Corporate Social Investment

At BDO we make an effort to become actively involved in the projects we support and to make our support personal.

In a country such as South Africa, with a devastatingly high unemployment rate and many social challenges, it is incumbent upon individuals and companies to provide support to those in need. Engaging our people to become involved in community outreach programmes not only makes a difference in the lives of others, it also enables us to connect with one another.

Most of us have experienced highs and lows due to the pandemic but this doesn’t stop us from supporting hundreds who are worse off than us.

Our CSI efforts are undertaken under the auspices of our Evolution Committee, comprising staff in each office. Through Evolution, each of our offices supports a range of local organisations, from collecting food for animal shelters, Christmas presents for under-privileged children, making sandwiches for street children, hosting tea parties for the elderly, collecting warm clothing and blankets, supporting Casual Day, Slipper Day, Movember, Daredevil Run and AIDS Awareness Day, to name a few.

In the 2020/21 financial year we supported 63 pro bono clients to the value of R10 281 606.
