community service

Courington, Kiefer & Sommers, L.L.C. is deeply committed to community service. Through our unique and successful Non-Profit of the Month program, the firm welcomes client and employee suggestions for charitable causes to which the firm makes a monetary contribution each month. As a further example of our commitment to community service we also contribute to microloans through the non-profit Kiva. Non-profits that have benefited from the program include: LSU Camp Tiger, the American Heart Association, Writers in Schools, the ASPCA, AIDS Response Seacoast, Philadelphia Global Water Initiative, Children's Miracle Network, Smile Train, the National Brain Tumor Society, Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, Golfer's Against Cancer, Amber Plan Partners, Texas Center for Missing Children, Team Gleason (a non-profit for ALS victims started by former New Orleans Saint Steve Gleason), Louisiana Fallen Officers Fund, Women LEAD, Devon's Den (Tulane graduate Devon Walker, sustained a severe spinal cord injury while playing in the Tulane vs. Tulsa football game in Tulsa, Okla., on September 8, 2012), Somaly Mam Foundation, Ednas Maternity Hospital, Fonkoze USA, Shining Hope, Women for Women, Aschiana Foundation, New Horizon Center for Children with Disabilities, Gerry's Food Pantry, Canine Angels, Secret Garden Tours (benefiting the Brain Injury Association of Louisiana), Friends of Ngong Road, and the Melanoma Research Foundation.

Further, our firm has given significant financial support and time to pro bono cases for indigent individuals. We have adopted a U.S. Paratrooper Unit stationed in Afghanistan to which we send regular packages and we participate in the ACP Advisornet program which is an online network of volunteer Advisors who commit to sharing their business expertise and advice with military veterans and their immediate family. We also support Angel's in Need whose mission it is to enrich the lives of Romanian children and families by supporting already existing programs and organizations as well as aiding in the development, implementation, and financial support of programs where they are non-existent. CKS also seeks to support companies owned by women and minorities whenever possible.

annual non-profit

2018: FRIENDS OF NGONG ROAD ANNUAL SPONSORSHIP OF A YOUNG GIRL Friends of Ngong Road (FoNR), a Minnesota-based 501(c)(3), and Ngong Road Children Association (NRCA), a registered Kenya NGO, operate with the shared mission of providing education and support for impoverished Nairobi children whose families have been affected by HIV/AIDS.

The devastation caused by HIV/AIDS in Kenya has left the country with approximately 1 million orphaned children and many more living with a surviving HIV+ parent. Children in this program all live in the slums of Dagoretti, Nairobi where the median household income is under two dollars per day. Approximately 50% of the children in the program are orphans and the other 50% live with a surviving HIV+ parent; 5% of children in the program are themselves HIV+. Without the opportunity provided by a high-quality education, these children would be sentenced to lives of continuing poverty and would be an economic drag on Kenyan society. Unfortunately, Kenya's public education system is not up to the task as it is woefully underfunded and inconsistent in quality. FoNR believes that placing at-risk children in high-performing private schools for primary education and public high schools gives them the best chance of success and will have a long-term positive ripple effect on Kenya, Africa and the world.

Also in February 2014, and continuing now in 2018, we began an annual sponsorship of a child with the ANGEL'S IN NEED organization whose mission is to serve children with special needs and their families both locally and abroad. Our goal is to enrich the lives of these children and families by supporting already existing programs and organizations devoted to our cause as well as aiding in the development, implementation and financial support of programs where they are non-existent, all in an attempt to provide the children with opportunity and a sense of community in which to blossom. Angel's in Need, Inc. operates on a strictly volunteer basis. We are a 100% volunteer, 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization.

FEBRUARY 2018:  Stanford for Joyful Heart Foundation 2018
Joyful Heart Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to healing, empowering, and advocating for survivors of sexual violence. Some of their key projects include sponsoring the "NO MORE" campaign to dispel rape myths, hosting survivor healing and trauma care retreats, and putting an end to the backlog of untested rape kits in justice departments around the United States. As many of you know, the Stanford campus has been rocked by sexual violence - both in the headlines, and behind the scenes. This issue is incredibly sensitive, incredibly difficult, and incredibly pervasive. We seek to give to an organization we believe has the tools and the platform to navigate these complexities with grace, courage, and strength. Please join us in supporting JHF with an unwavering vision and a Joyful Heart.
