Our Why

As part of our commitment to serve the communities of the Northwest, we’ve established the John L. Scott Foundation. Funded by the contributions of associates and employees, the John L. Scott Foundation is dedicated to ensuring that children in our communities receive quality medical care, regardless of their family’s ability to pay.

As a company, our core value is  “Living Life as a Contribution™”. Through our sponsored events, the John L. Scott Foundation raises millions of dollars for more than 15 different children’s hospitals in the Northwest.

In addition to our fundraising efforts, John L. Scott Real Estate pays for all administrative costs for the John L. Scott Foundation, ensuring that 100% of donations are used to provide care for children and their families.

Together, we are working to make tough times a little easier for families in need.
