Corporate social responsibility is a cornerstone of our culture at Onex. Our firm, together with the companies we own and in which we invest, play important roles in our communities. We believe strongly in giving back to those communities through corporate social responsibility initiatives and philanthropy. We encourage all of the companies we own, or in which we invest, to be responsible corporate citizens and to engage constructively with their communities. We also believe that these initiatives engage employees, strengthen firm culture and have a positive impact on society.
We encourage and support Onex employees to be charitable, by donating their time and through financial contributions, to important causes in our communities. Onex team members across our Toronto, New York, New Jersey, Boston and London offices directly participate in local charitable causes and community-based initiatives. Through our Onex Cares program, we match employees’ financial donations to charities of their choice. Many Onex team members, both senior and junior, also volunteer in leadership roles of numerous charitable boards and committees. Below are a few examples of our community giving and participation.
