Who says accountants don’t know how to have fun? Two accounting firms are making a Super Bowl wager for charity and they happen to be McKonly & Asbury’s IGAF partner firms. In case you’re not familiar with IGAF Worldwide, it is an association of independent accounting firms that my firm, McKonly & Asbury, is a member of. It consists of approximately 130 member firms in more than 60 countries. Through IGAF Worldwide, independent member firms offer the strength and capabilities of a large, worldwide organization with technical depth and geographic reach impossible for a local firm alone.
The two IGAF partner firms making this wager are Kolb+Co., a Brookfield, Wisconsin-based public accounting firm, and Schneider Downs, Pittsburgh's largest independent public accounting firm. Each company will come together in a team spirit day, where employees can support their team through casual dress when they make a $5 donation. Once the Super Bowl has been decided, all proceeds will be donated to the winning company’s charity. Both firms are planning to match the employee contributions to raise the stakes.
