Employee Engagement Opportunities

Employee Engagement Packages

Inspire team build and activate you employees. Employee engagement packages can be tailored to fit your goals and ensure your dollars have tangible impact. Below are sample Employee Engagement Packages.

Team Building

Dozens of local businesses partner with Forterra and the Green Cities Partnership each year to engage, inspire and strengthen their employee teams while restoring native plant communities in nearby parks and natural areas. For many companies, this is an annual event that their employees look forward to every year. Tangible field work is fun and rewarding and provides an excellent opportunity to build leadership, problem solving, and cooperative skills. Contact us to:

  • Register a team of employees for an existing event
  • Schedule a special volunteer event exclusively for your team
  • Have a Forterra representative speak to your employees about volunteer opportunities near them
  • Receive materials with Forterra’s mission, current projects and upcoming events and opportunities to distribute to employees

Adopt a Property

For companies with a strong base of employees interested in volunteering, adopting a protected property provides a unique opportunity to commit to a nearby natural area and experience the positive impacts of your hands-on work over time. Forterra owns hundreds of protected properties across the region, many of which are visited by dozens of neighbors, families and school groups each year, and all of which could use your help.

Companies that commit to adopting a protected property for at least three years will:

  • Have at least one annual Forterra-led volunteer event at the site each year
  • Have a sign posted at the site with information about the company’s efforts to protect and restore the property
  • Have logo listed on the property’s webpage
  • Receive verbal recognition at any events or tours held on the property throughout the three year commitment period

Adoption fees are necessary to cover the cost of hosting volunteer events and posting signage. Fees will vary depending on the size of the group, the number of events held each year, and the location of the property.

Workplace Giving

Forterra is a member of EarthShare Washington and also a direct partner in several workplace giving programs. For many donors, workplace giving is their primary strategy for making philanthropic contributions. Please contact us to:

  • Include Forterra as a partner in your workplace giving program

  • Request a representative of Forterra to speak to your employees about how they can make a lasting difference in our region by giving to Forterra
  • Request print or electronic materials about Forterra’s mission, current projects and/or upcoming events and opportunities to distribute to your employees

Corporate Matching
