Praxity participant firms frequently distinguish themselves not just through their business achievements and client service, but also through their engagement with the communities they work alongside – often contributing imaginative support or funds for local organisations or charities.
As we’re keen to share news of these initiatives with a wider audience, we’ll now be publishing reports of these charitable and community activities here on our news channel – promoting it actively through our monthly In The Loop email feature.
Here we celebrate some of the most recent activity we’ve heard about. You can contact us with your own news and ideas on firstname.lastname@example.org.
To celebrate 150 years in business, Albert Goodman’s Partners and staff have been busy fundraising and volunteering throughout the year and have raised more than £6,800 for six deserving charities.
Aronson Foundation’s Denim Fridays allows Aronson employees to wear denim in the office on Fridays by providing a small contribution towards its Charity of the Month. The Foundation matches the funds collected each month (up to $1,000) for the charity, which is nominated by employees who have a personal involvement. Recently they supported A Wider Circle and Shepherd’s Table.
To raise awareness among local women that heart disease is their #1 health threat, Dixon Hughes Goodman and the DHG Foundation encouraged employees and partners to ‘go red’ earlier this year, raising $6,000 for the American Heart Association for education and research around heart disease and stroke.
DHG has also been promoting and recognizing inclusion and diversity across the firm, celebrating Black History Month and Women’s History Month with a campaign highlighting DHG’s people and their stories, and promoting discussion about careers and flexibility.
Garbutt + Elliott recently revealed the beneficiaries of its fundraising and support for the current year. Having reached last year’s fundraising goal of £15,000, two Yorkshire charities have been chosen as the firm’s charity partners this year – York Against Cancer and the Leeds Children’s Hospital Appeal.
