Vasso & Associates of Tyler, TX is only 12 employees strong, but gives back in a big way to its community. A vast majority of its employees participate in philanthropic events and programs offered by the firm and two-thirds take advantage of the firm’s seven hours of Volunteer Time Off per year. The firm also offers a generous matching gift program of up to $2,000. In total, Vasso & Associates donated $109,000 to charity in its last fiscal year.
Some of the events and programs Vasso & Associates offered last year included a service project at the East Texas Food Bank to prepare food packages and a luncheon with a guest speaker to raise funds for a new program to assist the local homeless population. The firm also sponsored dozens of events that supported a range of causes in its local community from hunger and poverty prevention to education and cancer research.
