Philanthropy

At KNN, we believe it is important to give back to the communities in which we live and work. In December 2016, KNN proudly adopted an annual charitable giving program. Under this program, each employee identifies a charitable organization of their choice to which KNN donates $500, with no employee match required. We also support various other charitable organizations, often in response to local or national emergencies, such as the North Bay fires and the Houston flooding.

Annual Charitable Giving Program

In 2016, KNN donated $10,000 to 15 charities under the program, and in 2017 KNN donated $9,000 to 18 charities under the program. The charitable organizations we have supported through this program include the following:
