Sequoia extends its service philosophy beyond the walls of the firm to provide our communities with as much care and support as we offer our clients.

In appreciation of our own success, we strive to help others around us succeed via sponsoring, donating to, and volunteering for local causes.

We support organizations to which we feel we can make the most impact, such as serving on the board of the Breakthrough Schools; annually adopting families in need for the holidays; and preparing and serving meals at American Red Cross shelters. We also actively partner with our local food banks, which touch the lives of many in our region. One of our flagship projects included making a significant challenge gift to the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank. The project was so successful it became a best practice for other food banks around the country.
