Our company embraces the culture of the communities where we fly, and we routinely participate in events such as charity drives and educational support campaigns. We see ourselves as a part of these communities, which is why we feel it's our responsibility to help when they're in need or suffering from disasters by donating our time, money, and talents.
Corporate, Employee & Customer Philanthropic Efforts
Our charitable efforts encompass the passions of our employees and customers, and contribute to the overall well-being of our communities.
Alaska Air Group has the opportunity to donate in-kind travel to nonprofit organizations for fundraising efforts or to help reduce staff travel costs. In 2013, we supported more than 1,300 different organizations.
We are focused on ways to meaningfully expose youths to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM)14 careers through targeted giving, mentorship, and other programs. By developing our educational giving strategy and increasing our focus on youth and education, we hope to improve educational outcomes by developing resources, mentors, internships, education and leadership support.
Economic Opportunities for the Sea-Tac Workforce
Alaska Air Group believes in fair pay and benefits for all workers, and we respect every worker and the job they do. We strive to work closely with our labor unions and business partners on pay rates and benefits that reflect the job market. We also recognize that income inequality is a serious problem across the country. Proposition 1, targeted at the city of Sea-Tac, pushed this issue to the forefront locally.
