We’re very excited about this opportunity to give something back to the community in addition to the participation we received from our clients and our friends in the business community
Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) October 05, 2011
Charlotte-Boatsman Gillmore PLLC, a Charlotte based CPA and financial advisory firm with offices in the Lake Norman area, awarded the first annual community grants through the Make an Impact Foundation.
On September 24, the Make an Impact Foundation – a 501(c) 3 tax exempt organization, donated $26,000 to three finalists in its inaugural “Nominate a Project” campaign. The campaign encourages the community and the firm’s clients and business partners to nominate a project at a local charity that is both making an impact in the community and also needs the support to complete a specific project that will make an impact to the organization. In the inaugural year, the finalists of the award were Refugee Children’s Relief, Little Smiles, and an ADA compliant facility for a local resident with Down Syndrome. All three finalists received a donation on the night via a fund raising event on the houseboat Yachta Yachta Yachta on Lake Norman during the evening. The event was attended by the Boatsman Gillmore team, several of the firm’s clients, and representatives from each group that received an award. $20,000 was donated by Boatsman Gillmore PLLC and an additional $6,000 was raised the night of the event.
The Make an Impact Foundation is funded from Boatsman Gillmore PLLC revenues and is a long term commitment of the firm’s principals and staff. “We’re very excited about this opportunity to give something back to the community in addition to the participation we received from our clients and our friends in the business community. Dale, our entire staff, and I are really looking forward to making a difference in the lives of some very deserving people in our local community,” says Adam Boatsman, partner of Boatsman Gillmore PLLC.
