At Kenny & Company, we believe it is our business and personal responsibility to support the communities in which we live and work. We dedicate a portion of our firm’s resources to these endeavors.
Through direct financial contributions, volunteering consultant time, and matching donations, we connect with organizations that positively impact those in need.
Our annual Philanthropy executive identifies worthy organizations and/or causes and works with other Kenny & Company Partners to set and allocate our donation amount each year. Our consultants volunteer their time to Kenny & Company selected organizations or self-selected causes.
