Founded in 2011 by a group of professional accountants, the Community Ambassadors help CPAs find meaningful and productive volunteer opportunities where they can build on their skill set by offering financial expertise, leadership, and guidance to non-profit organizations in need. The Community Ambassadors aim to help non-profit organizations, ranging from small to large and complex, that serve a wide variety of sectors. These sectors include poverty reduction, health, support for children, addictions recovery, the arts, animals, and the environment.
