PS&Co. to Donate 140 Laptops to Texas Nonprofits

For the past 70 years, Padgett Stratemann, the nation's 99th largest CPA firm according to INSIDE Public Accounting, has shown its commitment to the communities in which it does business by striving to be a leader in giving. Whether through monetary donations, providing time away from work for team members to serve on boards and committees, or through innovative programs, such as its Not-for-Profit Computer Donation Program, we believe giving to others is a reflection of the inner values held by our firm and its people. We hope every local not-for-profit organization will find this program an asset as they work to meet the needs of those who live in the Austin, Houston, San Antonio, and surrounding areas.

Program Objective
Donations are intended to further the charitable efforts and/or internal operations of the nonprofit organizations selected to receive the computers
