Responsibility is one of the core corporate values at Sterling, Johnston, & Associates (SJA), and to us it's more than just a buzzword. At SJA, the idea of responsibility is more than accounting for the business services we provide, and more than assuming responsibility for our clients. To us, responsibility means taking proactive, action-oriented steps focused on benefiting our local communities and solving problems. Our charitable endeavors reflect these goals, as we give back to the community, and those in need. SJA takes pride in our leadership role, and we use it to address some of the area's most significant problems. Some of our current efforts include:
- Sterling, Johnston underwrites all the operating costs for the non profit Feed Washington. Feed Washington was founded and is run by Eirik Olsen (one of the SJA partners). Feed Washington’s purpose is to end hunger for the nearly 300,000 hungry children in Washington State. To date, Feed Washington has provided over 500,000 meals for our State’s hungry kids.
- Charity of the quarter. Each quarter we choose a worthy local charity to partner with. We then donate a percentage of our total revenue from our business activities, earned during the quarter, to that organization.
- Participation in the Big Climb. The Big Climb is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society largest local fundraising event. All proceeds go to LLS’ mission to cure Leukemia, Lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and Myeloma and to improve the quality of life for patients and their families.
- Sterling, Johnston’s owners, staff, property managers, and real estate brokers are also engaged in the community as Girls Scouts cookie moms, chamber of commerce members, school district fundraisers, board members for the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery, volunteer coaches, mentors, non-profit event organizers, and the list goes on.
