JLG Gives Back
We are really, really lucky. For nearly three decades, we have had the good fortune to work with and for the best people, on the best projects, in the best communities. And we believe it's our responsibility to share the love. So, while we put our heart and soul into everything we do at JLG - when an organization needs our time, money, or our JLGness outside what is expected in our "normal" day-to-day roles, JLGives back.
Organizations supported in 2020
If design is our soul, our philanthropic program, JLGives Back, is our heart. In addition to our commitment to the Architecture 1+, in which we donate 1% of our architectural billings to not-for-project work, our JLGives Back program has allowed us to host collegiate video competitions, bring architecture (and LEGOs) into elementary, middle, and high school classrooms, author a children’s picture book, build Little Free Libraries, and clean up our communities.
In 2010, JLG donated our millionth dollar through JLGives Back
