The Power of Love campaign sees RSM employees in both Canada and the United States raise funds for charitable organizations dedicated to enhancing educational outcomes or the quality of life for children and families. In support of this fundraising campaign, RSM Canada offices throughout the country will volunteer and raise funds for select local charitable organizations that align with RSM’s core value of stewardship.

RSM Canada successfully contributed over $220,000 to their selected charities in 2020 during the firm’s third year participating in the Power of Love campaign. This year’s fundraising goal is expected to be raised through various staff fundraising events, and additionally from external donors. Through the RSM US Foundation, RSM Canada will be able to access additional grants when fundraising goals are met, in addition to a grant that financially matches the hours employees contribute throughout the month of August, when our staff and their families will be able to support these charities through volunteer activities.
