One of our core values and passions is our commitment to the communities. For our firm that’s not just a positioning statement. It’s a part of everything we do. We back that up with time and other resources in the following ways:
- Each year we take on 2-3 pure pro bono projects. These are causes recommended by our staff. The shareholders and staff then sift through the many proposals to choose the projects for that year.
- Since we work with many nonprofits, our policy is to give every one a minimum of 10% in pro bono time. That time is added above their paid budget and allows us to give them much more value for their money.
- Our staff members are not only encouraged to get involved in the community — it’s a requirement. We all take leadership positions in at least two non profits or causes. Most do more.
- We won’t take any new client assignment that conflicts with our values. The “values check” is a standard part of the way we do business.
