Irvine, CA – October 19, 2017 – Windes, a leading California accounting and advisory firm, has been named as an honoree in the inaugural Civic 50 Orange County awards by the Orange County Business Journal and OneOC.
The award provides a local standard for superior corporate citizenship and showcases how companies use their time, skills and other resources to improve the quality of life in the community where they do business. This is the first time the Civic 50, a national initiative of Points of Light, has been localized for a specific market. Since 2012, the Civic 50 has annually recognized the 50 most community-minded companies in the nation as determined by a survey developed by True Impact. For Orange County, honorees were determined using True Impact’s adapted national Civic 50 online survey that is independently administered and scored.
Companies were selected based upon four dimensions of their community engagement programs: investment, integration, institutionalization and impact. The Civic 50 OC honorees include businesses from three categories: small, medium and large (based on the company’s number of local employees).
“We owe this honor to everyone at our firm, as they graciously give their time, talents, and support to various charities throughout the community during the year,” says John Di Carlo, managing partner of Windes. “One of our core values is ‘giving back to our communities,’ and we truly believe that we make a positive impact that contributes to the welfare of our surrounding areas.”
