CohnReznick Community Day activities

Our commitment to positive change

Community service is foundational to CohnReznick’s purpose as a firm. Since our origins in 1919, our people have committed themselves to making a positive impact on the communities in which we live and work. Whether it’s supporting charities and causes in our local neighborhoods or participating in national charitable giving programs, our people are dedicated to giving back.

CohnReznick CARES

Coming together to support the causes we care about is a key facet of our culture and #LifeAtCohnReznick. CohnReznick CARES — our initiative dedicated to Community, Advocacy, Responsibility, Education, and Service – empowers team members from every level in our firm to get involved. From virtual fundraisers to in-person volunteerism, everyone has the opportunity to make a meaningful impact.

25 Impactful Ways to Pay It Forward with $25

Inspired by the movie about a boy who does good deeds and asks recipients to do good for others in return, CohnReznick created its Pay It Forward initiative. Every year, the firm gives employees $25 extra in their paychecks and asks that they use the money to make a difference in their communities. Risa Lavine, CohnReznick Chief of Staff, calls it an “act of kindness initiative that shows all levels of giving can make a meaningful impact.”
