The Charitable Greens


Earlier this week, Team RSM Member Chris DiMarco shared an incredible fact: “Since 2012, golf as a fundraising vehicle has raised nearly $20 billion for charity.” Talk about an honorable feat! This is one of the main reasons our firm, RSM US LLP (“RSM”), chose to align with golf by serving as title sponsor of The RSM Classic, an official PGA TOUR event, in 2010. The game of golf and RSM share similar values (respect, integrity, excellence, teamwork and stewardship) and the philosophy that – whether in the boardroom or on the golf course – the power of any relationship comes through understanding. Since its inception, The RSM Classic has raised more than $7 million for nonprofit organizations!

Charitable contributions raised through The RSM Classic are distributed by the Davis Love Foundation (DLF), which was established in 2005 by professional golfer and Team RSM Member Davis Love III and his wife Robin. The DLF contributes to the wellbeing and progress of society by supporting both national and community-based programs that focus on children and families. Its mission is to help build a better future for families and children who are at risk of poor educational economic, social and health outcomes. Read about the contributions from last year’s tournament.

While no members of Team RSM are hitting the greens this week, we do have some friends we’ll be cheering on: past RSM Classic winners Ben Crane (2011), Chris Kirk (2013), Robert Streb (2014), Kevin Kisner (2015) and Mackenzie Hughes (2016) are all playing in the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Below were their tee times for today (Thurs., April 27). Best of luck this weekend to each of them!
