Nearly 700 Bonadio Group Employees Participate In Annual “Purpose Day” Community Service Event

The Firmwide Event Benefits More Than 30 Non-Profit Organizations Across New York State and Beyond

Rochester, N.Y., August 4, 2023 —Nearly 700 employees at The Bonadio Group participated in community service activities today during the firm’s sixth annual Purpose Day, benefitting more than 30 non-profit organizations. Purpose Day was created to provide staff with opportunities to give back to their communities in the spirit of the company’s Bonadio Purpose. All the firm’s offices were closed to provide each employee with the opportunity to spend the day volunteering.

Our Bonadio Purpose is to provide opportunity, inspire growth and strengthen community – supporting the communities where we live and work is vital to who we are as a firm,” said Bruce Zicari, CEO, The Bonadio Group. “For the sixth year, we’re proud to expand our philanthropic reach with volunteerism at more organizations than ever to enhance our positive impact.

This year’s Purpose Day was themed “Catalyst for Greatness,” aligning with the theme of the firm’s annual “& More Day” celebration this past June. The theme recognizes the important contributions employees make to unlock greatness in their colleagues, clients and communities.

“We’re very appreciative to have people that are dedicated to not only the success of their clients and colleagues, but also their neighbors,” said Zicari. “Purpose Day is truly a celebration of that giving spirit and a thank you to our communities for all that they do.”
