We strive to make a difference and believe that it is our responsibility to give back to the community.
Community leadership is a central component of our vision for Welch LLP; all of our offices have charitable causes, events, and organizations that they support throughout the year. Many of our partners and staff sit on the boards of not-for-profit organizations, and we encourage community involvement from all of our staff by offering an annual volunteer day.
Welch Legacy Foundation
In 2011, we established the Welch Legacy Foundation, a charitable arm of Welch LLP. Through this foundation, we supported Bruyére Foundation through our Annual Beach Soccer Tournament from 2011-15. Our commitment to Bruyére Foundation helped them to continue their mission of helping aging Canadians remain as healthy and independent as possible through innovative and compassionate care, research, education, and advocacy.
In 2016, we launched our event “The Grand Casino: Betting Against Cancer” to support of the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation and raise funds for their Back to Work program. The ORCF’s Back to Work Program is designed to help navigate the physical and mental challenges of returning to work after cancer treatment. Throughout coaching sessions, patients not only receive support from the Cancer Coaches, but gain understanding from other survivors who have made the transition back to work.
