Bennett Thrasher has been focused on giving back to the community since its creation in 1980. One of the firm’s values is “family” and this concept includes not only our associates, but the metro Atlanta community. In 2003, we recognized the need to formalize our giving efforts by creating the Bennett Thrasher Foundation, enabling all of our associates to devote their time and resources to various volunteer opportunities throughout Georgia. Funded by the firm’s top-line revenue, the BT Foundation is completely associate-run, with a board of partner advisors. The Foundation has given more than $2M in grants to 501 (c)(3) non-profits that our associates are passionate about and provides our associates with countless volunteer opportunities throughout the year. The BT Foundation has also supported “BT on the AT,” a firm-wide initiative where associates and staff members participate in various hikes on the Appalachian Trail to raise awareness around mental health wellness in the workplace and to give back to the community.
