Employees in the Community
Odlum Brown believes that supporting our communities is not just a platitude or a catchphrase; philanthropy and community involvement truly permeate our people-focused organization. Support comes in many forms, and Odlum Brown team members walk the talk by showing up and supporting their communities in a variety of ways.
Odlum Brown has proudly supported United Way dating back to the 1930s, when one of our founders, Victor Odlum, was the first Board Chair of the Vancouver Welfare Foundation (now known as United Way of the Lower Mainland). United Way of the Lower Mainland serves the needs of our local community by empowering residents to improve their neighbourhoods, responding to emerging community issues, providing outreach programs for youth and seniors and igniting a desire to improve the place we call home. + Learn More
