SD Mayer & Associates LLP, an accounting, technology and financial advisory services solutions provider, today announced that it raised $15,000 for North Bay fire relief efforts. This includes $5,370 raised by staff, a dollar-for-dollar match by the company, and a vehicle donated by Founder and Managing Partner Stephen D. Mayer. This donation will help support the immediate needs of the tens of thousands of survivors affected by last year’s horrific fires.
“October’s North Bay fires were the most destructive in California history, and many of our friends and families are still devastated,” said Mayer. “One of the core pillars of our business is to be active members in our communities. I am proud of our team for immediately launching a fundraising effort to support North Bay fire survivors.”
From early October through the end of 2017, 45 staff members raised a total of $5,370 through community fundraisers and their own contributions. SD Mayer then doubled these efforts via a dollar-for-dollar company match. Mayer personally donated his family van to a family who had lost everything, including their vehicle, in the fires.
“Thousands of families have yet to recover from this unimaginable tragedy, and we are at a crucial moment in which we must ask ourselves, ‘What can I do to help?’” said Mayer. “These donations will never truly replace what was lost, but SD Mayer is committed to doing everything we can to help our community during the long, difficult process of rebuilding. Our firm feels humbled and grateful to be in a position to provide support, and we urge others to contribute what they can to the North Bay fire relief efforts.”
