In November of 2016, Portfolio CSR CEO Jake and Portfolio PFA CEO Carly secured their very first Corporate Social Responsibility sponsor: 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:
