Becoming a leading corporate citizen means investing in our communities. It’s what we like to call building value with values. Through charitable giving, volunteerism, and community service, we encourage our people to give back in any way they can.
We’re passionate about supporting the causes our people care about most
In support of our long history of substantial corporate giving, we established the Crowe Foundation to focus our charitable giving and align contributions with volunteer efforts. While most organizations’ foundations accept grant requests from not-for-profit organizations, the Crowe Foundation only accepts requests from our people on behalf of organizations they support. Anyone in the firm can apply for a charitable grant.
In FY20, the Crowe Foundation, local offices, and the firm made combined charitable contributions totaling $1.5 million.

We believe it’s important for our people to be involved in their communities, both for the virtue of helping others and for the added benefit of personal growth and development.
Our community service policy allows individuals to participate in up to eight hours of community service activities per month without taking paid time off.
When colleagues come together to volunteer, we not only support our communities but also build camaraderie.
Our virtual volunteer projects give employees the opportunity to give back in ways that are both meaningful and safe.
During our work with Missing Maps, an open project to map vulnerable places in the developing world, Crowe employees and their families were trained to map remote parts of Africa, Latin America, and Asia for first responders. For our StoryTime initiative, about 120 Crowe employees read and recorded children’s stories for the Boys and Girls Club.
We marked our 75th anniversary with a community service challenge – volunteer 75,000 hours as a firm. Ultimately, we far exceeded our goal and volunteered more than 82,000 hours as a firm over a 12-month period.
