Firm celebrates diamond anniversary by giving back to the community in 60 ways
Seiler LLP, one of the country’s leading advisory, tax, and accounting firms in the high-net-worth space, celebrates its 60th anniversary this year. The firm has chosen to mark this milestone in a unique way: engaging its employees in a year-long giving and volunteering campaign called “60 Ways to Give Back.”
“Philanthropy and community service have been a part of our DNA since the founding of the firm,” says George Marinos, Seiler LLP’s CEO. “If you look at how many of our clients – individuals and businesses – are highly active in philanthropy, it’s only natural for us to give back to the community as a way of commemorating our anniversary.”
“We’ve always had a generous, giving culture,” comments Lupita McLane, Seiler LLP’s director of human resources. “Earlier this year, we had great success with a month-long team fitness competition with
the prizes being gifts to charitable organizations.” The firm provided a fitness tracking device to each of its 200+ employees who were then split into six teams. The teams with the highest average daily steps count earned the right to give substantial donations to the charities of their choice. The beneficiaries were organizations focused on health-related matters, children and education, veterans, endangered species and local food banks.
In a clothing drive, the firm collected 33 gently used winter coats for those in need. The firm has plans for more goods drives, such as children’s school supplies, and multiple volunteer and team-building events. Throughout the year, Seiler LLP will be tracking its activity with a goal of reaching 60 ways of giving back to local and regional organizations.
