BKD Raises $150k for Tornado Victims

June 9, 2011


Super-regional CPA and business advisory firm BKD recently teamed with the firm's charitable unit, the BKD Foundation, and donated some $150,000 to the victims of the recent tornadoes in Joplin, Mo.

Through a firmwide call for contributions, partners and employees have donated more than $53,000, which will go directly to help friends and family of BKD employees in the Joplin area. The BKD Foundation gave an additional $100,000 to the United Way Foundation, which will go toward assisting in the cleanup and recovery efforts.

"The generosity of individual BKD partners and employees to help BKD employees and their extended families who lost their homes, cars and other possessions during the tornado of a few short weeks ago is truly amazing," said John Wanamaker managing partner of BKD's offices in Southern Missouri.

There are many sources of uncertainty in the statistics mentioned on this page. Before the 20th century, and even until recently in third-world countries such as Bangladesh, records-keeping was spotty at best. Before the American Civil War, slave deaths were often not included in tornado death tolls. Many tornadoes from 100 or more years ago had no official government report on damage or casualties, so statistics must be compiled from local newspapers, which are not always a reliable or consistent source. Many death tolls were published with people still missing, or with people critically injured and likely to die later. In Bangladesh and India, exact populations of towns were often not known, so most death figures are approximate. Individual tornado descriptions go into more detail on these uncertainties.
