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
As part of our Kregel Gives campaign, we partnered with Kula to donate $75,000 over the course of three years ($10,000 more than our original goal!), which went toward empowering 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.
Here’s how it worked:
Kregel & Company clients filed their taxes through our team.
Kregel contributed $60 for every tax return to Kula’s new Women’s Center.
Local women used the Center to grow businesses and break the poverty cycle.
Kula believes charity will not
eradicate poverty, but business will.
Kula + Kregel & Company
Our team is inspired by Kula’s mission to eradicate poverty by developing entrepreneurs. From 2019-2022, Kregel & Company donated $75,000 to help fund Kula’s new Women’s Center in Rwanda and provide business training, life and leadership training, and mentorship to over 115 women “fellows.”

Small donations, big impact
For every customer who filed their taxes with our team in 2020, 2021, and 2022, we donated to fund the construction of Kula’s new Women’s Center. This Women’s Center provides fellows with industry training, business investment, and life and leadership skills so they can build profitable businesses, raise healthy families, and send their children to school.
