Katherman, Briggs and Greenberg Community Fund
When attorneys from Katherman, Briggs and Greenberg (KBG) met with the Community Foundation, they realized that creating a fund through the Foundation would be the start of a great partnership. The partners of the firm were impressed with the number and variety of funds, and the confidence that so many have placed in the investment abilities of the Community Foundation. They determined that an endowed fund would be a visible and manageable way for KBG to encourage and organize their company’s community philanthropy as well as allow them the ability to make end-of-year gifts to the fund and decide later how to grant in a more strategic way. “KBG is proud to have established a permanent donor advised fund through which we will direct all of our charitable and community activities. We are thrilled to be part of the Foundation and to take part in creating a vibrant Central Pennsylvania for present and future generations,” said Brian Strong, a partner at the firm. “KBG recently celebrated its 30th anniversary and has a long-standing tradition of giving back to the community. The Community Foundation and its mission are completely compatible with the firm’s practice of helping people in need, and the new fund will allow this tradition to continue forever,” Brian added.
