A Passion to Thrive

At Green Hasson Janks, we help our people and clients pursue their passions, build thriving businesses and create a better future. GHJ Foundation is built so our community, too, can thrive and build a better future for all.

GHJ Foundation raises funds through Firm contributions, individual contributions of active and retired partners, individual staff members and alumni contributions. With these raised funds, GHJ Foundation provides sponsorships for philanthropic events and matching gifts for employee donations, makes philanthropic contributions, supports community service days, sponsors community volunteering and provides learning and development opportunities for staff through memberships of community organizations.

Grants Committee

To effectively identify the community members who are most aligned with our giving mission, our firm members volunteer to serve on a rotating roster of GHJ Foundation's Grants Committee. Twice annually, those committee members identify, assess, analyze and select their list of grants recipients. It is the belief of GHJ that engaging our staff’s passion for giving, and reinforcing the concepts of giving back and being of service, helps grow great philanthropists into the future.

In the Community

Along with matching staff donations through GHJ Foundation, our Firm encourages our staff to be involved in community projects. Many team members serve on the boards and key committees of nonprofit organizations, and volunteer regularly in the community.

We host community events regularly where our partners and employees can perform community service, raise funds and volunteer in the community. We have provided a variety of service projects over the decades, including ways our professional expertise can accelerate the growth of community organizations.
