Charities We Love
A look into the organizations we support and how we contribute to our local community
Here at Skeie's Jewelers, we feel as though we have a responsibility to our community. We are proud to provide charitable support to the organizations that make our society a better place. It is our chance to give back to the community that has supported us for over 100 years.
We also take necessary steps toward ensuring our gemstones are responsibly sourced from mining communities around the globe that actively benefit by improved economic, social, and environmental conditions from mining projects.
Marcus Mariota saw the positive power of sport firsthand. Driven to create change and use his platform as a professional athlete, Marcus established Motiv8 Foundation during his rookie year in 2015. Since launching, Motiv8 has awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars towards healthy lifestyle programming and continues to fulfill its mission through signature programs, strategic partnerships, and fundraising initiatives.
Skeie's Jewelers is proud to be partnered with the Motiv8 Foundation, supporting the youth of troubled neighborhoods and backgrounds around Oregon, Hawaii, and Nevada. To promote the foundation, we teamed up with Marcus and his wife to design custom, one-of-a-kind Oregon "O" rings. We pledged to donate 100% of our proceeds from our Oregon jewelry collection to Marcus Mariota's Motiv8 Foundation.
