Maner Costerisan Supports Eight Nonprofits in Lansing & Grand Rapids During Firm’s Annual Day of Impact
LANSING, Mich. – Maner Costerisan, a full-service public accounting, technology and business consulting firm, volunteered at eight nonprofits throughout Lansing and Grand Rapids Nov. 3 as part of its fifth annual Maner Costerisan Cares Day of Impact.
“Maner Cares Day is an event our team looks forward to every year,” said Trey Williams, CPA, president, Maner Costerisan. “This year, we volunteered with a variety of nonprofits that do great work in the communities where our team members live and work – across Lansing and Grand Rapids. It was truly a rewarding experience for all of us.”
The event, held on the first Thursday of November each year, is part of the firm’s Maner Cares community relations program. This year, anywhere from 4-20 team members volunteered at each nonprofit location.
Maner staff donated their time and resources to the Greater Lansing Food Bank, Junior Achievement, Tri-County Office on Aging and Habitat for Humanity and Mid-Michigan Recovery Services in Lansing, as well as Junior Achievement, Senior Neighbors and the Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Grand Rapids and surrounding areas.
“We were so proud to partner with volunteers from Maner Costerisan to bring financial literacy principles to our area students,” said Laura Lutterbeck, Interim Education Director, JA of the Michigan Great Lakes. “Their employee’s enthusiasm, dedication and commitment to our students was phenomenal! We hope to partner again in the future to benefit our kids.”
Maner Costerisan was named one of Crain’s Detroit’s 2022 Cool Places to Work in September and continues to be recognized for its positive work culture and a top midsize and large firm to work for nationwide by prominent industry publications such as Accounting Today. Many of those accolades are a result of staff feedback and surveys, and much of that feedback is based on events and activities such as Maner Cares Day.
“I had the opportunity to teach a fourth-grade class about the basics of starting interdependent businesses and how regions influence how businesses work while volunteering with Junior Achievement,” said Sarah Jennings, CPA, CFE, CEA, Principal and head of Maner’s community development initiatives. “It was such a fun experience. Listening to the kids have real-life debates about how to use their business’ profits and help their employees. The entire team at Maner is so grateful to have the opportunity to participate in the meaningful work that nonprofits like JA do all across the state.”
