PLAINSBORO, NJ--(Marketwired - Dec 18, 2013) - JK Group, the leading end-to-end solutions provider of software and value-added services for corporate philanthropy, today shared details of its upcoming JK Client Forum on Philanthropy and Volunteerism. The annual event will be held from Monday, May 19 through Wednesday, May 21, 2014 at the Sanibel Harbour Marriott in Fort Myers, Florida.

Hundreds of top-performing global corporations rely on JK Group's leading software platform and broad range of service offerings to help them manage and measure their philanthropic efforts. The company processes payments totaling more than $1 billion in charitable contributions each year, benefiting over 100,000 charitable organizations. As a full service provider, JK's compliance and vetting team helps ensure that client programs are in compliance with Internal Revenue Service (IRS) regulations and global anti-money laundering and similar legislation, including the USA PATRIOT Act. 

The forum's extensive agenda of informational sessions, led by client presenters, industry leaders and JK Group's team of experts, will include presentations on subjects such as increasing participation in employee giving campaigns, tools to improve employee engagement, effectively administering matching gift programs, and how to implement an international philanthropic program, to name just a few. During the forum, JK Group will showcase Consiva, the company's new market-leading platform that is disrupting the corporate philanthropy space and has set a new standard for employee giving. Attendees will also have the opportunity to share ideas, strategies and best practices across a wide range of topics critical to the success of their corporate engagement programs as well as meet with JK Group staff to discuss their business needs.

The forum will also feature relevant keynotes from two highly accomplished authors and industry speakers. On Tuesday, May 20th, Tim Moore, a leading expert on the impact of generational characteristics and differences on the workplace and the marketplace, will explain how organizations can maintain an effective multi-generational work environment and explore the differences and opportunities in philanthropic giving behaviors across generations.

In addition, Eric Greitens, a former Navy SEAL and founder of The Mission Continues, a national nonprofit organization that challenges veterans to serve and inspire in communities across the U.S., will deliver the keynote on Wednesday, May 21st. During this session, Greitens will draw on his experience as a humanitarian and Navy SEAL to give an inspirational presentation on leadership and defeating challenges. Widely recognized as one of the most innovative leaders in the country, Greitens was presented with the President's Volunteer Service Award in 2008 by President George W. Bush and was recently named as one of TIME magazine's 100 Most Influential People in the World.

Farina, CEO of JK Group.
