Year-End Giving

“If you think in terms of a year, plant a seed; if in terms of ten years, plant trees; if in terms of 100 years, teach the people.” Confucius

On behalf of our clients, at year-end we show our appreciation by contributing to an organization whose mission and work support a cause that we feel is relevant in our world.

Listed below are organizations that we have contributed to in our year-end giving campaign. We have progressed from the short-term view of planting trees to the long-term view of teaching and empowering people to improve their lives.

  • In 2013, The Seeing Eye (SeeingEye.org) was the recipient of our annual contribution.  Established in 1929, The Seeing Eye is the oldest guide dog school in the world.  The non-profit provides specially bred and trained dogs to guide people who are blind and offers lifetime assistance for each Seeing Eye team.
  • In 2012, our search lead us to Communities In Schools (www.communities inschools.org), an organization that provides students with support thus empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.
  • In 2011, we selected Jobs for the Future (JFF.org), an organization whose mission is to identify, develop, and promote education and workforce strategies that expand opportunities for those who are struggling to advance in America today.
  • In 2010, we made a contribution to America’s Promise Alliance, an organization that focuses on improving lives and changing outcomes for children by promoting education.
  • In 2009, mindful of the increasing population of hungry Americans, we donated money to Feeding America, an organization that provides food to more than 25 million low-income people facing hunger in the United States, including more than 9 million children and 3 million seniors.
  • In 2008, we sponsored a project through WaterPartners International that helped several communities in Bangladesh build the infrastructure to provide clean water to their people.
  • In 2007, we initiated our annual sustainability giving by donating to the Arbor Day Foundation, and planting over 25,000 trees.
