2019 Baird Gives Back Week
At Baird, we believe giving back isn’t just right thing to do – it’s at the core of what it means to call a community home.
Our firm has a long tradition of community involvement. We are proud to support our associates’ passion for service by matching individual donations, hosting workplace giving programs, backing deserving causes through Baird Foundation and supporting their individual volunteer efforts.
Many of our associates team up during Baird Gives Back Week, an associate-organized series of volunteering events in communities across the globe. Held annually since 2009, the event now unites nearly 1,800 Baird associates, relatives and friends on three continents.
