Barran Liebman was honored to be a recipient of a 2016 Innovation in Corporate Philanthropy Award at the Portland Business Journal’s Corporate Philanthropy Awards luncheon and to be ranked #3 overall on the Small Corporate Philanthropists list on Friday, October 14th at the Hilton in Downtown Portland. The firm was celebrated for charitable contributions made throughout the year, and for the unique partnership with Camp UKANDU. Camp UKANDU’s mission is to provide cancer patients and their siblings, from the age of 8 to 18, a one week summer camp where every kid can enjoy “just being a normal kid” while creating lasting memories for a lifetime. Camp UKANDU remains very close to Barran Liebman’s heart as Ed and Emily Harnden, have been involved with the organization since the beginning.
Earlier in the week, the Barran Liebman team attended the Camp UKANDU Breakfast Around the Campfire on Wednesday, October 12th at the Oregon Zoo where we had the opportunity to join hundreds of other supporters in learning more about the Camp, met the volunteers, and heard stories from the campers and families themselves about how Camp has affected their lives. At Barran Liebman, the team strongly believes in the importance of giving back to the community and it has truly been a blessing to have the opportunity to partner with Camp UKANDU, where they are directly changing the lives of many through their charitable objectives.
