BPG’s own Jeffrey Owens, a long-time member of the Million Dollar Round Table and current Top of the Table member, has worked closely with the Children’s Cancer Association for over 20 years. He has participated in many fundraising efforts to promote special projects that provide thoughtful, loving care for children with cancer and their families. Annually, part of Jeffrey’s efforts to support the Children’s Cancer Association is to apply for a grant with the Million Dollar Round Table Foundation (MDRT).
MDRT is an international, independent association of financial professionals who strive to serve their clients with exemplary performance standards, and ethics. Each year, MDRT members have the opportunity to apply for a grant on behalf of the charity of their choice. The application involves a lengthy grant-writing process and interviews with the board of the MDRT Foundation, with the hopes of gaining support ranging from $1,000 to $50,000. MDRT has awarded Jeff and CCA in previous years, but this year they received the top grant of $50,000!
Although CCA’s impact is national, the organization has been near to BPG’s heart since Jeff’s daughter Melissa was diagnosed with cancer as a teenager. During this difficult time for his family, Jeff grew a deep appreciation for the uplifting programs and services provided by CCA. BPG Wealth Management is grateful for the opportunity to support and spread awareness for such a wonderful organization, thanks to the recognition of our advisors by MDRT. Jeff and BPG Wealth Management are proud to sponsor CCA!
