RSM US Foundation 5K Donates $225,000 to Charity
RSM’s long-standing focus on stewardship benefits tomorrow’s business leaders
Following the RSM US Foundation 5K in the early morning hours along the Las Vegas strip, RSM US LLP (“RSM”) – the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market – announced, that the firm’s partners and principals raised $225,000 for Boys and Girls Clubs, Folds of Honor, Girl Scouts of the USA, Teach for America and Three Square Food Bank.
The 5K was part of RSM’s biennial owners meeting, which was last held in Las Vegas in 2015. The firm’s inaugural 5K was held during the 2015 meeting to commemorate the launch of the RSM US Foundation, which is focused on building tomorrow’s middle market leaders by supporting programs focused on education, as well as organizations serving youth in the areas of hunger, housing and health in the communities where RSM employees live and work.
“We are honored to be able to give back to the community through the RSM US Foundation and other charitable initiatives,” said Doug Opheim, chairman of the RSM US Foundation Board of Directors. “Our partners and principals really embrace the opportunity to devote a few hours of our meeting to support the community and celebrate our core value of stewardship. It’s a great chance for us to team up in support of our country’s future business leaders.”
RSM’s focus on stewardship is also highlighted each year through the firm’s annual Volunteer Day during which thousands of RSM employees, partners, principals and friends participate in hundreds of volunteer activities each year, and the firm’s Birdies Fore Love program through RSM Classic, a PGA TOUR event that raised over $1.5 million last year – contributing to the $7 million raised by the RSM Classic since the tournament’s inception in 2010.
