Crowe Chizek and Company LLC last week launched a fund-raising effort among it personnel helping to raise money for the countless victims still reeling from the devastation of Hurricane Katrina.

The funds raised will be sent to the American Red Cross and Habitat for Humanity designated for use in Hurricane Katrina relief efforts.

“The outpouring of concern from our Crowe family and the desire to do something to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina has been overwhelming,” said Mark Hildebrand, Crowe CEO. “Caring and sharing are two of our core values, and once again our people have embraced those values to reach out to help those in need.”

The decision to work through the American Red Cross and Habitat for Humanity was based on their established resources and ongoing efforts in hurricane-ravaged portions of Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana.

“Crowe established this matching fund so that contributions from our people can go even further in assisting those in the need after this enormous tragedy,” said Bob Herr, chairman of Crowe’s firm-wide charitable contributions committee. “The American Red Cross and Habitat for Humanity were organizations suggested to us by our people, many of whom volunteer for these organizations.”

As Herr’s title suggests, this is not the first charitable effort undertaken by Crowe Chizek. Earlier this year, the firm collected $76,000 from staff and provided a matching $50,000 donation through a similar fund-raising effort aiding relief efforts for the victims of the tsunami in South Asia. Those donations were sent to the American Red Cross and UNICEF.
