Supporting the Community Through The RSM Classic


The total is in and… WOW! RSM US LLP, title sponsor of The RSM Classic, an official PGA TOUR event, announced earlier today that the sixth annual RSM Classic (Nov. 19 – 22, 2015) raised $2,054,334 for children- and family-focused charitable organizations. This brings the six-year charitable contribution total from the tournament to nearly $5 million!  

Of the more than $2 million raised through this past November’s tournament, more than $1.2 million was raised through Birdies Fore Love, a donation program supported by RSM US offices across the country. Of that amount, more than $700,000 was raised by RSM employees and clients, and another $500,000 was donated by The RSM US Foundation.

A big congratulations to all those involved and who contributed. RSM has a rich history of giving back to the communities where its employees live and work – and this is one shining example of how much our employees, clients, friends and family members value stewardship.  

From totals to tees… our RSM “family” is having quite the gathering in Arizona this week for the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Team RSM Member Zach Johnson is joined by past RSM Classic winners Ben Crane (2011) , Chris Kirk (2013), Robert Streb (2014) and Kevin Kisner (2015). Best of luck to all our guys this weekend in what is typically one of the most colorful tournaments each year!
