It’s been a big year at Topline Strategy so, this holiday season, the firm is looking to give back in a big way.  Topline provides a donation on behalf of each employee to the charity of their choice.  See below for the charities employees selected:

Jake Biderman
Recipient: Unbound (Unbound partners with families living in poverty, empowering them to become self-sufficient
and fulfill their desired potential)
“Unbound does vital work for communities around the world to help the most vulnerable, and I think it’s the job of those born into fortunate circumstances to help those who were not. They also have some of the lowest overhead of any charity, meaning each dollar is helping more than its worth.”

Jay Chakraborty
Recipient: World Wildlife Fund (Our mission is to conserve nature and reduce the most pressing threats to the diversity of life on Earth.)
