Community Engagement

There is a statue outside of the Woodruff Arts Center in Atlanta called World Events, by Tony Cragg. As art, it speaks to the fact that we’re all connected. Every individual and business contributes to the whole. It’s a message that resonates with us and provides perspective on the importance of maintaining strong relationships. As a firm, we believe it’s important to give back to the community and the environment in a meaningful way.

These are some of the organizations and causes that we support:

  • Piedmont Park Conservancy
  • American Woman’s Society of CPAs
  • Atlanta Public Schools
  • Atlanta Bicycle Coalition
  • PEDS
  • Wikimedia Foundation

Security and Privacy

Businesses that perform accounting and financial services must handle sensitive information about companies and individuals. The information may include banking access credentials, social security numbers, tax ids, income amounts, names and birthdates of family members and other private data that’s required on federal and state tax forms.

Any service provider handling such information should be able to provide details on how they handle your information both in paper and electronic format. Our systems and processes have been designed from the ground up to secure client data at all times while in transit or at rest.
