Social Responsibility

Environmental, Social & Corporate Governance (ESG)

We believe it is important to consider the environmental, social and corporate governance implications of the investments we make across the world.  We feel strongly about sustainability and responsible investing and are a signatory to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment.

Community Impact

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

To strengthen our commitment to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion, we have entered into strategic partnerships with the following organizations to help further our goals. Rainier Scholars is a 12 year program that offers a pathway to college graduation for low-income students of color by providing intensive academic preparation, leadership development, and personalized support. The Robert Toigo Foundation provides MBA graduate merit fellowships, career preparation, and career outreach programs to underrepresented talent in finance and related industries.

Corporate Giving and Community Investment

We care about improving the world we live in.
Whether through our financial contributions, or the investment of our time, we have a strong commitment to building a better world for future generations. Beyond the donations that we make as an organization, Silver Creek matches 100% of the charitable donations made by our employees, up to $5,000 per employee per year. This ensures that the impact of our dollars are amplified in the areas that we care the most about.

On their own, our employees work hard to make a difference by donating their time and talent to non-profits and charitable organizations.  As a team, we seek opportunities to work together to raise money for specific causes and events every year.


Some of the areas we focus on include:

  • Health and human services
  • At-risk youth
  • Education
  • Environmental conservation
  • Arts and culture
  • Urban parks
Community Impact Events

Outdoor Volunteer Opportunity Brings Employees Together At Local Urban Farm
Silver Creek employees continue to give back by volunteering at Yes Farm during the COVID-19 pandemic. Silver Creek was led by Black Farmers Collective, a group of urban food system activists working to reclaim a little more than two acres of land in Yesler Terrace that is dedicated to providing opportunities to improve the health of our communities through all aspects of the food system. {To find out more about Yes Farm –}

Supporting Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center
Silver Creek is all in for Obliteride. Obliteride funds research in the areas of greatest need at Fred Hutch. From Basic Sciences and Public Health to deep exploration into organ-specific cancers and immunotherapy, Obliteride has funded over $12 million in research over the past four years. Our team walked, volunteered or chose to ride one of three routes, ranging from 25 to 100 miles. 100 percent of all rider-raised dollars went towards supporting lifesaving cancer research at Fred Hutch. {To find out more, check out Fred Hutch Obliteride –}

Offsetting Our Carbon Footprint
Climate change poses a real threat to our region and planet. Silver Creek partnered with the Evergreen Carbon Capture program to make a difference and help offset carbon emissions through local tree planting projects. Through the program, we were able to plant the very trees that will offset our carbon emissions at the Cheasty Greenbelt, a local restoration site. Since 2010, the Evergreen Carbon Capture program has planted almost 35,000 trees, which will sequester over 264,000 tons of carbon. {To find out more, check out Evergreen Carbon Capture –}

Silver Creek Closes Up Shop For A Day To Help Local Shelter
Silver Creek has always been committed to offering a helping hand to the community, but firm executives recently decided to donate to larger projects. The Seattle-based alternative investment manager closed its doors for a day in November, and its 38 employees helped renovate a local shelter for women and children escaping domestic violence.
