Values & Community

Our Commitment to Philanthropy

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

We dedicate approximately 1% of our annual revenue to direct financial donations each year.

Directed financial donations & sponsorships

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 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).
