting an organization, performing appropriate levels of due diligence, pitching the organization, allocating funds, and continuously evaluating their charity of interest.

The Foundation also supports an employee Matching Gifts program, an arts initiative (“SEG Voices”) and has recently launched a scholarship fund (“SEG Scholars”).
