It’s not enough to simply do well in business. We do good, too.
Since our inception, one of our core values has been to be deeply involved in giving back to our community. We strive to provide an environment that encourages cooperation, life balance, and giving back to the community in which we live and work.
We believe in the importance of giving back to the community and making a difference in the lives of others. In 2014, the firm and our associates contributed considerable time and money to over 117 non-profit organizations. Some of the recipients included:
Bike Lady, Inc.
The Bike Lady provides NEW bikes, helmets and locks to the Franklin County Children Services Holiday Wish program. In 2015, GBQ donated enough money for 110 bikes, including a helmet and lock.
