The KoonsFuller Family Law Foundation announced the grant winners of its charitable campaign at two 40th anniversary celebration events held in Dallas on November 2 and in Houston on November 4. KoonsFuller celebrated the firm’s 40th anniversary with a charitable campaign to award $200,000 in grants to Texas non-profit charities. The Foundation received dozens of submissions, which were then evaluated by a panel of notable judges from North Texas and Houston. Ten non-profits were ultimately selected to receive grants ranging from $5,000 to $50,000.
