Mesa, AZ – Schmidt Westergard & Company, a leading CPA firm in the region, received one of the Mesa United Way’s top honors, the Billy Williams Gold Award, which was presented at the organization’s annual luncheon. The award is given annually to organizations that have demonstrated their willingness to open their pocket books and donate generously to that year’s United Way campaign. Criteria include per capita employee contributions of $100 or more by at least 60% of employees, and an overall average contribution of $150 or more. Schmidt Westergard shared this honor with 16 other companies throughout the Valley.

“We consider it a duty and privilege to help those who are less fortunate than ourselves," said Jim Schmidt, Managing Partner at Schmidt Westergard. “The Mesa United Way is a worthwhile organization that is dedicated to doing just that, helping those in the community that need it most.”
