Two leading companies have announced a joint $20,000 matching-gift donation that underscores their deep support for one of the oldest continuously operating nonprofits in the United States.
The Bonadio Group, LLP, and Harris Beach, PLLC, have committed to match total donations made by the general public to Hillside, up to $20,000, through June 30, 2022. Funds raised through this effort will support Hillside programs and priorities including Family First and Work-Readiness initiatives; vital Technology and Capital innovations; and the Hillside Work-Scholarship Connection youth-development program.
“Harris Beach has a long history of supporting institutions that lift up our children and their families and strengthen our communities,” said Heidi Schult Gregory, managing partner, Harris Beach Rochester office. “Hillside is an extraordinary organization that provides community-based services, education and residential treatment to impact lives positively. Our organizations have a lot in common, including our longevity. We are excited to help bring the community together to cement Hillside’s bright future.”
“Supporting the communities we live and work in is one of our top priorities and a huge tenet of our Bonadio Purpose,” said Bruce Zicari, CEO of The Bonadio Group. “We are thrilled to be able to partner with organizations like Hillside who are actively working to make a difference in the lives of children and families, and we hope our contributions advance their critical efforts.”
“Philanthropy plays a critical role in Hillside’s ability to meet the constantly evolving needs of those we serve,” said Maria Cristalli, Hillside President and Chief Executive Officer. “We’re so grateful for these matching gifts from Harris Beach and The Bonadio Group, which offer a powerful show of support for services that make an important difference in the lives of nearly 10,000 youth and families every year.
“These matching gifts will amplify the impact of our community’s generosity,” Cristalli added. “There’s no better time to support our mission.”
