[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Salmon-Safe, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, was founded by Pacific Rivers Council to encourage farmers in the Willamette Valley, Oregon to convert to practices that would protect local salmon runs and their habitats. Salmon-Safe has since expanded to become one of the nation’s leading leading regional eco labels with more than 60,000 acres of farm and urban lands certified in Oregon, Washington, California, and British Columbia. You can find Salmon-Safe labels on wine and other items featured in 300 supermarkets and natural food stores.

Salmon-Safe has increased its ability to work across the West Coast through what they call their “Partner Network”. Established in 2007, the Partner Network consists of place-based conservation organizations as well as collaborating certification organizations. Founding organizations Stewardship PartnersOregon TilthLIVEMarin Organic, Applegate River Watershed Council, NBISand National Fish & Wildlife Foundation have been joined by Vinea and Trout Unlimited.

Glassworks, Inc. Principal, Tish Oye, was honored to be invited to participate, “I was impressed by everyone’s energy, creativity and ability to express our concerns to Senator Murray; and in response, Senator Murray was quite supportive and seemed to understand the issues that she will take back with her to DC.”

Socially responsible companies like Glassworks know that businesses can only thrive when community social programs and non-profit organizations are supported in their work to improve society as a whole. Our design partners and referral partners often share this desire to connect and share with our extended communities. To facilitate further opportunities to collaborate with industry partners in our social mission, Glassworks has developed a unique referral program.

When Glassworks receives a referral that becomes a job, we donate $50 to the non-profit of the referrer’s choosing. Over the years, our partners have helped us support a variety of local and national organizations including Make-A-Wish Foundation, Seattle Symphony, American Red Cross, and many more. Last quarter, John Adams of Stuart Silk Architect helped us donate to Pratt Fine Arts Center, taking advantage of a triple-match opportunity to fund their Wood Working Program, after sending us a lead on an art glass partition wall at a dentist office. Jennifer Hayden of Pental Granite & Marble asked us to share in her love of animals by donating to ASPCA, after referring a local software company to us for a glass transaction counter. Thank you John and Jennifer for your generous community support and for entrusting Glassworks with your contacts.

If you have a referral opportunity to share with Glassworks, please contact us. If we are able to convert the lead into a job, your generosity will be shared with a community organization of your choice.

Blog[GoodWorks]

Some years ago we established a way to thank clients who refer other clients to us. When a past client refers a new client to us, we make a donation to a non-profit organization on the referring client’s behalf. We have made donations to diverse organizations like the Make-a-Wish Foundation, Seattle Symphony, and St Andrews Housing Group, to name just a few.

Recently Like many other small businesses, we have been negatively impacted by the current economy; however we have been fortunate to keep this program active. We have had wonderful clients who continue to refer more wonderful clients to us. We recently made donations on our clients’ behalf to Kentuckiana Children’s Center, Seattle Asian Art Museum and the American Red Cross. We are happy to continually support non-profit organizations that contribute to the richness and well being of our communities.
