Through our “community partners” program, we have supported college preparation and graduation initiatives, established mentoring relationships, provided new computer labs for after-school and summer programs, supported arts education in public schools, and brought nutritious food to school children and their families.
William Blair and its foundation provide financial support to hundreds of charities through grants, sponsorships, and an employee matching-gifts program. Our employees also contribute to their communities through their time and leadership, and to support their engagement, we offer paid time off to volunteer.
In response to the European MiFID II Directive, William Blair Investment Management plans to absorb external research costs for clients globally, not just those subject to MiFID II’s research rules.
