RSM Canada, the leading global provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market, is pleased to announce the kick-off of the firm’s 2020 Birdies Fore Love charitable giving campaign. The kick-off will take place during RSM Canada’s Volunteer Month, which runs through August.
The Birdies Fore Love campaign sees RSM employees in both Canada and the United States raise funds for charitable organizations dedicated to enhancing educational outcomes or the quality of life for children and families. In support of Birdies Fore Love, RSM Canada offices throughout the country will volunteer and raise funds for select local charitable organizations that align with RSM’s core value of stewardship.
Red Deer’s firm has selected Boys & Girls Club of Red Deer and District in support of Birdies Fore Love. The Boys & Girls Club of Red Deer and District empowers youth by fostering a community of support. Their network seeks to instill young people with confidence in their unique identities and abilities, while providing safe environments to learn and grow. They aim to address the unique individual needs of youth in their community and apply a collective, unified approach to all of their programs and services that inspire youth empowerment.
RSM Canada successfully contributed $207,000 to their selected charities in 2019 during the firm’s second year participating in the Birdies Fore Love campaign. This year’s fundraising goal is expected to be raised through numerous virtual staff fundraising events, and also from external donors. Through the RSM US Foundation, RSM Canada will be able to access additional grants when fundraising goals are met, in addition to a grant that financially matches the hours employees contribute throughout the month of August, when staff and their families will be able to support these charities through virtual volunteer activities.
To support RSM Canada in achieving its fundraising goals, we invite you to visit youthhq.ca/rsmcanada for a list of local events running through the end of September.
