Explore opportunities for community and social impact

We practice stewardship and sustainability as top priorities – and we encourage our people to do the same.

At Crowe, we’re committed to serving our people, our clients, our profession, and our communities in a sustainable way while continuing to build a thriving professional services firm.

That’s why we encourage our people to get involved in our efforts to make the world a better place, from volunteerism to influencing our internal culture.

It’s cool to care

Our purpose statement is Shaping Your Better Tomorrow. Together. Today.™ It’s the standard we live by, and it reflects what’s important to us. Our diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) and environmental, social, and governance efforts are at the top of our priority list. We care about people, which is why we’re committed to creating a better world through intentional action.

Our purpose and values

Join a company that cares

Following are just a few of the ways we’re working with our people to make the world a better place.

Endowments at HBCUs

As a primary focus, Crowe has established significant endowments to fund scholarships for accounting students at two historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs): Florida A&M and North Carolina A&T. By nurturing the education of Black accounting students, these endowments can help address dual priorities in our profession.


Our enthusiasm for volunteering is a year-round commitment. Extending directly from our four core values, our Stewardship Ambassador network inspires and expands volunteerism firmwide through mentoring and coaching. To further entrench a volunteer ethic into our culture, we are incorporating volunteer opportunities into business unit meetings and conferences as well as our DE&I activities. We also encourage participation in national efforts. For example, in fall 2023, Crowe volunteers participated in “Out of the Darkness Walks” to raise funds and awareness for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, an organization for which Crowe CEO Mark Baer serves as a member of the national board.

Supplier diversity

One of our DE&I aspirations is to increase our annual sourceable spend with diverse suppliers to 25% by 2025. To provide a framework for accomplishing this goal and guide our spending decisions, in May 2021 we engaged the services of a Black, certified minority business enterprise that specializes in creating best-in-class supplier diversity programs. Crowe established a sourcing team and created a standardized process for evaluating and selecting suppliers to facilitate a purposeful increase in our diverse spend. As a result, we have configured an enterprise resource planning program to help track supplier diversity, including a comprehensive vendor review that significantly enlarges the universe of certified diverse suppliers invited to bid for our contracts.

CEO Action

CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion is the largest business-led initiative that supports DE&I in the workplace, with more than 2,500 CEOs in a wide range of industries pledged to create more inclusive cultures at their companies. As a signatory to the CEO Action pledge since 2017, the Crowe board of directors and senior leadership team annually reaffirm our pledge to CEO Action as part of our commitment to realizing positive change in our business and communities. Putting our muscle where our mouth is, we also dedicate time and talent to the CEO Action for Racial Equity (CEOARE) Fellowship program. CEOARE works to eradicate systemic racism and advance racial equity through public policy at the federal, state, and local levels.
