CHICAGO – (November 17, 2022) – RSM US LLP (“RSM”) – the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market, and title sponsor of The RSM Classic – was pleased to recently present a check for $6,761,566 million to the Davis Love Foundation to support nonprofit organizations focused on children and families in the cities where RSM’s people live and work. The funds were raised through RSM’s employee-led Power of Love campaign and the on-course Birdies Fore Love competition with the PGA TOUR in connection with the 13th annual RSM Classic, a PGA TOUR event that takes place at Sea Island, Georgia.
Through Power of Love, RSM’s people, backed by generous donations from clients and the firm’s communities as well as a matching donation from the RSM US Foundation, raise funds to support the foundation’s mission to build tomorrow’s middle market leaders through charitable donations focused on enhancing educational outcomes and the quality of life for children and families. Each year the program supports more than 100 charities across the U.S., Canada, India and El Salvador.
“Stewardship has been one of RSM’s core values since our firm was founded 97 years ago,” said Doug Opheim, chief financial officer with RSM US LLP and chair of the RSM US Foundation. “I am in awe of this year’s Power of Love leaders Victoria Parks, Krayton Koski and Marit Plowman for harnessing the caring nature of our people across the U.S., Canada, India and El Salvador, as well as many of our clients, to support the communities where we live and work.”
RSM’s Birdies Fore Love – an on-course competition in conjunction with the PGA TOUR –was announced in 2018 to recognize and award weekly winners throughout the fall, as well as the top three finishers in total birdies (or better) from all fall TOUR events. This on-course competition further supports those in need and is currently scheduled to continue through the fall portion of the 2025-26 FedEx Cup Regular Season.
“Our people, clients and friends; the PGA TOUR and the Davis Love Foundation have embraced the Power of Love, making it an annual tradition that we all look forward to supporting each year through The RSM Classic,” said Andy Bosman, chief marketing officer with RSM US LLP. “’The caring and commitment to giving back to those in need reflects RSM’s core value of stewardship, and enables us to help make the world a better place. We’re humbled to be able to work with the TOUR, the Davis Love Foundation and others to support the community.”
As in years past, winning players from this year’s RSM Birdies Fore Love program are encouraged to designate the funds to charitable organizations dedicated to building tomorrow’s middle market leaders through programs that support education, as well as organizations committed to improving the lives of youth through a focus on hunger, housing, and health – all of which aligns with the RSM US Foundation’s areas of focus.
“RSM is a great title sponsor for The RSM Classic, and a dedicated advocate for the Golden Isles community,” said Davis Love III, PGA Tour professional, Team RSM member, 2022 U.S. Presidents Cup Team Captain and Sea Island resident. “RSM’s people demonstrate their core values of respect, integrity, teamwork, excellence and stewardship every day. I’m honored to work with them to help our communities care for those in need and to continue the PGA TOUR’s tradition of giving back.”
