Just as BKD has built its reputation on delivering unmatched client service, the firm’s charitable arm has become synonymous with unmatched community service. The BKD Foundation empowers partners and employees to give back through a combination of sponsorships, grants and volunteerism.
In the face of changing conditions and a recovering economy, foundation support remained steadfast in 2012. Donations totaled nearly $1 million, pushing the foundation’s total charitable giving to more than $8 million since the first gift in February 2000 and helping hundreds of outstanding organizations and worthwhile causes reach those with the greatest need.
From the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation to the American Red Cross, the firm’s charitable arm supported several large organizations. Locally, foundation dollars bolstered countless community-based recipients, including the Eskenazi Health Foundation in Indianapolis, Fort Wayne’s Arts United Campus Project, Care and Share Food Bank in Colorado Springs and Crusade for Children in Louisville.
Beyond the foundation, BKD partners and employees contributed nearly $1 million to United Way in 2012. BKDers acting outside the foundation also volunteered for a variety of groups, including CASA, the Salvation Army, Toys for Tots, Alzheimer’s Association, March of Dimes and American Cancer Society.
