Price Kong’s founder, Ron Price, was passionate about giving back to the community in which he served, and that commitment remains today through firm and individual volunteerism and contributions.
PK Charities (PKC) is a nonprofit organization that focuses its efforts on providing resources to enrich the educational and life experiences of underserved children and adults, outside the scope of local, state, and federal funding. PKC, supported by Price Kong, hosts an annual golf tournament and silent auction, with all proceeds distributed to numerous local Arizona charities, including the Osborn Educational Foundation, Paz De Cristo, North Phoenix Lions Club, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and Family Promise of Greater Phoenix. In 2021, the PK Charities Golf Tournament raised nearly $40,000 for local nonprofits. Click HERE to view photos from the event.
The PK Charities 17th Annual Golf Tournament will be held May 6, 2022 at the Arizona Biltmore Golf Course.
The firm’s founder, Ron Price, was a highly regarded, long-time faculty member in the business department at Phoenix College. He established the Ronald D. Price Memorial Scholarship to help underprivileged students attending Phoenix College. The firm continues to fund the scholarship program, offering six to ten scholarships each year, depending on need. In recognition of the firm’s ongoing support, the firm was an honored recipient of Phoenix College’s Exemplary Partnership Award.
Senior partner, Tony Kong, has been a long-time supporter of the Chinese Chamber of Commerce. Each year, Price Kong donates $1000 scholarship to the Chinese Chamber for high school students that need financial assistance to attend college.
Osborn School District
Price Kong is a large supporter of Osborn School District, which consists of Title I schools in central Phoenix. In addition to donating a portion of funds raised at the PK Charities Golf Tournament, Price Kong has adopted Longview Elementary School in the Osborn School District. Much of Longview’s student population comes from low income families, many of which are homeless and near-homeless. At the beginning of the school year, the firm hosts an annual school supply drive to provide the tools students need to start the year off right. In November, the firm sponsors an art contest, awarding 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners, and providing $500 for the schools art teacher to use on supplies for her classroom. Price Kong then uses the winning art for their annual client Christmas cards. In December, the firm holds a gift drive for one of Longview’s classrooms.
Each November, Price Kong holds a Shred-A-Thon for the community. The firm offers free document shredding for individuals and businesses in exchange for nonperishable food, frozen turkeys, and monetary donations. The donations are delivered to Paz De Cristo to feed the hungry.
St. Vincent de Paul Adopt-A-Family
Price Kong participated in the St. Vincent de Paul Adopt-A-Family Christmas Program, matching staff donations dollar-for-dollar. The funds were used to purchase gifts and a grocery gift card for two families in need – a single mom with five children and a family of four.
Arizona Construction Career Day
In November 2019, Price Kong volunteered at the 20th Annual Arizona Construction Career Day presented by the Association for Construction Career Development (ACCD).
