Community Involvement

As a civic leader, KLJ strongly supports the communities we serve through corporate sponsorships and charitable giving, as well as employee volunteer efforts.

KLJ employees dedicate hundreds of hours each year to participate in volunteer initiatives. Our employees are active members of multiple local and national organizations and serve on the Board of Directors for many organizations including medical facilities, universities and local Chambers of Commerce.



Supporting Important Causes
The company is committed to helping those in need through sponsorships and by participating in several charity events. Most recently, KLJ helped support local children with cerebral palsy and related disabilities by raising funds to assist families with medical expenses not covered by insurance through a platinum sponsorship for the 2012 Great American Bike Race.

KLJ employees also braved the shave and shaved their heads to raise funds to support research to find cures for childhood cancers at the 2011 St. Baldricks Fundraiser.

 

Building Strong Communities
KLJ is dedicated to helping community members live in a safe and healthy environment and actively participated in the Rebuilding Together fundraiser and the 2012 United Way Day of Caring.

 

Helping Out Far From Home
Since 1998, KLJ has been a corporate sponsor of the GOD’S CHILD Project, an international organization dedicated to reducing poverty and protecting human rights through health, education and community. KLJ senior executive leaders annually select four KLJ team members to join the charity’s service team in Antigua, Guatemala for two weeks, one week which is paid by the firm. The service team works to improve living conditions of Guatemalan families in need.

KLJ’s charitable contributions committee reinforces our company’s mission by annually identifying a variety of charities to support through employee donations. The firm matches employee contributions dollar for dollar, benefiting organizations such as Hospice, United Way, American Cancer Society and local food pantries.
