In the weeks after Hurricane Harvey brought terrible flooding to the Houston metro area, employees at BKD CPAs & Advisors donated more than $150,000 to relief organizations and to assist Houston co-workers affected by the storm.
“Several came to firm leaders right away asking how they could help,” said BKD CEO Ted Dickman. “I was touched by their desire to lend a helping hand and amazed at their generosity.”
The BKD Foundation, which supports charitable organizations throughout the firm’s footprint and beyond with financial contributions and volunteerism, gave more than $130,000 to four different charitable organizations. The foundation matched contributions dollar for dollar up to $40,000 total to The American National Red Cross Hurricane Harvey Fund, United Way Harvey Recovery Fund, Houston Food Bank Harvey Disaster Relief or Convoy of Hope Hurricane Harvey Response.
In addition, BKD employees throughout the firm raised more than $28,000 for Houston colleagues displaced by the flooding. The campaign—organized through charitable crowdfunding website YouCaring—gave funds directly to Houston employees and their families. Firm partners matched contributions dollar for dollar up to $10,000 total.
