In the December 2017 issue of Georgia Trend, Ken Thrasher, one of Bennett Thrasher’s co-founders, discusses the creation of the BT Foundation and the impact it has made on the Atlanta community, as well as the firm internally. The foundation was created in 2003 as a way for employees to support the charities and causes they cared about.
