The Deacon Charitable Foundation was started in 2006 by Deacon Corp., a general contractor with offices in Washington, Oregon and California.
Deacon Corp. funds the Foundation with profits from its operations, in keeping with the corporate mission to “Support Our Communities.”
Employees determine where the Foundation will focus its support, and the Foundation mission statement reflects their wishes.
Seven current or former Deacon employees make up the Foundation Board of Directors. An executive director supports the daily operations and the Charitable Giving Committees in each of the company’s four offices.
