Olympus America

Social Responsibility: Community Involvement


At Olympus, we focus on select non-profits in each of our corporate locations based on employee feedback and Board of Directors support. This allows us to build meaningful partnerships and directly address the most important needs of each organization. We support our chosen non-profits financially, with volunteer hours, and with donation drives.

In addition, on a national level we focus our support efforts on disaster relief and colon cancer awareness.


Olympus INvolved

Olympus is passionate about encouraging employees to be actively involved in the communities in which we live and work. We developed the following programs, collectively referred to as Olympus INvolved, because we recognize the importance of supporting community organizations, programs and activities that employees' support:

Double Your Dollars for Charity
We match employee donations to qualified non-profits dollar for dollar.
Dollars for Doers
When employees volunteer non-work time with qualified non-profits, we contribute dollars on behalf of the hours they serve.
Workday Volunteering Olympus offers employees up to 16 paid work hours a year to volunteer with their favorite non-profits as part of an employee team or individually. We partner with various local organizations at each of our corporate locations and in the field, so that all of our employees can get involved.

* 501(c)(3) is a designation indicating that the charitable organization is registered with the IRS and eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions from the public.
