PM Cares provides our staff with the opportunity to make a difference in the communities where we live and work. While it’s a firmwide initiative, the focus is localized and grass roots, empowering office-based efforts that demonstrate our “we care” attitude.

At Plante Moran, we care. Not just about our staff and clients, but about the communities where we live and work. And with more than 2,000 staff, we have a lot of time and talent to offer.

You can find PMers supporting their communities in a variety of ways, from volunteer activities, participating in walks and runs, and holding positions on nonprofit boards — but in 2007, we realized we needed a structured way for our offices to unite and make a bigger impact. That’s when we formed Plante Moran Cares, a firmwide, grass roots community service initiative empowering office-based efforts.

How does the program work? The firm has a core PM Cares committee that receives support and direction from the firm’s management team. The committee selects an annual theme for offices to rally around and works with designated PM Cares captains in each office who not only coordinate local activities, but help their office select a local organization that aligns with the theme.

PM Cares is about more than raising money. It’s a chance for staff to share their time and talent and really get involved.

“I appreciate that PM Cares allows us to make a difference locally while still being part of a firmwide goal,” one staff member said. “Whether you’re in Plante Moran’s Cincinnati office or Traverse City, PM Cares is something staff can bond over. We know that together we’re making a big difference.”

PM Cares is about more than raising money. It’s a chance for staff to share their time and talent and really get involved. Since its inception, we’ve supported nearly 200 organizations with missions as varied as supporting our troops, feeding the hungry, ending domestic violence, promoting literacy, building life skills, childhood enrichment, and helping the less fortunate.

We’ve seen real creativity, hard work, and heart going to support PM Cares events across the firm. It’s an opportunity for us to give back and show that “We care” is more than a Plante Moran motto — it’s a way of life.
