At OSL, doing greater things extends far beyond “just a job”. Every day, we aim to bring that same passion for our teams, clients and customers into the wider communities where we live and work. OSL Cares is a cooperative effort that sees us put our own skills and resources towards driving meaningful social change.
The OSL Cares program supports three core pillars rooted in who we are, what’s important to us, and where we want to see success: Corporate, People, Community.
IT’S OUR MISSION
TO SUPPORT OTHERS.
Corporate social responsibility means leading by example and demonstrating care and regard by helping others. OSL believes that by sharing our support for causes we care about, we can make significant, impactful contributions. OSL Cares Corporate Programs provide financial support to social causes and charities that align with the values and interests of our people and partners.
BOYS & GIRLS CLUBS
OSL is proud to partner with BGC Canada and various Boys & Girls Clubs throughout America to make an impact on the opportunities and lives of youth. Our corporate partnership includes the creation of Scholarships for Girls on #InternationalDayoftheGirl and localized Back 2 School Campaigns across North America. Together, we’re helping to empower youth to excel and build better futures.
Every year, OSL invites teams across North America to collect and donate food and household items for localized food drives. From coast to coast our teams volunteer their personal time to help impact food shortages for families in need during the holidays. We care deeply about our communities and with everyone’s help, we’re making a difference!

Integrated into so many different communities means we have a lot to care about. By investing in our communities, we help meet their needs and work together to overcome their challenges.
Offered as a one-time support payment from OSL, Community Grants are intended to directly assist local communities and causes our teams care most about. Each year, market leaders nominate local community programs or charities that are in need and making significant community impact.
