Our Community

We pride ourselves on being a diverse organization that builds long-lasting relationships with and provides support for the communities in which we live and work, as well as national organizations.To fulfill this commitment, we launched our CBIZ Cares Program to encourage participation in volunteering, fundraising, our National Food Drive, our support of Dress for Success, and our Green Team. 

Volunteering

In honor of CBIZ's 20th anniversary in 2016, we wanted to give back to the communities in which we live and work. We embarked on a project we named CBIZ Cares and encouraged all of our offices to have their team members volunteer up to five paid hours at a nonprofit organization selected by that CBIZ location. CBIZ Cares was such a success that we decided to make it an annual initiative!

The program remains the same in that each local team volunteers at an organization (or multiple organizations for our larger offices) of their choice. A CBIZ Cares leader for each location identifies and selects volunteering opportunities with nonprofits and subsequently organizes CBIZ team members to participate in the project. 

In our first two years of CBIZ Cares, we volunteered nearly 15,000 hours in our communities. 

Fundraising

We also support fundraising initiatives such as hosting a local charitable campaign, providing funding for a CBIZ team to participate in a walk/race benefiting a nonprofit, etc. 

As needs arise, we host other campaigns to help those in need. In 2017 we held a donation drive to benefit the Hurricane Harvey relief fund supported by the American Red Cross.


We exceeded our $50,000 goal and, with a corporate donation from CBIZ, we donated more than $78,500 to the American Red Cross for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. 

 

National Food Drive

Another key element of CBIZ Cares is our annual CBIZ National Food Drive, which was established in 2009. During this two-week event each fall, we ask our team members for monetary or non-perishable food donations to provide to their local food bank.

We make the Food Drive fun by sponsoring a friendly competition between offices. Each office is categorized by employee count and the top two offices in each category receive a prize based on the greatest amount of food and monetary donations, as measured by the total pounds collected divided by employee count.

 

 

Since 2009, we have donated more than
7 million pounds of food around the country. 

CBIZ Women's Advantage & Dress for Success

In partnership with our CBIZ Women’s Advantage program, we sponsor an annual campaign to benefit Dress for Success (DFS). DFS is a non-profit organization that provides professional attire for job interviewing, career/life counseling, technology training and mentoring support to thousands of disadvantaged women each year.

Participating CBIZ offices have local committees to develop creative campaigns for fundraising. 

In recent years, we began collecting travel-size toiletry items to make hygiene bags that are given to women as they receive their wardrobe from DFS. In 2017, we greatly increased our efforts to make bags to help the DFS affiliates in Texas as they were significantly impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

From 2008 through 2018, we have donated 58,000 clothing or accessory items and more than $545,000 to DFS affiliates nationwide. 

 

Green Team

We also care about being environmentally friendly! In 2018 we renewed our commitment to our green initiatives and launched a national Green Team, comprised of volunteers from across CBIZ who are passionate about enhancing our green efforts.  Our goal is to establish practical and actionable solutions to support sustainable environments within each of our local offices.
