At Aequitas, we work to be part of the neighborhood and community, which is why we handle requests for donations and community events in our office. At least once per month, a nonprofit organization is invited to present to Aequitas management and staff. Together, we stop what we're doing, gather in a huge conference room, and listen intently. We may not always choose to invest in the charity, but we make sure they do not leave empty handed. We write them a check for $250 on the spot.
