Mesa United Way annual award recognizes contribution to the organization

Schmidt Westergard & Company, a leading CPA firm in the region, received the Mesa United Way’s top honor, the Heart of Mesa Award, which was presented at the organization’s annual luncheon. The award is given annually to the organization that provides the top combination of corporate and employee leadership during that year’s United Way campaign. Criteria include per capita employee contributions, increased employee and corporate giving over the prior year, the existence of an employee education program on the importance of supporting the Mesa United Way, dedicated contributions to the Mesa United Way’s Community Care Fund, and employee participation in Mesa United Way volunteer committees.

“One of our core values is to give back to the community," said Lynn Westergard, partner at Schmidt Westergard. “The Mesa United Way is a deserving organization with an uncommon ability to serve our city well. It is our privilege to be a part of helping this organization.”
