Top 10 firm CliftonLarsonAllen (CLA) has announced that their CLA Foundation has awarded $449,000 to 26 organizations during its second grant cycle for 2016. The firm donated to organizations dedicated to job training, education, and career development, amongst others.

Coupled with the $300,000 awarded to 17 organizations during this year's first grant cycle, the CLA Foundation has awarded a total of $749,000 to 43 recipients in 2016.

All grantees were nominated by CLA team members and ultimately selected by a committee of CLA professionals. The Foundation, started in 2015, has a stated mission to "promote and support diverse individuals and organizations by connecting networks, advancing work readiness, and creating career opportunities."


“[2016] has been a monumental year for the CLA Foundation,” said Jan Kruchoski CLA Foundation board chair. “We received nominations for some amazing organizations that do incredible work, but the committee believes these 23 best fulfill the Foundation’s mission. Thanks to the generous support of our people we will continue changing lives through education, employment, and entrepreneurship.”
