Corporate Social Responsibility
We recognize that businesses play a central role in improving and sustaining the quality of life of their clients, employees and surrounding communities. Wedgewood Partners believes strongly in the words of famed Harvard Business School professor Rosabeth Moss Kanter, who observed that, detached from its values, money “may indeed be the root of all evil. Linked effectively to social purpose, it can be the root of opportunity.”
We therefore care deeply for individuals both within and outside Wedgewood Partners, as well as the surrounding communities in which we operate. We always serve with the best interests of our clients as our first priority. We also value the contributions of our team members and help support their personal and financial goals in the context of a healthy, productive and happy work environment.
We donate a portion of our profits to projects within our communities and actively encourage our associates to donate their "time, treasure and/or talent" to their communities in areas about which they are passionate.
Lastly, we strive to act responsibly towards the environment and support and/or encourage programs beyond our reach that foster stewardship and conservation of natural resources.
Some of the organizations/programs about which we are passionate include, but are not limited to: Criminal Justice Ministry (CJMSTLOUIS); Alternatives to Living in Violent Environments (ALIVE); Heart and Brain Foundation, research for brain cancer; Saint Louis University, a private Jesuit research university; Washington University in St. Louis, a private research university; the Saint Louis Zoo; St. Louis Area Food Bank; and St. Patrick Center, which provides assistance and opportunities to those who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
