Making a Difference

At Cornerstone Research respect for every individual is core to our culture and values. As part of that commitment, we donate time and resources to a variety of organizations, both within and beyond our communities. We regularly donate to charities that support people experiencing crisis, including disaster relief, medical aid, and environmental recovery. The firm matches every dollar that employees donate.

Cornerstone Research Outreach Program

The Cornerstone Research Outreach Program (CROP) focuses on community outreach in the cities where our firm has offices. CROP raises money for an array of charitable organizations and relief efforts. Cornerstone Research matches every dollar donated by employees to CROP charities.
