Dollars for Donors

This matching-gifts program recognizes employees’ contributions of time and money by enabling them to direct up to $7,000 annually to 501(c)(3) organizations, including a 2-to-1 match to employees supporting civil rights or social action and advocacy efforts.

Grants

Twice yearly, the Foundation considers grant applications from 501(c)(3) organizations with preference toward those whose work is sustainable, inspires growth and in which our employees have significant and recurring involvement. The Foundation gifts, on average, about $60,000 each year in grants ranging from $500 to $2,500. The Foundation has granted $7.7M since its inception in 2013.

Positively impacting our
community

A commitment to service is fundamental to our culture. Whether it is our clients, our colleagues, or our communities, we have dedicated ourselves to leveraging our skills, experience and resources to make a positive impact.

Since we re-emerged as an employee-owned firm just over a decade ago, we’ve volunteered 56,000 hours, worked with 15,000 children, served 20,000 meals and beautified hundreds of community spaces around the world.

Annual Celebration with Service

Each May, we celebrate the anniversary of our reemergence as an independent company with a global “Celebration with Service”—a week of volunteer projects during which we use our talents to benefit others

Since 2010:

Over 11,000 volunteers—employees, their family members and friends—have participated in projects in Atlanta, Beijing, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Dubai, Frankfurt, the Hague, Hong Kong, Houston, Los Angeles, London, Milan, Melbourne, New York, San Francisco, Seoul, Shanghai, Singapore, Sydney, Taipei, Tokyo, Toronto, West Palm Beach, and Wilmington.

Volunteers have engaged with more than 9,000 children, working on a variety of projects including: reading, helping with homework, making arts and crafts and enhancing computer skills.

Over 7,000 collective hours to beautify our local communities by painting public schools in need, cleaning local parks and gardens and sprucing up community centers.

Over 2,000 students and adults have enhanced their job search skills through resume building and mock interviews

More than 3,000 employees have taken part in other community projects, such as spending time with seniors, caring for cats and dogs at a local animal shelter, sorting donated clothes for the less fortunate and helping adults in need with evening community programs.

GREEN INITIATIVE

CLEAR AMBITIONS

We have set ourselves 6 main environmental objectives. They target our water consumption, emissions, waste and advocacy. Going forwards, we will disclose in the annual report our progress

MARKED PROGRESSION

In 2018 we reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 12% compared to the previous year. This was achieved primarily through a reduction in business travel.

SUSTAINABLE OFFICES

Our two largest offices are located in modern buildings respectively rated LEED Gold (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and BREEAM “excellent” for sustainability
