Carmody believes in the adage “doing well by doing good,” and we are committed to public interest work and volunteerism. We invest our talent, time and enthusiasm in a wide variety of civic, charitable and nonprofit organizations in Connecticut and beyond. By fostering community partnerships and relationships, we have been involved in exciting and meaningful nonprofit work involving urban education, public health, domestic and substance abuse, and human rights issues.
