#GivingTuesday, which falls on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving in the U.S., may be a relatively new event on the holiday calendar, but it is one that is embraced by KRS CPAs.
“Giving back is ingrained in the KRS culture and Giving Tuesday is the perfect time for us to contribute to help those in Puerto Rico who lost their homes and livelihoods in the recent natural disasters,” said KRS CPAs managing partner Maria Rollins.
The firm donated to United for Puerto Rico, which provides assistance to individuals and small businesses devastated by Hurricanes Irma and Maria. The nonprofit has already contributed $6.9 million for the relief and recovery of Puerto Rico. An additional amount of $17.2 million is in the process of being distributed among all recovery categories to help rebuild individuals’ lives and communities, and Puerto Rico.
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. The day kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
