Community & Community Impact
Our Illinois CPA Society’s CPA Day of Service this year was attended by many of our staff members. We packed enough food at Feed My Starving Children to feed 60 kids for an entire year. These boxes will go to Haiti. Thank you for all your help and support!
With both our April 18th individual tax and our May 15th nonprofit tax filing deadlines behind us, as well as our audit busy season, the MWA staff got together last week for heartfelt thank yous and a festive and delicious lunch buffet! Though we’ve all been working hard, the camaraderie and teamwork make it a little easier and a lot more enjoyable. Busy season Bingo helps, too! Since the weather was nice, we took the opportunity to take a “family” photo outside our office.
Our commitment to helping our clients succeed extends well beyond our accounting and consulting capabilities. On selected weekdays and weekends, you can find members of the MW&A team volunteering together to help our nonprofit clients and local charitable groups to make the world and community a better place to live.

Every May, a group of dedicated MW&A staffers and their family members walk to raise money for the Cancer Wellness Center in Northbrook, which provides a wealth of emotional and physical resources to support people affected by cancer.
Each holiday season, we collect donations from our staff, which are then matched by MW&A and used to buy gifts for our community members who could use a helping hand. We then deliver our gifts to local nonprofit organizations that have included Catholic Charities; A Safe Place For Help, which provides shelter to victims of domestic violence; and Glenkirk, which helps individuals with intellectual disabilities participate fully in all aspects of community life.
During the holiday season we also make an annual donation to food pantries to help ensure that our neighbors are able to enjoy the season with a warm meal.
