Community Champions

Even though we have offices nationwide, we’re fiercely proud to call Chicago home. So the idea of giving back to our local community is a no-brainer.

Our Involvement

We've worked with hundreds of charities throughout our nearly 20 years in business. Here's a look at a few of them.

Our employees are given paid time off to volunteer at charitable organizations. Our San Francisco office volunteered when the forest fires ravaged Northern California. Our staff has packaged care kits for veterans overseas, and collected and distributed food at local depositories. Whatever you’re passionate about, we have staff who are too.

Special Olympics

Special Olympics is a sports organization that provides training and athletic competitions for kids and adults with intellectual disabilities.

Special Olympics Illinois holds more than 170 competitions every year and reaches more than 22,000 athletes.

Every year, LaSalle has become more involved with Special Olympics: LaSallians have refereed youth basketball games, bowling leagues and summer games, and raised more than $5,000 for the Polar Plunge, and last February, several LaSallians took the plunge!

Our Fallen Hero 5k Run/Walk

For the past four years, we’ve sponsored a local 5k race in honor of a solider Pfc. Aaron Toppen who lost his life to friendly fire while serving.

All race proceeds benefit the Pat Tillman Foundation, which supports military veterans and their families by offering educational sponsorships.

Last year, more than 40 LaSallians and their families joined the race in Mokena, IL
