William Blair’s commitment to philanthropy is exemplified each year through the William Blair employees’ countless contributions to hundreds of charitable organizations. As William Blair considers the philanthropic involvement of its employees a staple to company culture, they offer a full day of paid time off to volunteer.
William Blair employees are active in their communities throughout the world. Each year, they support food banks, environmental programs and educational organizations. An example of an annual obligation to the William Blair European teams is the annual coat collection for ‘Wrap Up London.’ This organization works to battle homelessness in Zurich and sponsors an annual youth art competition to celebrate the legacy of Anne Frank in Frankfurt. The firm invested $2.4 million in 2016 to support more than 500 charitable organizations.
