DoveLewis received donation from Whitman Partners
It’s no secret that Whitman Partners really loves dogs. We have a dog-friendly office environment and have even named our candidate and client portal, Franz, after one of our office pooches. Truly, Whitman Partners is a puppy lovers paradise.
As a part of our ongoing philanthropic mission, Whitman Partners recently held an employee-managed garage sale and donated the proceeds to DoveLewis, a non-profit organization that helps animals. Josiah Whitman, owner and managing partner at Whitman Partners, came up with the original idea. However, it was Jordan Winczewski, Associate Portfolio Manager, that gave it her all to ensure a successful sale!
Whitman Partners sold furniture and other unused office items at the sale. Ultimately, we raised a grand total of $539 to help sick and injured animals!
