Businesses Giving Back


Formed in 1946, LaPorte is one of the largest full-service independent accounting and advisory firms in the region. LaPorte has experienced tremendous growth over the last decade and now has offices in Metairie, Baton Rouge, Covington, Houma, and Houston. With over 190 personnel, we are a Top 200 accounting firm and have received recognition as a best place to work for nine consecutive years.


At LaPorte, we understand the importance of community: being part of one, being able to depend on one, and giving back to one. Our people live this core value through their demonstrated spirit of volunteerism across a variety of individual and firm-wide philanthropic efforts and community activities. LaPorte donates more than $350,000 annually in time and money to various and diverse community and civic organizations. Additionally, employees support nearly 90 local and regional organizations as members and/or on committees and boards.


We demonstrate community involvement, fundraising, and volunteerism throughout the year in many ways. Below are three:

 Knowing charitable contributions are most plentiful during year-end holidays, LaPorte has launched an annual springtime event. Selecting local charitable organizations, our offices’ LaPorte Gives Back events have included egg hunts, a baby shower, and food and school supply collections.

 During the firm’s annual Dress Up for Charity, firm directors are asked to dress up for the charity of their choice. The amount of money they raise determines the extent of their outfits. Last year, the event raised $3,257 for seven charities and foundations.

 One day each year, LaPorte employees come together in one location for firm meeting day. An essential part of the day is the all-employee volunteer event. In 2015, we held a Bike Build. We built the bikes, and Hands-On New Orleans helped identify charitable organizations through which we were able to distribute them to children, as gifts from the parents, in each of our five office locations.
