2023 Employee Impact Initiative Winners
We asked employees to share with us the non-profits that you felt were worthy of investment and aligned with our three pillars of impact: Bridge to Education, Bridge to Financial Wellness, Bridge to Healthy Communities. In order to determine the winners, we looked at alignment with our pillars, their Charity Navigator scores and reputation as well as the overall endorsement from the employee. It was also important that the winners represent our geographic diversity. We received 65 nominations from across the firm and now, we are now pleased to share the winners!
