"We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give."
- Winston Churchill
Giving back enriches our community and enriches ourselves. This is why the team at Deckelbaum & Associates makes charitable giving central to the work we do. We are deeply involved in many charities that support the community we love.
Since 2009, Rick has served on the Board of Directors for Make-A-Wish® Eastern North Carolina. During the time, this local chapter grew from granting 100 wishes to kids with life-threatening medical conditions between the ages from of 2 ½ and 18 to today, where more than 200 wishes are granted each year. In six years of Rick’s involvement, charitable giving has grown from $1 million to $3 million annually.
Every 38 minutes Make-A-Wish® grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition in the United States and its territories. At Deckelbaum & Associates, we believe that a wish experience can be a game-changer that will positively impact the lives of kids right here in our own community.
By linking our business community to this and other worthwhile charities, we know that our business leaders are making a conscious and enormous impact on the quality of life for thousands of individuals and families right here at home.
