Giving back to the community is an integral part of the Bates White culture. Through our Community Connection program, any employee or group of employees can propose and organize initiatives for nonprofits for which they are passionate. As a result, we consistently have more than 40 programs a year for a wide range of organizations. And in 2019, we set a new record of annual giving, donating more than $189,000.
At this year’s 12th annual cooking Throwdown competition, 40 chefs battled it out for top dish, raising more than $5,700 for Higher Achievement.
