We encourage employees to become involved in, promote, and support causes that invest in the future of the communities where we work and live.

We support employee involvement through the following programs.

Volunteer Hours Program

Stout gives employees eight hours of paid time off per year to participate in community service projects with a qualified charity of their choice.

Matching Gift Program

Stout matches donations up to $100 a year made by employees to charitable organizations.

Community Sponsorship

We aim to support at least three events per year at every one of our offices, working with local charities and organizations.

Nonprofit Board Participation

Stout offers financial support to help employees provide pro bono services through strategic board positions. Stout will provide up to $2,500 per employee in support of their involvement with a nonprofit organization.

The Stout-Ryder Cup

With the goal of raising money for charity, the Stout-Ryder Cup is a monthly fitness competition in which Stout employees go head-to-head with professional golfer and Stout brand ambassador Sam Ryder. Competition efforts are converted to a charitable donation to Food Rescue US.

Volunteer Grant Program

Stout provides a monetary donation to eligible nonprofits as a way to recognize employees who volunteer at those organizations. Our goal is to promote volunteerism among employees and fund nonprofit organizations that provide valuable services in communities where our employees live and work. Stout provides up to $25,000 annually in volunteer grants.
