2017 was another exciting year of giving and volunteerism at Comcast Washington, which earned us 14th place in the prestigious Puget Sound Business Journal’s list of top local corporate philanthropists in the region. The awards were announced last week at the Business Journal’s annual Corporate Citizenship Awards luncheon at the Sheraton Seattle Hotel.
“It is an honor to be recognized among the leading corporate citizens in our region,” said Amy Lynch, Region Vice President, Comcast Washington. “This award reflects the commitment of Comcast and our 4,800 Washington state employees who give back to the communities we serve.”
The Business Journal surveys local businesses each year about their monetary contributions, in-kind giving and community service efforts. The publication then ranks the top 75 businesses based on their efforts to strengthen our communities through philanthropy. Comcast Washington ranked 14th among the Top 75 Biggest Corporate Philanthropists in Washington, which includes companies with annual revenues of more than $500 million.
In 2017, Comcast provided more than $1.7 million in cash and in-kind contributions to charitable organizations in Washington that share our commitment to improving communities. Some of our local beneficiaries last year include: Ada’s Developers Academy, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Bunker Labs Seattle, Boys & Girls Clubs, El Centro de la Raza, Mary’s Place, Seattle Goodwill, United Way, Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle, YMCA and others.
