JMA Supports Mikey’s Way
JMA partner Denise Veloski and accountant Scott Dill brought their significant others to support the Mikey’s Way Foundation at the charity’s annual fundraiser.
The mission of the Mikey’s Way Foundation is to enrich the lives of children who suffer from cancer or other life-threatening illnesses. Their goal is to create a connection and a diversion, which helps children cope with the emotional and physical hardships of long-term and debilitating treatment.
In addition to attendance at the event, JMA also made a donation to the Foundation.
JMA Volunteers at NCCF Flapjack Fundraiser
A group from JMA volunteered to help the Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation (NCCF) at their Flapjack and Basket Raffle Fundraiser, held March 24th at Applebee’s in Dunkirk. The event benefitted NCCF’s Service Learning Mini-Grant Program. JMA volunteers included partners Dave Mackowiak, Kevin Wystup, and Denise Veloski, along with Scott Dill, John Perry, and Kathy Furness.
The NCCF serves to be a catalyst for the establishment of endowments to benefit the community both now and in the future; to provide a vehicle for donors’ varied interests; to promote local philanthropy; to serve as a steward of funds; and to provide leadership and resources in addressing local challenges and opportunities.

Giving back — to help keep the communities in which we live and work strong and vital — is a way of life here at Johnson, Mackowiak & Associates, LLP. It’s a commitment that is at the core of our culture.
In fact, over the years, our partners have donated countless hours, expertise and funds to area non-profits, as well as served on numerous boards and committees throughout Chautauqua County and Western New York. They’ve each won numerous awards as a result of their volunteer work.
Likewise, our professional staff volunteers regularly with a variety of non-profit and community organizations throughout the area. For instance, JMA accountant and Dunkirk resident Michele Szalkowski volunteers as a wish granter through the local Make-A-Wish Foundation chapter. As a wish granting volunteer, Michele has worked on more than 40 wishes, including one for a child who wanted to go on a Nickelodeon cruise only to be slimed.
“It was something that I always wanted to do. I had a family member get a wish. I also had a family member who was ill when they were young spending time up at Roswell,” Szalkowski said. “It’s just very rewarding. It’s a rewarding endeavor just to see their faces.”
In addition, JMA accountant Scott Dill serves as the nominating committee chair on the Executive Committee of the United Way of Northern Chautauqua County.
JMA has an established Endowment Fund with the Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation.
