Blue Bear Foundation
It is always been my family's belief that knowledge is power and education is the best way to change anyone's station in life. Because women are such an important part of my entire my family dynamic, there is a special need to raise awareness and support for this specific industry. We want to financially support women who try so hard to improve their lives and the lives of their children.
Because of this love for all the women in our lives and in our family we promote the Blue Bear Foundation, an organization to help them stand up but not to become a crutch. Blue Bear Foundation is the charitable arm of our business, Blue Bear Tax Solutions. As the chairman of this organization I have seen first hand how women are sorely under-represented in the world of accounting/ finance. We believe that we can change things, even if just a little. Promoting education is the venue we have choosen to show our support to women with an emphasis on veterans.
