Community involvement is central to BPM’s mission. Since its formation, the firm’s people-centric focus and dedication to service have applied not only to clients and employees, but to individuals and families who make up the communities in which we live and do business.
Every year our offices close for a day so that our employees can join together in teams for the community service event known as BPM Day. Projects encompass a broad selection of philanthropic activity from restoring local wildlife habitat, to building sets for a community theater, to painting and cleaning a homeless shelter. Over time, the firm has contributed more than 100,000 hours of volunteer labor to over 75 nonprofits through BPM Days.
Meals on Wheels
For 50 years, Meals on Wheels Diablo Region has been delivering nutritious meals to older adults in need of support. In September, the nonprofit’s building was devastated by a fire, and it will take at least a year to recover from the smoke and water damage. In the meantime, BPM’s Walnut Creek office is happy to share its space, providing the nonprofit a place to continue doing its important work.
For more than 26 years, BPM has adopted three local elementary schools where staff members read to students, judge essay contests, have pizza parties and make presentations at school assemblies. Each year, BPM holds an annual art card contest, in which BPM staff members help choose the design for cards through an art contest at the adopted schools. Budding artists get recognition for their work, while the schools win art supplies for their classrooms.
Board and Professional Service
Free education programs for nonprofits and Community Liaisons in each office that monitor the needs of their surrounding communities are just a few examples of the ongoing service ethic that is part of daily life at BPM. The firm’s partners and managers currently serve on more than 80 boards of nonprofit, business and community organizations. BPM partners are active leaders in professional organizations including the California Society of CPAs, American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and San Francisco Chamber of Commerce.
