New York, October 25, 2017. In celebration of #GivingTuesday, Friedman LLP announced the launch of their first-ever Share to Care social giving campaign in support of its nonprofit client, Urban Arts Partnership (UAP). Friedman will donate $4 to UAP each time their #FriedmanCares Slideshow is shared on social media to help close the achievement gap in under-resourced schools.* Share to Care is an initiative of Friedman Cares, the firm’s philanthropic arm.
“As Friedman’s Nonprofit Practice Leader, I’m proud of this exciting partnership between our firm and UAP in support of such an important cause—empowering tomorrow’s future,” said partner Amish Mehta.
“When UAP selected Friedman as the organization’s auditors, I was excited about the opportunity. I knew this was the beginning of a powerful relationship. I’m thrilled for the launch of the Share to Care social giving campaign that demonstrates our core values and dedication to empowering the communities in which we work,” said Sarah Avery, Director.
The positive sentiment was echoed by Philip Courtney, CEO of UAP. “We are so grateful to Friedman for promoting this initiative during this year's season of giving. Friedman has been a longtime supporter of UAP, and through their gift, we will be able to reach more public school students and close the achievement gap through essential arts education programs.”
