Sharpens Focus on Veterans, Education Signature National Issues as Part of New Approach to Citizenship
NEW YORK, June 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Deloitte's more than 60,000 professionals will make nonprofits their top clients for the organization's 15th annual IMPACT Day. This annual day of service is a celebration of Deloitte's year-round commitment to driving positive change in communities. Since 2005, an estimated 1.5 million lives have been impacted by the volunteer efforts of Deloitte professionals on IMPACT Day. This year, with a special focus on veterans and education-focused projects, volunteers have the opportunity to participate in more than 800 volunteer events in over 80 U.S. communities.
"We are proud to harness the collective energy of our people to deliver an extraordinary impact for the communities in which we live and work, on IMPACT Day, and all year long," said Joe Echevarria, chief executive officer, Deloitte LLP. "As a leading employer of top business talent, we know that empowering our people to 'do what they do best' through skills-based volunteerism enables us to give back in ways that matter and contribute to making America stronger."
In addition to traditional "hands-on" volunteer projects, more than one-third of IMPACT Day projects leverage specialized skills and innovative thinking of Deloitte professionals to help nonprofits address their most pressing strategic, operational and financial challenges. This year, as part of Deloitte's new approach to citizenship, the organization has sharpened its focus on projects that support veterans and education issues.
