A big part of our identity is a culture in which individuals find fulfillment in what they do each day. Our professionals want their work to have meaning and purpose, and to make a real difference for someone else.
DMLO was a finalist for three consecutive years for Republic Bank’s We CARE Awards, recognizing businesses that encourage employees to become involved as volunteers in their communities. We do this by helping to identify opportunities, and allowing company time and resources for this purpose. Several partners and staff members have been highly recognized for their roles and accomplishments.
In addition to individual contributions, the firm invests financial resources in regional projects and organizations. We are a Top Investor with Greater Louisville Inc. as well as a High Impact Portfolio company, and a strong supporter of and contributor to One Southern Indiana.
Some of the ways we give back:
♦ We partner with Fund for the Arts and Metro United Way each year. The majority of our employees make individual contribution commitments, which the firm matches.
♦ Volunteers of America Hope for the Holidays campaign
♦ We enter corporate teams in various projects and events throughout the year: Habitat for Humanity, Big Brothers Big Sisters Accountants Bowl for Kids’ Sake, the American Heart Association’s Heart Walk, the Hosparus LUNAR 5K, St. Vincent de Paul’s Help Build a Playground project, Dare to Care, and others.
♦ Denim Fridays provide an opportunity for staff who wish to join us in supporting one of our not-for-profit clients to donate and wear jeans.
♦ We love entrepreneurs, and support Louisville’s startup community in various ways, including offering free Open Office Hours at iHub, a Nucleus Kentucky co-working space downtown, and sponsoring the LaunchIt program.
Giving back to our community has been part of the culture at DMLO since it began, and will continue to be a priority in years to come. Many of the people we hire come to us with an already extensive resume of community service. We are very proud of our professionals for their willingness to share their time and talents freely!
