AAFCPAs’ #GivingTuesday Employee Match Donates Over $32K to Charities
In 2020, AAFCPAs celebrated our fifth annual participation in #GivingTuesday, a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world.
Collectively, AAFCPAs’ 240+ team members and our Charitable Foundation’s Employee Matching Gifts program donated over $32,000 to mission driven nonprofits during the 2020 #GivingTuesday drive! AAFCPAs’ five-year donation total for the #GivingTuesday movement is over $115,000!
Great Minds | Great Hearts
For #GivingTuesday 2020, AAFCPAs matched employee-directed gifts 1:1 (100%) to any charitable nonprofit from November 9 through Giving Tuesday, December 1. AAFCPAs’ Employee Matching Gifts program is typically 50% to client beneficiaries. This enhanced match period encourages our 240+ employees to be as generous as possible to organizations that support causes about which they are passionate.
“Great Minds | Great Hearts embodies our whole culture. It grounds us,” said Carla McCall, AAFCPAs’ Managing Partner. “We are here to help our clients, but we also want to give back to our community. It’s important to our team members who really want to be with a company that truly cares about their personal passions. We are happy to support them with our Matching Gifts program.”
In addition to gifts of cash, team members again participated in a toy drive collecting gifts for communities in need, including educational toys for some of Greater Boston’s youngest children in need. This year’s gift drive was completed virtually, with team members selecting, purchasing, and sending gifts directly to the Center from an online wish list.
#GivingTuesday is the Tuesday after Thanksgiving in the United States. On December 1, 2020, the whole world came together to show kindness and generosity by giving voice, time, money, goods, and more to support communities and causes. Whether it was making someone smile, helping a neighbor, or showing up for an issue, on #GivingTuesday, you transformed how we think about and act on generosity all year long.
