At KGWP we care about those less fortunate.Â A number of years ago the firm began to make contributions to local and national charities in lieu of client holiday gifts.
The firm encourages clients to give to those less fortunate.Â Most people have causes they are passionate about.Â If you have one, KGWP will help you determine to what extent you can financially supportÂ the people or foundations that matter most to you. If you do not have a cause you are passionate about, the following list of charities are close to our heart which we support.
The Smile Train
The Smile Train strives to help every child born with a cleft anywhere in the developing world. They know these children have the opportunity to live a full, productive life. Most cannot eat or speak properly. Aren’t allowed to attend school or hold a job. And face very difficult lives filled with shame and isolation, pain and heartache. Their clefts usually go untreated because they are poor â€“ too poor to pay for a simple surgery that has been around for decades. More information can be found on www.smiletrain.org
Save The Children
When disaster strikes around the world, Save the Children is there to save lives with food, medical care and education and remains to help communities rebuild through long-term recovery programs. As quickly and as effectively as Save the Children responds to tsunamis and civil conflict, it works to resolve the ongoing struggles children face every day â€” poverty, hunger, illiteracy and disease â€” and replaces them with hope for the future.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
The mission of St. Jude Childrenâ€™s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision ofÂ the founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay.Â On average, 7,800 active patients visit the hospital each year, most of whom are treated on an outpatient basis.
The Wounded Warrior Project
The mission of WWP is to foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history. Â They intend to fulfill their mission by raising awareness and enlisting the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members, by helping injured service members aid and assist each other and by providing unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members.
