THE FIRM ESTABLISHED THE SELECT EQUITY GROUP FOUNDATION IN 2000.
The mission of the Foundation is to make a positive impact by actively engaging all employees in identifying and supporting charitable organizations of excellence. The breadth of our philanthropic portfolio reflects the diverse interests of our employee base, while the quality of our chosen grantees reflects Select Equity’s rigorous research process, including an application by invitation, site visits and discussions with leadership before an award can be considered.
The Foundation supports a wide variety of charitable programs and a unique employee matching gift program. To date, over $35 million in grants has been awarded to local, national and international not-for-profit organizations in the areas of Advocacy and Civil Rights, Arts and Culture, Education and Youth Development, Environmental Causes, Health, Human Services and International Development.
