Organizations that were helped by Wipfli associates across the states of Illinois, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Washington reiterated that valuable contributions were made on the firm’s Community Day this year.

Kay Van Matre, Capstone Manager with Junior Achievement of the Upper Midwest

We have come to count on the time they spend with us each year.”
Emily Kanally of Spokane’s Inland Northwest Second Harvest Food Bank
, said, “Second Harvest is grateful for the assistance of Wipfli, and other corporate partners, at a time when hunger is such a pressing problem in the Inland Northwest.

Toni Mattson, co-owner of Trinity Equestrian Center
in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, said, “It’s an incredible blessing when corporations like Wipfli invest in us like this. Your work on our behalf exemplifies Wipfli’s commitment to the community and to nonprofits like Trinity Equestrian Center.”
Molly Hilligoss, volunteer coordinator of the YWCA Coulee Region
