The Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Mid-America Chapter named Shook, Hardy & Bacon its “2017 Business Philanthropist of the Year.”
The AFP selected Shook for playing an important role in advancing philanthropy. The firm was nominated for this important honor by the Legal Aid of Western Missouri, which provides pro bono comprehensive civil legal services to those who cannot afford an attorney, and Starlight Theatre, an iconic outdoor theatre.
“We are honored to be included with a forward-thinking group of businesses and individuals who truly understand the impact philanthropy can have on others to help a community realize its full potential,” said Shook Chair Madeleine McDonough.
Shook, along with others, will be celebrated at a National Philanthropy Day Event in Kansas City, November 9, 2017.
