C.J. Lawrence Recognizes Leadership Team for Significant Charitable Contributions

Managing partners Bernhard Koepp, Terry Gardner are acknowledged for their dedicated advocacy of The Opera Foundation, Marine Toys for Tots Foundation and Becker/Gambles Music Fund, respectively.

November 22, 2018 (NEW YORK, N.Y.) – C.J. Lawrence, an investment management boutique based in New York City, today recognizes three of its managing partners for their significant contributions and ongoing dedication to charitable organizations; The Opera Foundation, the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation and the South Country Education Foundation’s Becker/Gambles Music Fund. Each of these organizations plays an important role in providing life-changing opportunities and resources for young people nationwide.

C.J. Lawrence CEO Bernhard Koepp joined The Opera Foundation’s Board of Trustees in 1993 and has acted as president for the past 13 years. The Foundation was originally launched in 1986 with a steadfast mission to support American opera singers abroad via scholarships and study grants, fostering cross-cultural ties between young talent across the world. For many years, C.J. Lawrence has been a dedicated corporate sponsor of The Opera Foundation’s Annual Gala, which recently celebrated its 33rd year at the University Club in New York City.

Terry Gardner, senior managing director and investment advisor, is recognized for his leadership as director of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. Founded in 1947 by the U.S. Marine Corps, the organization’s mission is to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas via its annual toy collection and distribution campaign. Gardner’s passion for this cause was inspired after proudly serving as an Officer in the United States Marine Corps.

Ongoing support of the Becker/Gambles Music Fund is led by C.J. Lawrence. A localized organization based in Suffolk County, New York, the Fund administers a scholarship program, produces an annual concert series and provides master classes to students. It also promotes donations of musical instruments to the Bellport, New York school district.

“Each member of our team is a philanthropist and advocate of causes that are near to our hearts,” said Koepp. “It has been an honor to serve our community for all these years, but it could not be possible without the support and selflessness of the entire team here at C.J. Lawrence.”
