The Hauser Group and its employees have had the pleasure of working to advance the St. Louis region through our relationships with many clients in the economic development, recreation, environmental and healthcare arenas. But our commitment to making St. Louis a better place to live, work and raise a family extends beyond what we do for work every day. While we’re active in our own back yards, serving as neighborhood co-captains, volleyball coaches, Sunday school teachers and more, we also find various other ways to put our time and talents to work in the community.
Pro bono Work
We regularly provide our services free of charge to help existing non-profit clients do more than their budgets can support. Examples of our contributions include:
PR Support for Ageless – Remarkable St. Louisans, an award-winning initiative that honors area individuals who are redefining retirement. We’ve provided hundreds of hours of pro bono media relations services for this annual event, the primary fundraiser for St. Andrew’s Resources for Seniors Charitable Foundation, which supports the provision of housing and supportive services to low-income and at-risk seniors in the St. Louis area, as well as the extension of financial aid to residents who have exhausted their resources. Each year, the organization serves over 5,000 people and provides more than $1.5 million in charitable care.
St. Louis Regional Clean Air Partnership, Advisory Committee Member – For more than 15 years, Julie Hauser has served on the advisory committee of the St. Louis Regional Clean Air Partnership and provided countless hours of additional staff time pro bono to support The Partnership’s work to increase awareness of regional air quality issues and to encourage activities to reduce air pollution emissions for the health and economic well-being of our region.
