CHICAGO (Aug. 1, 2019) – Leading advisory, tax and assurance firm Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP (Baker Tilly) announces the creation of the Baker Tilly Foundation to drive greater impact in three philanthropic areas of education, health and wellness, and human services.
The Baker Tilly Foundation will amplify the firm’s charitable giving in causes its team members have supported for decades in personal and creative ways.
Baker Tilly Partner Jennifer Soltis will serve as president of the Baker Tilly Foundation and chairperson of its board of directors. She brings a track record of collaboration and strategic guidance in philanthropy from her active involvement in charitable organizations in Texas.
“The Baker Tilly Foundation aligns our giving to the causes that matter most to our team members and will be the cornerstone for firmwide charitable activities,” said Soltis. “Our team members make a difference every day through individual giving. Our foundation will do the same — now, for tomorrow.”
The announcement coincides with the firm’s fourth annual Stewardship Day — a single day of service where team members come together to serve the communities where they live and work. This year, Baker Tilly team members will volunteer with nearly 125 nonprofit organizations across 42 cities.
“While Stewardship Day captures our charitable spirit annually, our commitment to giving is year-round,” Baker Tilly CEO Alan Whitman said. “Our Baker Tilly Foundation will be integral to helping us expand our reach and leave a proud legacy.”
