For years, Quiksilver has been actively engaged in charitable activities, both locally and globally. Quiksilver has worked with and continues to work with a number of these great organizations that are being supported through SIMA and the Stokes Me fundraiser. Quiksilver recognizes the concept of corporate social responsibility and benevolence. We want our philanthropic work to have impact beyond what we do as one company and believe that we can do this by coordinating the support of other organizations and individuals. The Quiksilver Foundation was formed to bring all of Quiksilver’s charitable giving under one umbrella. The Foundation commenced its activities as a private foundation in October of 2004 and continues to be the non-profit leader for the surf-industry.
