We are committed to building strong communities 

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. 

Sustainable business practices

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 FY19, the Crowe Foundation, local offices, and the firm made combined charitable contributions totaling $1.7 million.

Where our charitable contributions go 

Volunteer investment program grants

We provide grants for eligible organizations where our people volunteer 30 hours or more annually. 

Team volunteer investment program grants 

We provide grants to organizations where three or more Crowe individuals volunteer together, as well as match funds raised by teams participating in walks, bikes, runs, or bowl-a-thons.  

Board member match grants 

We offer a $3-to-$1 match of the personal financial contributions of individuals who serve on not-for-profit boards.

Volunteerism can be part of the work day 

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.

Community service is key to how we build teams

When colleagues come together to volunteer, we not only support our communities but also build camaraderie.

Across offices, we organize group service events, such as building homes, mentoring students, cleaning up parks, and participating in charity walks and runs.

We also hold virtual volunteer projects, giving our many remote team members the opportunity to volunteer when and wherever it’s most convenient for them.

Volunteerism is one of our favorite ways we celebrate achievements

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.
