Denver, Nov. 28, 2018 — Plante Moran, one of the nation’s largest certified public accounting, tax and consulting firms, has awarded $30,000 across three Colorado-based nonprofit organizations: Colorado Fourteeners Initiative, Dawg Nation Hockey Foundation, and Arrupe Jesuit High School.

The three charities were among 150 organizations that participated in the Plante Moran Cares charity contest. Eligible organizations were invited to register for the contest, and their supporters voted in three rounds for the organization they felt was most deserving of the monetary award. After 100,000 votes were cast, Plante Moran is happy to report the following donations:

  • First place: Colorado Fourteeners Initiative, winner of a $15,000 donation  
  • Second place: Dawg Nation Hockey Foundation, winner of a $10,000 donation 
  • Third place: Arrupe Jesuit High School, winner of a $5,000 donation 

“We’re proud to support such worthy organizations,” said Joe Bertsch, managing partner of Plante Moran’s Rocky Mountain region. “Our community relies on the incredible work of our local nonprofits, and our firm was honored to help shine a light on the services they provide.”

Plante Moran hosted its Plante Moran Cares contest as a way to celebrate its recent combination with EKS&H, one of the largest CPA firms in the Rocky Mountain region. The contest was intended to not only thank the community for its support, but also to offer new opportunities and provide visibility to deserving not-for-profit organizations in Plante Moran’s new Colorado home.
