Community Engagement:

We believe that we have a responsibility to be active in our community.

Fuse’s community engagement program – led by our Community Engagement Committee – fosters charitable giving, advocacy, volunteerism and leadership. Our commitment to social responsibility is a reflection of our employees’ values, which makes working at Fuse a more rewarding and fulfilling experience. Fuse is also a member of Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility.

Services For & Contributions To Non-Profits:

Since its launch in 1995, Fuse has provided discounted or pro bono services to non-profit organizations.

In addition, Fuse organizes an annual Holiday Artist Collaboration with artists that have included Bigfoot, Mikey Welsh, Kenzo Minami and Suiko. The program results in a donation to a non-profit and commemorates the gift by commissioning an artist to make a limited edition print that is given to clients and colleagues during the holiday season.

Non-profits Fuse has partnered with for these efforts have included:

  • Boarding for Breast Cancer
  • Athlete Recovery Fund
  • Do Something
  • Burton Snowboard’s Chill Foundation
  • Drums and Disabilities
  • The Make-a-Wish Foundation
  • Stoked Mentoring
  • Reverb

Volunteerism:

To encourage community service, Fuse offers paid time-off for employees to volunteer with any charitable organization of their choice.

Fuse coordinates monthly group volunteer opportunities, and supports individuals’ choices for community work, whether it’s on-the-ground tasks helping others in need or serving on non-profit boards and committees.
