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, and our support of Dress for Success



Beginning in 2016, and in honor of our 20th anniversary, 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 2019, we volunteered nearly 5,500 hours in our communities. 



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. 

Organizations supported by CBIZ offices nationwide include, but are not limited to, the following: United Way, American Heart Association, Make-A-Wish, Junior Achievement and The Humane Society. 

In 2019, our team members donated a total of $91,345.48 to charitable organizations. 


National Food Drive

A 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.


Pounds of food collected:

2009 403,146 pounds
2010 462.099 pounds
2011 576,289 pounds
2012 648.034 pounds
2013 650,776 pounds
2014 747,743 pounds
2015 1,026,140 pounds
2016 1,051,864 pounds
2017 1,140,960 pounds
2018 1,021,586 pounds
2019 1,072,252 pounds

More than 8 million pounds of food across 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).

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.
