BOYNECLARKE has a strong history of commitment to community. From our complimentary presentations and board memberships to our innovative Summer Student Program, BOYNECLARKE encourages lawyers and staff to give back to our community.
One such community support program at BOYNECLARKE is our weekly casual day. Staff members raise approximately $500 a month through this program, and the funds are donated to a different charity or fund raiser each month, pre-selected at the start of the year by participating staff.
Based on Casual Days participant votes, the 11 charities we will be supporting in 2012 are as follows:
- SPCA of Nova Scotia
- Heart & Stroke Foundation
- Canadian Cancer Society
- Canadian Diabetes Association
- Make A Wish Foundation
- Bide Awhile Animal Shelter
- FEED Nova Scotia
- Canadian. Breast Cancer Foundation (Run for the Cure)
- Prostate Cancer Canada (Movember)
- Christmas Families
- Feeding Others of Dartmouth (Margaret’s House)
BOYNECLARKE also sets one month’s fundraising aside for unexpected events, such as a natural disaster. Should no unprecedented event occur, the funds raised for that month will be donated to the MS Society.
