Purpose at Sequoia

Elevate the Everyday.

It's What We Do

Sequoia embraces the guiding principle of giving back, and we know much of our success stems from relationships with the communities we serve. It's not a task or a reminder to make an effort, it's in our DNA. It's what we do.

That’s why every Sequoia team member receives FOUR paid personal PURPOSE DAYS each year to volunteer with organizations of their choice. Each region also participates in a team purpose day to give back to our local communities as a group. In addition to donating our time, we also regularly fundraise and hold donation drives for local communities and individuals in need. 

Organizations where our team members volunteer include, but are not limited to: hospitals, outreach programs, food banks, shelters, parks, and neighborhood development associations.
