Helping others is, and has always been, part of Granite’s mission.
Since its inception, Granite’s owners have cultivated a culture of giving at Granite in many ways,
including by personally and generously supporting certain flagship charitable causes.
They have also instilled their spirit of generosity in others by regularly and actively encouraging
all Granite employees to give time and /or money to hundreds of worthy causes,
especially those in the local communities where Granite operates.
Granite’s signature annual fundraising event, the company sponsors a carnival-like family celebration at Granite headquarters with all fundraising to support Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
