Our Outreach Program
Sonora Quest Laboratories/Laboratory Sciences of Arizona (SQL/LSA) proudly supports several organizations that share our values and are committed to ongoing research, education, and community assistance. We are committed to investing in the communities we serve, and we utilize corporate giving, in-kind laboratory services, and employee volunteerism to do so collectively. We are proud to invest in our communities by:
- Donating 1% of our operating income to key Arizona charities
- Providing in-kind, no-charge laboratory services to charities that serve the most vulnerable communities and underserved populations
- Volunteering hundreds of hours each year at several local charities

Outreach in Action
SQL/LSA wants to inspire others through action. Practicing corporate social responsibility is an essential part of our Mission, Vision, and Values. Our employees serve on charitable boards, sponsor events, donate services, volunteer time, fundraise, and take steps to truly be champions of our community. By attending and supporting dozens of events throughout the year, we make meaningful contributions to our community and forge strong connections with those we serve.
Employee volunteerism begins at the top, with all senior leaders actively serving on charitable boards and our team supporting major charitable events.
David A. Dexter - President & CEO
“A CEO has a moral and ethical responsibility to create social value in the communities in which we live and work.”
Several volunteer opportunities are presented to our 3,800 employees each year including food packaging, community clean-ups, event support, and so much more! Through our efforts, our outreach team volunteers hundreds of hours in the community each year.
We exemplify leadership through our actions. Beginning with our CEO, who serves as Board Chair of CEOs Against Cancer Arizona Chapter. Additionally, every member of our Senior Leadership Team actively serves on a charitable organization board and supports charitable events annually.
Our employee fundraising program focuses on supporting three select organizations every year. By utilizing various fundraising strategies such as online auctions, raffles, and T-shirt sales, our employees successfully raise up to $80,000 dollars each year to benefit these foundations.
