Our advice: Take the opportunity to really make a difference.
At Grant Thornton, our people make a difference every day. Three years ago, we set out to design a campus charity campaign that truly reflects the Grant Thornton culture—demonstrating our commitment to making a difference in the communities in which we work and live. Instead of handing out promotional giveaways, we decided to donate the funds we would have spent on these items to a worthy cause.
Students on campuses across Canada were asked to visit our website and vote on their favourite charity. The three charities chosen to participate in this year’s campaign were Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Ronald McDonald House and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada—all causes that are close to our hearts at Grant Thornton. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada received the most votes, accepting a donation of $10,000.
Thanks to everyone who participated in the Grant Thornton campus charity campaign. We’re excited to be able to raise awareness and bring attention to the very meaningful work done by these important organizations.
