BKD Foundation’s 2014 charitable giving surpasses $10 million

The BKD Foundation is the firm’s charitable arm. The BKD Foundation is solely funded by BKD partners’ and employees’ monetary contributions. It aims to enrich the communities BDK serves through financial donations and volunteerism. The foundation supports not-for-profit organizations of all types and sizes, including employees serving in volunteer roles.

Supporting youth organizations

While the BKD Foundation provided support to a number of Indiana organizations, it made significant contributions to causes that serve the state’s youth. Junior Achievement of Central Indiana, The Villages, Big Brother Big Sisters of Northeast Indiana and Boys & Girls Club of Evansville are just a few of the organizations that benefited from foundation dollars. But the support went beyond monetary, numerous employees also regularly volunteered.

Outside of youth-specific charities, the Indianapolis and Bloomington BKD offices continued its five-year donation commitment to the Eskenazi Health Foundation for its violence intervention program and to the Community Foundation of Bloomington and Monroe County, a nonprofit that supports local charities.

Indiana BKD employees personally went above and beyond with charity efforts by donating both money and time — to Habitat for Humanity homebuilding efforts, the Salvation Army Toy Town toy drive, the March of Dime and many more.

Surrounding communities

The Fort Wayne and Merrillville offices sponsored The Carriage House Dancing with the Fort Wayne Stars event. Several BKDers also volunteered to tabulate votes and help with event-related activities throughout the year.

In Evansville, the team chose to support Community One, a local nonprofit dedicated to housing restoration and community development needs.
