BKD Donates More Than $500,000 to Local Communities
NATIONAL OFFICE – On May 28, BKD CPAs & Advisors launched a firmwide giving campaign to help those struggling due to the current economic challenges. The two-week campaign combined individual personnel donations with BKD partner and BKD Foundation matches. The personnel, partners and firm pitched in together to raise more than $500,000.
The giving campaign was locally focused and will have a national effect across the regions where BKD personnel work and live. Funds will be donated to local food banks and food pantries or United Way organizations, per office discretion.
“Part of BKD’s purpose and mission is to positively impact communities. I am truly humbled by the generosity of our BKD family. It’s inspiring to see our team live out our values and create positive change,” CEO Ted Dickman said. “This has been an incredibly challenging time for everyone, and we’re excited to help those who have been affected by this pandemic.”
The BKD Foundation was founded in 1999 and is BKD’s charitable arm. It aims to enrich the communities BKD serves through financial donations and volunteerism. Since 2000, the foundation has contributed more than $14 million.
