Recognizing that each person doesn’t exist independently of humanity and the environment, we believe it is imperative to give back as a participant in our society.
Being a triple minority-owned and minority-managed firm, we understand the challenges faced by those underrepresented and historically underserved in business and society as a whole. Historically, it is difficult for these organizations to get the most basic business services, such as investor funding, grants, banking, and more. We see this as a solvable problem that we can impact as a growing firm that serves these businesses and organizations.
As of December 2020, we have designed and adopted a mission statement that prioritizes social progress in minority leadership representation and prosperity in business and non-profits. We will make part of our mission to assist and advise minority-owned businesses and minority-managed non-profits in achieving their mission as best we can.
We will begin keeping records and metrics on the number of minority-owned businesses we have served and purchased from and publish them to our site.
Here is a list of non-profit organizations we currently support and would love to have our clients join us in supporting:
- Black Girls Code
- The Sadie Collective
- The National Society of Black CPAs
- National Association of Black Accountants
- National Black MBA Association
- Black Girl Ventures
- Giving with a Golden Hand, Inc.
We believe these organizations have missions that meet our desire to expand access to basic business services, education, and access to capital for minority-led organizations and promote economic development in minority communities. Our list will also grow as we assist more non-profits who share our mission to establish and grow.
We have a “tip” line on our invoices, and as a client, whatever amount you donate will be forwarded to one of the organizations listed above in your name, and GSD will match your donation dollar for dollar, up to $100 (for the calendar year 2021). We will send you a thank you and an email with your receipt from that organization for your records. We hope you will join us in our goal to increase social progress.
