Gilbert CPAs provides professional services to hundreds of nonprofit organizations and also supports the nonprofit community philanthropically as a cornerstone of their company culture. Gilbert cultivates special relationships with many specific nonprofit organizations, both assisting those organizations professionally and volunteering with them to help support their missions.
Gilbert’s community philanthropy includes donations, in-kind services and volunteer time to organizations that better our entire community. Each July, the firm hosts an annual community service day in which all team members volunteer at selected nonprofits. Sacramento Loaves & Fishes, with its mission of providing an oasis for homeless men, women and children seeking survival services, is consistently a beneficiary of Gilbert volunteers.
“Sacramento Loaves & Fishes, one of our long-standing clients, is a life-changing organization,” says Bob Green, senior manager. “Each year, we commit to volunteering with them to support their mission, and this year we worked in their dining room to assist in serving meals. We are pleased to support the Loaves & Fishes program in any way we can, both professionally and as volunteers.”

Many Gilbert employees individually serve as volunteers and nonprofit board members, and the firm supports them and their causes with time off, funds and sponsorships. With 70 team members, Gilbert’s impact is significant — in 2017, they earned the California Society of CPAs award for the highest level of public service among CPA firms statewide.
“We are honored to work in community with Gilbert CPAs,” says Sacramento Loaves & Fishes Executive Director Angela Hassell. “They’ve provided steadfast support financially and through volunteerism for many years. As we prepare to celebrate 40 years of service, we are sobered by the toll homelessness takes on our community and on the spirits of those living through that experience. Gilbert CPAs’ commitment to helping our city’s most vulnerable folks ignites the hope that if we all pull together, we can achieve our mission of hospitality and love for our homeless neighbors.”
