Sterling Heritage believes that giving back is an essential part of being a responsible corporate citizen. Since our incorporation in 2000, Sterling Heritage has continuously given a portion of its income to organizations that strive to help those in need and change the future for the better. We recognize the importance of improving community sustainability and continue to support organizations that improve the quality of life for those in need. Sterling Heritage supports organizations that share our commitment to equal opportunity and diversity without regard to age, race, color, sex, sexual preference, national origin, ancestry, religion, marital status, or physical or mental impairment.

Giving back takes various forms, starting with financial. Sterling Heritage supports organizations that make a positive difference in the lives of our neighbors. We contribute funds to numerous non-profit organizations, and Sterling Heritage Solutions provides grants every year.

We also give back by volunteering. In fact, our employees donate hundreds of hours every year! These volunteer efforts ensure that we are standing by our neighbors whenever, and however, they most need us---by serving as a mentor…making strides against childhood cancer…collecting clothing for needy children…serving food at a shelter…the list goes on and on.

Our commitment to the community goes far beyond the organizations listed below. We constantly seek new ways to benefit a variety of organizations and are committed to aiding those who aim to shape social progress, economic success, and environmental excellence for the better.
