Business-Advised Fund: Enabling Employees Pays Off

Travis WolffThe team of independent accountants, advisors, and administrators at Armanino would rather spend their time working together to help others than vetting the many nonprofit organizations they support and managing the company’s charitable fund. That’s why Armanino  established a business-advised fund at Communities Foundation of Texas (CFT). “CFT provides an outstanding opportunity to channel engagement in charitable giving, organizes activities and streamlines efforts for us,” said Harold Gaar, managing partner. “CFT is not just managing our funds, but also active participation of our employees.”Travis Wolff

The staff of Armanino is very involved in CFT for Business, and the company was instrumental in making CFT for Business's Freedom Day project a success as its employees worked with more than 400 other volunteers to give Sarah Zumwalt Middle School in South Dallas a makeover. “We don’t direct our employees; we enable them,” Gaar said. “Volunteering creates a sense of community and a sense of giving while working with other like-minded people. It extends charitable giving and extends business relationships, too.”
