Eckhoff and Company has been awarded 2018 Small Business of the Year for its outstanding commitment to San Rafael. The award was presented by the San Rafael Chamber of Commerce at its annual State of the City Dinner on April 6, 2018.
Nominees were selected for their outstanding contribution to San Rafael, significant contribution to strengthening the local economy and contributions to supporting community programs and organizations. “We’re thrilled to receive this award,” says Michele Hassid, Managing Partner. “It’s a testament to the commitment of our firm to see our local community thrive, and demonstrates the truth in our belief that strong business equals strong community. As a local business we excel at helping small to mid-sized businesses, their owners and executives achieve their goals, legacy and impact on the community.”
Eckhoff and Company participates as corporate sponsors in many community events and provides pro-bono work for several nonprofits. “We’re committed to the success of our clients as well as the communities in which they operate,” says Hassid. The company also participates in local university career workshops to support the growth of exceptional talent in San Rafael, and recently hired a student intern who gave a presentation at a Chamber event.
In addition to volunteering their time to support local causes, employees of the company developed a Jeans for Charity program, which allows them to wear jeans to work in exchange for donating money to a charity of their choice. Many of the donations are made to San Rafael charities in support of the local community.
