Strengthening Our Community

As an active leader in the Capital Region where our employees and clients live, we take pride in this place we call home and the investments we have made toward its growth and prosperity. We work hard to ensure this philosophy shines through in our work. We give in many ways, including donations, sponsorships, board and committee service, teaching, and volunteerism. We encourage everyone to dedicate resources towards making a difference.

Sharing Our Expertise

We are firm believers in sharing and developing the accounting and financial services professions. We bring practical application when teaching at colleges and provide professional firsthand experience through our internship programs. We host educational programs, like Maximize Your Mission, Theory to Practice, and other events to inform the community and generously share our expertise about current trends in accounting, management, and leadership. BST is sought after to present at national and regional industry and professional association events.

Day of Service

BST is devoted to our annual Day of Service and supports the entire team to participate by closing the office. Each year, we select different not-for-profits to help. Depending on the organizations’ needs, the tasks we perform differ. Our goal is to be as impactful as possible, so we divide and conquer by organizing into teams with various skillsets and from different departments. Giving back to the community is essential but understanding why we are there and whom we are doing service for is just as important.

When we arrive at our site, we learn about the not-for-profit’s history and mission from the Organization’s staff. After, the team is put to the test with our assignments. Whether it’s tie-dyeing with the children at The Boys and Girls Club, cleaning lockers for Vanderheyden Hall, painting residences for Living Resources, or landscaping for St. Anne Institute, we are having fun while making a meaningful difference for some great organizations in the community. It’s our small way of saying thanks.

Serving others builds our internal team and fosters our culture. Our Day of Service is a team effort and represents the spirit of volunteerism we share with our employees. 

If you are a not-for-profit in the Capital Region in need of volunteers for a day, please send a description of your project to shilson@bstco.com. We will review your request and consider it for our Day of Service.

To give back, you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is integrity.
