Our Community

Our philanthropic spirit is embedded in the phrase “Building Better Futures.” The phrase describes not only our commitment to helping clients build better futures, but also our commitment to helping build better futures for fellow citizens, organizations and our communities.

Our firm, and the individuals in our firm, gives back in numerous ways. We make direct company contributions, and we sponsor local events in and near New Providence, NJ, and Bonita Springs, FL, where our two offices are located. Our company contributes on behalf of our employees to causes they hold dear, and, in lieu of holiday gifts, contributes to charities designated by our clients. More than 100 organizations have benefited from our financial support in the last five years.

We also donate our time and effort. Our co-founders, Diahann W. Lassus and Clare E. Wherley, lead by example. They have held numerous leadership positions in volunteer organizations that are doing important work on behalf of women, animals, children, and many others.

We applaud everyone who is doing work for those in need.

The Christmas Wish List


A local nonprofit organization assists families with financial needs and during the Christmas holidays, some of the local needy families compose a Christmas Wish List.  Items may include, winter coats, PJs, home appliances and of course toys for the children.  Lassus Wherley employees consistently adopt two families and not only provide the items on the family’s list, but often times go above and beyond with additional gifts of gift cards to local supermarkets and retail stores.  All the gifts are packaged, wrapped and ready to be delivered by Santa’s elves.  The nonprofit organization is always eternally grateful to Lassus Wherley for supporting the community and making the lives of some of its residents a little bit brighter.
