The RSM US Foundation was pleased to recently donate $258,000 to four nonprofit organizations – Boys and Girls Clubs of America, Girl Scouts USA, Junior Achievement and The Rosen Foundation – during the RSM US LLP (“RSM”) biennial owners’ meeting at Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando.
Funds were raised through the meeting’s “bold step” challenge, which promoted health and wellbeing during the event. Winners of the bold step challenge received donations from the RSM US Foundation to their local Birdies Fore Love charitable efforts. In addition, RSM owners attending the meeting donated 1,300 pairs of shoes and socks to an Orlando-based nonprofit for children in need.
The RSM US Foundation was established in 2014 as part of RSM’s giving strategy and to support the firm’s value of stewardship, which the firm defines as leaving things better than they found them. A tax exempt public charity, the foundation is dedicated to building tomorrow’s middle market business leaders.
“I’m continuously blown away by the generosity of our people and by the owners of our firm,” said Joe Adams, managing partner and CEO with RSM US LLP. “We knew our owners’ meeting would provide us with an opportunity to support the local community, as well as other nonprofits aligned with the RSM US Foundation’s mission, but we had no idea how much our people would open their hearts and their wallets during this event.”
“This event is just one example of how those with RSM truly live our value of stewardship,” said Doug Opheim, chief financial officer and chairman of the Board of Directors of the RSM US Foundation. “At RSM, stewardship is one of our core values, but it’s also something that we demonstrate every day in the 87 cities nationwide where our people live and work.”
