Councilor, Buchanan & Mitchell (CBM), a full-service tax, accounting and advisory business serving clients in the Washington, DC metropolitan and Mid-Atlantic regions, was recognized for its 2020 philanthropic contributions by the Washington Business Journal. CBM ranked 5th among small businesses with 1,123 metro-area volunteer hours and 6th in metro-area financial contributions of $86,678.
“This reflects only partly on a successful 100th anniversary campaign,” said Daniel L. Weaver, CPA, president and managing partner of CBM. As part of the firm’s centennial celebrations over the past two years (referred to as CBM100), team members spearheaded numerous volunteer and charitable initiatives to give back to the not-for-profit community that has been critical to CBM’s success since 1921. “This year’s philanthropic efforts were part of a vibrant campaign, but they also validate our strong spirit of community leadership, which is one of the firm’s core values,” Weaver continued.
With team members working remotely in locations across the country, CBM’s charitable giving has touched diverse communities. Individuals interested in learning more about the firm’s charitable initiative and corporate philanthropy can visit CBM100-Charities on CBM’s website, which includes descriptions of nearly 30 activities.
“Even as our CBM100 initiative winds down this year, we had such a rewarding and impactful experience that our team is excited to continue our charitable work into the future,” said Weaver. “Our reputation is important for our legacy but also for CBM’s future success as we embark on a second century of outstanding client service.”
CBM looks forward to continuing its mission of corporate philanthropy excellence in the coming years.
