Community Involvement

A Caring Community Partner

Baird has a long tradition of giving back in the communities where our associates live and work, and many give generously of their time, talents and personal resources to local organizations. Our associates also support annual firm level campaigns to raise funds for local and national charities. And our Baird Foundation provides financial support for causes ranging from fighting homelessness and hunger to promoting education and the arts. Our ongoing commitment to building relationships in the community and empowering associates to get involved is central to our culture. We believe that one helping hand can ignite significant and positive change. Whether associates are volunteering their time and talent, donating generously, or influencing others to get involved in the community, their impact is felt and can be-far reaching. 

Other ways Baird supports associates’ passion for giving back include:

  • Baird Gives Back Week: encourages associates to team up in their communities and volunteer in a range of activities, including tutoring students, working with seniors, building homes and cleaning up parks
  • Baird Cares: provides an extra paid day off each year for associates to volunteer in their communities
  • Baird Foundation Matching Gift Program: matches a portion of Baird associates’ nonprofit contributions
  • Brenton H. Rupple Citizenship Award: presented annually to an associate who makes outstanding contributions to civic, charitable and academic organizations
