Portfolio CSR’s First Client

In November of 2016, Portfolio CSR CEO Jake and Portfolio PFA CEO Carly secured their very first Corporate Social Responsibility client: Progressive Investment Management.

Both Jake and Carly gave presentations to Mr. Carsten Henningsen, the Investment Advisor and co-founder of Progressive Investment Management. As a result of their successful presentations Jake and Carly secured a $1,000 matching donation from Progressive Investment Management.

The $1,000 CSR matching donation was applied toward this November 10, 2016 fundraiser:
