Our firm is deeply committed to engaging philanthropically, in a meaningful way and to a substantial degree, with the communities in which we live and work.


The firm has an active Philanthropy Committee who seek, evaluate and approve requests for financial donations. Each year since the firm was started, we have dedicated approximately 1% of our annual revenue to these direct financial donations.

The Philanthropy Committee prefers to provide funding where:

  • ‍the funding supports disadvantaged people and/or people with special medical needs in the geographic areas of our offices
  • the amount of the firm’s donation will be of meaningful size to the recipient (so as to be impactful to the achievement of the recipient’s mission); and
  • ‍where substantially all of the firm’s donation will be used in programming (so that the firm’s donation is used efficiently).

The firm has made substantial, multi-year donations to the following organizations:
