Following up on a commitment to “help us help the charity of your choice,” Weiss & Company hit the ground running this week on a new program designed to benefit charitable organizations selected by clients.
The effort began at the company’s 50th anniversary gala in early September, where guests were asked to nominate worthy charities to be recipients of holiday donations from Weiss. Each month from now until year’s end, the company will make donations to a select group of the nominated charities. Donations will be highlighted monthly on the company’s website through the holidays.
Today, managing partner Dan Fortman announced the “charities of choice” for September. The lineup includes:
- American Cancer Society
- American Diabetes Association
- Avenues to Independence, a Park Ridge-based social service organization dedicated to helping people with disabilities
- Chicago Food Depository, a longstanding non-profit that fights hunger throughout the city through soup kitchens, food pantries and other venues
October’s selections will be announced mid-month. In the meantime, keep an eye on www.weisscpa.com for updates on this effort and other news from Weiss & Company LLP.
