At Rubino & Company, the same care and commitment that we show our clients is reflected in our support of the communities in which we live and work. Our growth has allowed us to give back in several different ways and we encourage our staff to become involved whenever possible.
Our people participate in, lead, and support a variety of community, civic, and educational organizations. Below are some of the activities that we actively support through volunteer efforts, board service, direct support, and pro-bono services.
Non-profit Board Participation
We donate thousands of hours of pro-bono work, providing accounting services to a diverse group of nonprofit organizations. Many of our staff actively sit on nonprofit boards in a leadership capacity, while others volunteer for a nonprofit organization or one of its committees.
Professional Workshops and Training for the Nonprofit Community
Each year we provide hundreds of hours of pro-bono training and workshops to the nonprofit community to improve financial acumen of project managers, CEOs, board members, and volunteers in the areas of financial management, budgets, accounting policies and procedures, governance, and compliance with federal grants and contracts.
Greater Washington Society of CPA’s
Rubino & Company is very active in the Greater Washington Society of CPA’s. Past presidents of the GWSCPA from Rubino & Company include: Margaret Deboe, Mike Gellman, Patty O’Malley and most recently Jenny Herrera. In addition, our partners and senior managers have chaired numerous GWSCPA committees to include the Nonprofit Symposium and the training academy.
Rubino & Company also provided hundreds of hours of inkind support to the GWSCPA’s Educational Foundation with the creation of the website Nonprofit Accounting Basic$. Rubino & Company employees continue to support Nonprofit Accounting Basic$ through the submission of articles and other content on regular basis.
Rubino & Company supports our employees in their charitable efforts by providing “volunteer days” to groups of staff members who unite for a common cause. We are proud of the initiative, drive, and community focus of our up and coming leaders who plan, organize and execute these volunteer days.
