|This year, the partners at Linkenheimer, along with other Alliott Group members from across the globe, will be working together to support the UK based charity Play for Progress, which works to make a difference in the lives of refugee children both at home in the UK and abroad.
Hundreds of unaccompanied child refugees have arrived in the UK against all odds, and are in the long and arduous process of trying to gain asylum status. During this time, many of these young people are placed in foster care and some face delays enrolling in education.
Play for Progress offers these children ways to connect with the diverse and often overwhelming city that is London, and to explore and develop their own creative potential. […]

Community involvement is one of the reasons Sonoma County is so special. With over 1,300 registered non-profit agencies that generated over $1.2 billion dollars and employs 16,000 people, it’s easy to see why we live in one of the most charitable counties in the United States. And people like Willie and Carlos Tamayo, David Ortega, Octavio Diaz and Marco Lepe are models of that community first, give back attitude. We are proud to see our friends and clients recognized and honored by the North Bay Business Journal with their 2016 Latino Business Leadership Award.

Congratulations to managing partner John Jones, winner of the CalCPA Public Service Award and featured on the cover of the August 2016 CalCPA magazine. The award recognized him for his public service both locally and globally, where over the course of the past 9 years, he has lead teams into rural Nicaragua and distributed over 20,000 pairs of eye glasses to the people there, who otherwise would never receive the gift of vision.

For his efforts to improve the eyesight of underprivileged people in Third World countries, John Jones, CPA, has received the 2016 Public Service Award from the California Society of CPAs.
The annual award recognizes an individual CalCPA member for services to the community or for governmental service in either a volunteer or elected capacity.
Jones, managing partner of Linkenheimer LLP CPAs & Advisors in Santa Rosa, has led missions with the Santa Rosa Sunrise Rotary Club and St. Mark Lutheran Church to provide eyeglasses and vision correction to villagers in remote parts of the world. For over 21 years he has made eye-care trips to Nicaragua, Mexico, Haiti, Guatemala, Samoa and Vietnam.
He estimates that he has personally examined more than 18,000 people for vision needs and eye problems, including cataracts and pterygiums.
“John exemplifies the meaning of service,” said Lynette Atchley, chair of the public service selection committee. “His dedication to helping the underprivileged is inspiring and sets a high bar for those who will be considered for this honor in the future.”
Jones is past president of the California Group of Accounting Firms, past president of the Rohnert Park – Cotati Rotary Club, […]
Today 1344 eyes are smiling, seeing “mas claro” in 672 very grateful Nicaraguans in the Rio San Juan Region of southern Nicaragua. Many of the those same people are equipped with both distance and near pair of glasses and protective sunglasses, “gafas” to keep damaging UV rays off their eyes. In addition, 103 mouths are “mucho mas limpio”, reflecting improved oral health and a shift in treatment from extraction to restoration and prevention.
This year, the returning Nicaraguan Couple-Dentists Javier and Ana from the 200 km north capital Managua again worked with a Dental Hygienist from the Sabalos Regional Clinic to treat patients from pre-teen to “viejo”, senior citizens. Peter Hoberg accepted the crucial role of instrument sterilizer, earning himself the unenviable evidence of chemically stained orange fingers. Fortunately he did not exhibit any apparent cognitive lapses while on duty.
Over the course of three days, Sunrise Rotarians and some of their family focused on improving people’s visual acuity. Steve “Grandpa” Zwick was the third generation in his family represented and remarkably both his daughter Jennifer and granddaughter Alessa brought valuable Spanish language and organizational skills. Steve’s español is well known! Alessa, just 12, quickly established […]
So what do Bear Republic Brewing Co. and Linkenheimer LLP CPAs & Advisors have in common? The answer is simple: Great people who are passionate about what they do and two companies that understand the importance of a team approach. And, the proof is in the pudding- or in this case- the beer: Winner of the Excellence in Craft Beer Industry Award for 2014, medals two years in a row for the Good Food Awards, medals at the Great American Beer Festival for 2004, 2006, 2012 and 2015, Racer 5 Gold medal at the 2015 Central California Craft Beer Competition, and the list goes on. But more importantly, they were awarded the Best Place to Work award in 2014 by the North Bay Business Journal, recognizing their commitment and dedication to their team. Much like Linkenheimer, who has won the Best Place to Work awards for 2015, 2014, 2013, 2010, along with the Inside Public Accounting Best of the Best firms for 2015, they realize the team is our greatest asset. We focus on our people, community, and company culture, which allows us to provide the best possible team approach to […]
On Tuesday evening, Linkenheimer staff, families and friends spent two hours helping the Redwood Empire Food Bank fill 3 and 5 pound bags of apples for distribution to those in need. Over the course of the evening, Linkenheimer filled and bagged 3,000 pounds of red apples. The summer months are critical for the REFB as they receive the most product during that time, yet it also proves to be one of the hardest times of the year to find volunteers. With schools out of session, their student base of volunteers typically dries up and other volunteer’s schedules are filled with summer trips and other events. Linkenheimer is honored to be able to assist the REFB and the local community that has given so much to us a firm. To find out how you can assist them, please check out their website: http://www.refb.org/

THE HUMAN RACE — “Take a Walk on the WILD Side!”
To our friends,family and clients,
Do you know that nearly 80% of Nicaraguan’s live on less than $2 a day and the vast majority are living at or below the poverty line? Whether it’s putting food on the table, receiving medical attention, or caring for the elderly or sick, their communities are in need and resources are limited. Those of us with the ability to give time or money should be doing all we can to ease our global communities burdens. That’s why we’re excited to participate in the 2015 Human Race this spring. The funds we raise will go to support Santa Rosa Sunrise Rotary Foundation (which will go towards the surgery center to be constructed in the village of Sabalos and the Rio San Juan Relief) in their efforts to provide medical relief to those who live in remote areas where it is otherwise unattainable. Our team at Linkenheimer spent over a week in the jungles of Nicaragua helping the people and providing medical assistance. It was life changing for those who participated and we are excited to give back to this […]
