Wipfli/Bauerle has been an integral part of the Metro Denver community since 1979. Wipfli/Bauerle is more than a business. We consider ourselves a family who care about the areas where we live and work. We are committed to our local community and try to demonstrate positive civic responsibility through monetary contributions, partnerships and volunteer resources. Our partners and staff serve as board members for a number of nonprofit organizations. Additionally, our employees contribute their time and resources to many charitable and civic organizations such as:
In July 2014 we partnered with one of our long-time clients, Michael Greenberg of PrintReleaf Exchange, in donating funds to an effort to improve our global environment for the better. Accounting firms use a ton of paper – especially during tax season. This translates into trees – lots of them. Our firm has agreed to have a tracker placed on our printers to measure how much paper we are actually using, and this translates into a monthly bill for Wipfli/Bauerle to re-plant a certain amount of trees in several countries around the world.
Since all of us are responsible for printing, and subsequently for the environment, we thought it would be a good idea to involve everyone at Wipfli/Bauerle to choose how these funds are distributed. We put it to a vote, and have decided to distribute the funds equally on a rotating basis. The projects currently running are taking place in Brazil, Burkina Faso, Dominican Republic, Ethiopia, Madagascar and Mexico.
We believe strongly in doing the right thing, and we are always right here for our clients, our community and employees. This time it is our global community!
$5 Jeans Friday Fundraiser
For select Fridays during the fourth quarter, Wipfli/Bauerle employees have the opportunity to wear jeans to work with a $5 donation towards a cause of choice. In 2011, Wipfli/Bauerle raised enough money to feed 40 meals for families of four. We look forward to carrying on this tradition in the future. In 2012, Wipfli/Bauerle raised close to $500 which was allocated towards four different charitable activities. In 2013, Wipfli/Bauerle raised over $500 to benefit a family affected by the 2013 Colorado Floods. In 2014, we raised money for a local nonprofit called Screen Free, which raises awareness about the dangers of children’s exposure to screens of all sizes.
This year we plan to raise money for the National Fragile X Foundation – Colorado Fragile X, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society – Light the Night Fundraiser, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) and the Denver Children’s Home. We’ll keep you posted on our progress!
