At Garnet & Gold, we are committed to conducting our business in a socially responsible and ethical manner. We recognize our responsibility to contribute positively to the community that supports us.
Garnet & Gold has been a valued part of the Florida State experience for over 40 years. We are committed to strengthening our community bonds with both Florida State University and the Tallahassee community. Our stores allow customers to connect and tap into shared passions for both sports and our great university in general. We have a storied history of community investment. For more than 40 years, Garnet & Gold has consistently supported numerous charities and initiatives that are doing critical work in our community. We recognize our responsibility to contribute positively to the community that supports us. We regularly donate a portion of proceeds from the sale of designated goods to charities of our choice. From supporting domestic violence victims to fighting homelessness and hunger, our community’s charitable partners are chosen to align with the core values of Garnet & Gold.
Several years ago we implemented a Round-Up program. The program is simple... when Garnet & Gold customers shop at any of our three Tallahassee locations, they have the opportunity to round up their payment to the nearest dollar and consider adding an additional donation. Through our Round-Up Program, we are positively impacting lives everyday... a few cents at a time. In past years, Garnet & Gold and its generous customers have been able to fund thousands of dollars for local services and community outreach programs. The Round-Up program reminds people of how far a little generosity can go toward improving a person's life – and Garnet & Gold wants to be a part of contributing to that change.
This support takes the form of charitable partnerships and employee volunteerism. Our past recipients have included:
- FSU Veterans Alliance
- FSU Dance Marathon supporting Children's Miracle Network
- Animal Shelter Foundation
- Meals on Wheels
- Big Bend Hospice
- Covenant Hospice
- The Ronald McDonald House
- The Refuge House
- ...and many other organizations.
