Northwest Select believes that we can impact the world. We participate in our communities in various ways inspiring hope in others.
Encouraging employees to make impact decisions in an important first step. We do that by giving each team member up to four ways to give through the company, which includes selecting just where that money goes.
Next, we offer tenants to participate in our annual Inspire Hope campaign during the holidays. Tenants vote on a pre-selected group of charitable organizations, and each vote determines where a financial contribution will be made. It is the desire of NWSRES that their Inspire Hope initiative offers not only an opportunity to give, but generates a ripple effect of hope and inspiration that continues beyond this campaign.
Northwest Select participates in events that alter the course of a few carefully vetted organizations. We want to change the world, and do so through the following partnership with the Café Racer’s Union. The CRU is a motorcycle riding club dedicated to the riding, history, preservation and sharing of all things known from the Cafe Racer society. CRU Members are highly successful professionals with backgrounds from military branches to corporate executives and business owners with a focus on turning their passion for the ride and moto's into impact for the community. CRU members are not required to have a “café racer” and all marquees are welcome. Café racers are a manufacturer’s model today, in the 1950's they were a social group within the riding community and rode a broad range of motorcycles.
We participate in events that bring financial relief and benefit to:
Why: Because MS is diagnosed in the Pacific Northwest as one of the highest diagnosed areas in the world. The MS Society has an excellent track record for patient support AND research to reduce its effect on those dealing with the unpredictability MS has. Dramatic improvements have been made in the last 25 years making it tolerable and livable.
Why: This motorcycle ride raises awareness and focus to men’s health issues. So much fundraising is done for women and children, and men simply get left in the dust sometimes. This ride is held once a year in September and is worldwide. Men and women across the globe dress up and ride motorcycles on pre-determined routes to raise awareness for prostate health and men’s mental health. Join other in the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Kenya, Morocco, Gibraltar, and New Zealand, among so many more, who will be on this ride, the same day for the same cause. Won’t you join us?
Old Dog Haven is a small nonprofit group using a large network of foster homes to provide a loving safe home for abandoned senior dogs in western Washington. When we have room and the means, we take these dogs into our homes. We adopt out those dogs with a reasonable life-expectancy. We care for the rest as members of the family in permanent foster homes (what we call “Final Refuge”) for as long as they have good quality of life. In addition, we try to assist owners in finding new homes for their senior dogs through our website and referrals.
Summit Assistance Dogs is a nonprofit organization that creates life-changing partnerships by providing highly-skilled mobility service dogs for people living with disabilities.
By assisting with tasks such as retrieving items, opening and closing doors, and turning switches on and off, our dogs help their partners live with greater independence and confidence. These companions can also help diminish depression, anxiety, and loneliness.
