Practicing What We Preach
Alexander Haas Matching Gifts Program is another example of how We Practice What We Preach. Our gift-giving program focuses on supporting our staff’s philanthropic interests. From public and private schools, colleges and universities, museums and other cultural organizations, social services, environmental and international organizations, our firm matches contributions of $50 or more dollar-for-dollar. Since we established this program, the firm has contributed thousands of dollars to a wide variety of causes.
