Brilliant gives back.


Brilliant’s mission is to make people’s lives better and that includes our clients, candidates, colleagues— and our communities!

We work with various local charities in both the greater Chicago area and south Florida to help those in need improve their quality of life. Whether they are homeless, underserved, undernourished or suffering in any capacity, we want to make a difference and be a positive influence in their lives.

Brilliant has teamed up with organizations such as A Safe Haven, Make a Wish Foundation Southern Florida, Feed My Starving Children, and others, to make an impact across the nation and the world.

A Safe Haven Foundation is a social enterprise that helps people aspire, transform and sustain their lives as they transition from homelessness to self-sufficiency with pride and purpose. Some of the populations served include military veterans, families, non-violent criminal justice impacted populations, as well as men, women and children.

In December 2016, Brilliant organized a holiday party for women and children of A Safe Haven complete with cookie decorating, create-your-own ornaments, ring toss games, a hot chocolate bar and more winter activities. Learn more here.

In February 2016, Brilliant volunteered after office hours at the Chicago Auto Show to collect canned goods for the families of A Safe Haven. This food drive brought in hundreds of cans of food that all were distributed to the residents in the shelters.

In July 2015, Brilliant hosted an Activity Day for residents including children and families, and participated in fun games, sports, face painting, and other summer activities. Learn more here.

Make-a-Wish Foundation Southern Florida

Make-A-Wish believes in the power of a child’s wish. They make life better for kids with life-threatening medical conditions. Starting with one boy’s wish of owning a computer, the organization has now grown to grant a wish every 16 hours. Granting wishes takes hundreds of individuals and entities that are committed to making a difference. Brilliant’s Fort Lauderdale location is an active partner of Make-A-Wish Southern Florida.

Feed My Starving Children

Founded in 1987, Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is a Christian non-profit organization committed to feeding hungry children across the globe. Volunteers hand-pack meals specially formulated for malnourished children, and send the meals to orphanages, schools, clinics and feeding programs around the world in efforts to break the cycle of poverty. FMSC food has reached nearly 70 countries in its history.

In December 2014, Brilliant team members prepared food boxes for underprivileged children on two different occasions. More than 22,248 meals were prepared the first day and a whopping 33,696 meals were boxed the second day. Learn More.

Each year, Brilliant awards two upper-level accountancy students from Northern Illinois University (NIU) with $2,000 academic scholarships for the coming year.

The scholarship recipients are selected by the NIU Accountancy Department Awards Committee and are based off of various academic criteria.

Brilliant CEO and NIU alum Jim Wong, CPA (Inactive) says of these scholarships, “It’s a privilege to award these young individuals with resources to support their accountancy studies. Years ago, I received the same award from the NIU Accountancy Program. I’m happy to give back to the school that helped catapult my career by paying it forward to these deserving students.”
