Making a Difference in 2023

During this month that is often described as a “Season of Giving," it seems fitting to highlight the many organizations that Adams Keegan has contributed to in the calendar year of 2023.

Several years ago, Jay Keegan had an idea to allow the previous winners of the coveted “Employee of the Year” award to discuss and vote on all charitable donation requests that have been submitted to Adams Keegan by employees or by the organizations themselves. As a result, Adams Keegan’s giving has become more expansive, more intentional, more diverse, and arguably more meaningful to those doing good work in the communities that our employees care about so deeply.

Below are the recipients of charitable donations in 2023, which are partially funded by blue jean fund deductions, and a few additional organizations Adams Keegan has selected to sponsor:

  • Church Health – Serves uninsured individuals and their families by reclaiming the church’s biblical commitment to care for our bodies and our spirits.
  • Raising a Reader Massachusetts – An early literacy family engagement organization with a mission to close the literacy gap among children from birth to age six in under-resourced communities surrounding Boston.
  • Memphis Child Advocacy Center – Works to create a community where children are safe, families are strong, and victims become children again. Serves children who are victims of sexual and/or severe physical abuse through prevention, education, and intervention.
  • Arise2Read – Builds one-on-one connections with students in Shelby County to improve literacy skills, provide faith-based support, and works together to make our community a better place. Their vision is a community where every child is literate, feels valued, and can realize their God-given potential.
  • Shelby Farms Park Conservancy – Manages and operates Shelby Farms Park and Shelby Farms Greenline through a private-public partnership with Shelby County Government. The SFPC is responsible for daily management, fundraising to meet operation budget needs, setting the vision for the Park’s future, and stewarding its natural resources.
