Paying It Forward

Giving Back

Several years ago, Brad Yochum, founder and CEO of Sovereign Group, volunteered with the Make-A-Wish Foundation as they gave critically-ill children the gift of a once-in-a-lifetime memory. Brad still remembers the happiness that radiated from the children’s faces when they received their wish.

While Brad was volunteering with Make-A-Wish, he met Keane Veran, a young boy dealing with leukemia. In 2011, Keane received his special wish–a trip with his family to the White House to visit President Obama. In 2017, he was officially declared cancer-free. Click here to read more of Keane’s story.

Now, Brad’s helping in a different way. Through the “Giving Back” program, Sovereign Group contributes an annual amount to the Make-A-Wish Foundation in order to fulfil children’s wishes.

Brad and the Sovereign Group family want to delight and encourage children–like Keane–whose days are filled with pain and illness and clouded by uncertainty. Supporting the Make-A-Wish Foundation provides the perfect platform to achieve those goals.
