Community Involvement plays a critical role in Baird culture. Baird associates’ passions for giving are supported in many ways. Baird Cares provides associates with an extra paid day off each year to volunteer in their communities, The Baird Foundation Matching Gift Program matches a portion of Baird associations’ nonprofit contributions, and The Brenton H. Rupple Citizenship Award honors associates who make outstanding contributions to civic, charitable, and academic organizations. The emphasis on community involvement at Baird allows associates to maintain a balance between home, community, and work. Learn more about Baird’s Community Involvement here.


Baird Gives Back Week in Edina

Baird associates are encouraged to participate in Baird Gives Back Week, an annual event in the spring that inspires generosity and active involvement through volunteer opportunities. This year, the Edina Branch supported Oasis For Youth—a community based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping the growing population of homeless and precariously housed youth in Bloomington, Richfield, and Edina, Minnesota. The branch raised funds through a raffle and a chili lunch competition.
