The Crowe Foundation awards charitable grants that align with the volunteer involvement and passions of our people – organizations like the National Association of Black Accountants, Inc. (NABA). NABA focuses on addressing the professional needs of its members and building leaders that shape the future of the accounting and finance profession. Thanks to a charitable grant from the Crowe Foundation, NABA is getting additional financial support for its mission. “Traditionally, the foundation’s charitable grants have gone to organizations where we see volunteerism all coming from one office or one business unit,” explained Crystal Adams (Off-site), Crowe’s corporate social responsibility leader. “With NABA, the volunteerism crosses the firm’s entire footprint and multiple BUs.” Across the firm last year, more than 40 Crowe individuals across the firm provided more than 600 hours of service to NABA and its local chapters. “We already have a great relationship with NABA, but providing NABA with a Crowe Foundation charitable grant allows us to elevate our presence within the organization,” explained Herschel Frierson (Indianapolis), who serves as a NABA national director.
