Armanino Hosts 11th Annual Great Give Event with Renewed Purpose

SAN RAMON, Calif., May 23, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Armanino LLP, one of the 25 largest accounting and business consulting firms in the U.S., today announced it is once again closing its offices for the day so that employees can volunteer at one of more than 50 nonprofit organizations across the country as part of its 2019 Great Give. The annual community service event takes on a special meaning this year as it coincides with the firm updating its core purpose to be the most innovative and entrepreneurial firm that makes a positive impact on the lives of its clients, people and communities. This year, Armanino is set to donate more than 6,700 hours of community service during the Great Give.

“The Great Give is one of the most popular firm events each year and gives us the opportunity to directly impact the important causes and charities making our communities a better place,” said Matt Armanino, CEO of Armanino LLP. “Since 2009, it’s been our privilege to donate our time and resources to these incredible organizations.”

The Great Give is a firm-wide event that has grown steadily over the years since first launching in 2009. It is a community service initiative of the Armanino Foundation that, along with the Dollars for Doers and Volunteer Vacation programs, supports nonprofit organizations across the country and around the world. Since its founding, the Armanino Foundation has also donated more than $489,000 to a variety of charities in the firm’s communities and beyond.

Keeping with the firm’s community focus, Armanino partner Ken Teasdale was recognized by CalCPA with its 2019 Public Service Award for being especially active in service to the profession and community. Ken is a board member and former grants committee member for the Armanino Foundation.  Additionally, Ken has been active in the Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times and Child and Family Guidance Center charities for many years.
