CS&L in the Community
Our ongoing philanthropic program, CS&L Cares, provides a platform for our employees to become involved and invested in the community. We encourage our team to provide volunteer hours, in-kind donations, host fundraisers, attend charity events, and more, as a reminder of our responsibility to give back to the community. This initiative was launched in 2014 as part of our 60th anniversary celebration and has become a cornerstone of our firm’s culture.
Giving back to our community
Coordinated by our Team Building Committee and CS&L Cares, we wanted to show support for the Visible Men Academy. VMA’s mission is “to provide boys with strong academic, character, and social education in a nurturing school environment.” A couple of our team members taught 4th and 5th graders about financial literacy. It was a new & exciting opportunity where the kids learned how to write a personal check and create a monthly budget. It was also a chance for the kids to learn about a possible new career path.
We may have some future CPAs!
