NEW YORK --(Business Wire)--
Neuberger Berman Group LLC, one of the world's leading employee-owned
money managers, marks the third anniversary of its return to its roots
as an independent company by kicking off its annual "Celebration with
Service" program. The week-long community service initiative runs April
27 to May 4 with more than 850 Neuberger Berman employees participating
in nearly 50 projects around the world in cities including New York,
Chicago, Dallas, London, Hong Kong and Tokyo.
As in years past, projects include painting schools, preparing meals for
the homeless, beautifying public parks, celebrating spring with senior
citizens, reading with young children, providing career guidance to high
school students, and more.
George Walker, CEO and Chairman of Neuberger Berman said, "I'm proud to
say that this year marks our largest-ever employee volunteer enrollment.
Noteworthy community organizations are now approaching us to get
involved with our annual 'Celebration with Service'. We value this
recognition of Neuberger's high quality philanthropic programs and for
the talent and dedication of our volunteers."
Celebration with Service events complement the mission of the Neuberger
Berman Foundation, which is committed to helping at-risk children and
youth achieve their potential through educational enrichment and support
programs that promote academic success, independence and economic
sustainability. Neuberger Berman partners with organizations that

educational enrichment opportunities.
Help older youth on their path to economic independence through
programs such as job readiness, college preparedness and financial
elebration with Service both supports the Foundation's mission and
provides additional community service opportunities, extending the
effectiveness of grant-making by leveraging the time and talent of
