Team BCI Charitable Relief Fund:  Raising and providing financial aid for employees, clients, and partners to bring hope to those in times of unforeseen hardship.

About The Team BCI Charitable Relief Fund

Life can sometimes bring unpredictable things that are out of our control and that may leave us feeling hopeless, helpless, and with seemingly nowhere to turn. It’s in times like these that Benefit Concepts wants to be able to step up and provide financial support for our team members, Strategic Partners, and customers. In an effort to provide financial support, BCI has set up Team BCI Charitable Relief Fund to raise money to be used in times of need for years to come.

In the wake of the devastation brought on by Hurricane Harvey, Owner & CEO Mark Kennedy carefully assembled a board, of which he heads, to be over this Relief Fund. In addition to Mark, the Board consists of his wife Cammie Kennedy, Kerstin Kornblum, Glenn Cassity, Jimmy Hubbard, Josh Pipes, and Becky Chesnut.

Our initial goal is to raise $25,000 which Mark and his wife, Cammie Kennedy, have generously offered to match dollar for dollar up for a total of $50,000.
