December 29, 2021 Accountalent 2021 Philanthropy Year-in-Review
As 2021 draws to a close, the Accountalent team wants to take a chance to highlight a few of the organizations and charities that our company supports throughout the year.
While our team is 100% remote, we strive to donate to organizations in our local communities, whether in Boston, Chicago, Kansas City, or beyond. If a particular organization touches your heart, we encourage you to support them as well.
In the new year, we plan to launch the Accountalent Foundation, which will donate a portion of every invoice to causes like those featured below. We are lucky to have some of the best and brightest entrepreneurs as clients, and we look forward to including them in this process and heeding their suggestions on organizations to support.
Keep reading to learn more about just a few of these organizations, and Merry Christmas from the team at Accountalent!

How BLG Donations Make a Difference
Since 1963, Saint Paul’s Choir School has formed and educated boys in the rich music tradition of the Roman Catholic Church. The Choir School seeks to embrace the great cathedral school tradition as it unites a rigorous musical and academic curriculum with our Catholic faith and moral tradition, preparing each student to grow and flourish in a dynamic and changing world. It is the only Catholic Choir School in the United States.
Saint Paul’s Choir School is a school for boys in grades 3 through 8 and is a vital part of Saint Paul’s Parish in Harvard Square. Guided by the teachings of the Catholic Church, we work in partnership with committed parents and inspirational teachers to form the faith, character, and intellectual and musical abilities of our young men. Our goals are to help students pursue their highest God-given potential, prepare them for the strongest secondary schools and beyond, and equip them to become virtuous leaders who serve God and the world.
