Giving Back

When your career is about making the world a better place, it’s a pretty natural leap to better your own backyard, too. SmithGroupJJR is committed to improving our communities whether through our work, our resources or our time. It’s listed right in our core values—“We have an obligation to contribute to our communities”—and it’s something every employee here learns on day one. 

Contribute, we do, and happily. As a company and

as individuals, we give generously — renovating affordable housing, raising money for food banks, building playgrounds, cleaning up beaches, digging deep to help out urban farms, helping students, and running, walking and cycling on behalf of numerous other excellent causes. And that’s just a sampling.

Whether working on behalf of a client or our own community, we’re delighted to give back from the many blessings we receive.
