Kregel Gives Kula Project

To Rwanda,
with love

Empowering entrepreneurs to grow businesses
and break the cycle of poverty

Kregel Gives

We started Kregel & Company to improve business owners’ lives by providing opportunity, peace of mind, and inspiration.

We’re not only pursuing this mission by serving our accounting and tax customers, but also by giving back to organizations doing good in our city and around the world.

File taxes, fund dreams

We’re proud to come alongside Kula as part of our latest Kregel Gives campaign. After donating $30,000 in 2019-20, we have committed to donating an additional $35,000 from 2021-22 to help Kula empower women business owners in Rwanda. By contributing to Kula on behalf of our entrepreneurs, we look forward to helping their entrepreneurs grow businesses and break the cycle of poverty.
