C Squared Writes $100,000 Out to Charities
Carty Davis of C Squared Advisors
As part of its new charitable initiative, C Squared Gives Back, investment banking firm C Squared Advisors recently announced an inaugural donation of more than $100,000 to benefit 15-plus charities nationwide. The program was established in 2019 to give C Squared and its clients a way to give back to both the franchising industry and organizations in the communities where they work and live.
C Squared is allocating a substantial portion of all transaction success fees toward charitable organizations, with the company’s clients directing half of the donated funds to a charity of their choice while the principals at C Squared direct the remaining funds.
Each of C Squared’s principals—Carty Davis, Dan Connelly, Pat McCauley, and Brent Elsass—have the opportunity to designate donations to charities and organizations that are close to their hearts.
“One of the primary reasons Pat, Brent and I all joined C Squared was the charitable mindset,” Connelly said. “It’s been so rewarding being in a position to make a difference, even in a small way, for things we care about.”
And it is a win for clients, said McCauley. “They appreciate that money is going to a charity close to their hearts.”
"For me it is big, I am a believer in giving back,” said Davis. “I feel like most of the people we are associated with professionally, we are on the lucky side of the equation. It is our obligation as successful businesspeople to give back. I feel like that in my core.”
