Keiter marks 40 years of serving and supporting Virginia with a community-focused campaign.
To mark the occasion, we established a campaign to support non-profit organizations in Central Virginia beginning in February 2019. The campaign, A Bright Future of Serving the Community, features the Firm’s involvement with 40 organizations with the purpose of bringing awareness to those organizations. The campaign will conclude with a special contribution campaign in the fall, after each of the 40 organizations have been highlighted in a 40 week-long social media campaign.
The Keiter team has been busy serving our clients and our community this Winter. Our Bright Future of Serving the Community campaign is in full swing and we’ve enjoyed supporting and featuring the following organizations:
