CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY MAKES GOOD BUSINESS SENSE

Colby McGeachy is more than an accounting firm. We are a team of professional service providers who believe in setting and attaining the highest standards of transparency and accountability, while creating positive social and environmental benefits. We believe that running a business can also do good for the community and world around us. Here are just some of the ways we give back both locally and abroad.

What Is B1G1?

At Colby McGeachy Professional Corporation we believe in supporting youth.

When we started this firm, we were very clear about wanting to offer quality services to our community. Our firm represents professional strength through the use of personal service, offering practical solutions to our clients. We believe this makes a real difference to our clients.

We recognize that we are blessed to be able to earn a living by doing what we love to do; but we also wanted to be able to connect with the broader community in a way that was meaningful to both the firm, and to our clients, and to make a difference in the world while at the same time fulfilling our corporate responsibility.

Our participation in B1G1 has offered us this ability in a fantastic way. Just by doing what we do we are able to change the lives of people around the world. The B1G1 organization makes it possible for 100% of our giving to go to the projects we (and our clients) choose. As we and our clients grow our giving and our impact grows.

With a particular focus on youth, such as providing nourishing meals, supporting education, supplying medical care, affording transportation and shelter we are able to profoundly and positively impact the lives of young people so that they have a better chance for a future.

We believe that our firm, and the businesses we support, have the power to change lives! Together with our clients we are making that happen. Please let us know if you would like to know more about B1G1 and how you can partner with this wonderful organization within your own business! We would love to share our experience with you so that you too can get involved!

We love hearing from our clients and connecting with them on a regular basis. And we also love our involvement in B1G1 because we recognize that habits change lives. We are making a habit now that does precisely that. Every time we reply to or send an email, a child in Ethiopia or Malawi gets access to clean water for a day.

You might want to join us in making a difference in the world! Check out the B1G1 website for more information and to get involved.

 

B1G1 (Buy1GIVE1) is a global organization founded in Australia and now headquartered in Singapore.

B1G1 is the home of transaction-based giving. Through B1G1, businesses and customers can now make huge impacts on our world in the simplest of ways.

B1G1 gives businesses around the world a unique ‘giving engine’ which allows them to match their products and services to over 600 projects worldwide. As a direct result, they create resonant stories that ‘connect’ in a much deeper way.

So, for example, the coffee shop is able to say, ‘Every time you buy our coffee, a child gets access to water’; the author can say, ‘Every time my book gets sold, a tree gets planted’; the recruitment company educates kids each time a candidate is placed; a cataract-blind person gets the gift of site each time a plasma TV gets sold and much, much more.

The possibilities are endless and the impact is huge. And it’s so easy to be a part of.

B1G1 is a way of giving that is simple, effective and impactful.
