"It has been a great first year, and the regional Foundation Boards and I want to thank everyone who has participated by contributing, volunteering or both.”

Jeffrey Weiner, Marcum’s managing partner, added, per a statement: “In just one year, the Marcum Foundation has become an important part of our culture Firm-wide. Community is one of Marcum’s nine core values, and I can’t think of a better way to express it than by enabling the entire Marcum team to collaborate in this way to give back to the communities in which we do business.”
