Life at Deloitte
Philadelphia commitment to our communities
On Friday, June 5, keep an eye out for hundreds of Deloitte professionals who are leaving behind their laptops, conference calls and emails to volunteer with 23 nonprofit organizations in Greater Philadelphia. I’ll be joining our team at Cristo Rey Philadelphia High School, one of Deloitte’s premiere collaborations in our focus to inspire and support students on their path to college and career success. We’ll be the folks in the blue t-shirts throughout the region, taking part in our 16th annual, nationwide day of community service—Impact Day.
Making an impact that matters is an ongoing commitment
Impact Day represents our organization’s ongoing commitment to the communities in which we live and work. Though Impact Day is our most visible demonstration of corporate citizenship, our leaders and professionals volunteer their time and skills year-round to nonprofits across the US and right here in Greater Philadelphia. Programs like our Deloitte Education Collaborative–a four-year mentoring program for Philadelphia high school students–yield strong results for both the people we serve and the Deloitte professionals who power our community work. Deep investment in the community is core to our DNA and a tremendous source of pride for our people.
Beyond our work in Greater Philadelphia, we expect tens of thousands more volunteers to contribute to more than 950 community service projects in more than 80 US communities, often focusing on causes that support youth education and veterans transitioning to civilian careers.
Impact Day is the one day each year when the people of Deloitte celebrate our year-round corporate citizenship efforts as a group. So, if you see me or my colleagues out volunteering in our blue Deloitte t-shirts—ask us where we’re going. Maybe we can tell you about a great local nonprofit you’re not familiar with, and inspire you to invest your own time, talent or treasure.
