The opportunity to give back is one of the great joys of our profession. Our lawyers and staff are proud to support a broad spectrum of causes, from endowing a professorship in agricultural science to fielding a team at the Alzheimer’s Association’s annual Memory Walk.®
The Firm supports groups of coworkers that meet to sew colorful pillows for children who are cancer patients. 2,600 pillows with cheerful patterns have been donated to Rady Children's Hospital and Ronald McDonald House. Coworkers tutor low-income students through the Kids at Heart program. We donate significant amounts to numerous organizations, from Girls Think Tank to the La Raza scholarship fund for Latino law students. Every spring, we fill the office with daffodils as part of a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. We’re also contributors to Boggy Creek, a member of the Association of Hole in the Wall Camps that provides opportunities to kids with serious illnesses.
The Firm has been recognized by the American Cancer Society with it's corporate Circle of Hope Award. For over 10 years, we have supported and participated in the American Cancer Society's three major fundraisers: Daffodil Days, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk and the Relay for Life.
Yet sometimes it’s necessary to go further – to stretch our commitment beyond its previous comfort level. A case in point: When thousands were left homeless in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, Robbins Geller lawyers reached out with donations of time, effort and more than $1 million in immediately accessible funds. Our Reach Out America Foundation became a model for other corporate contributors as our lawyers worked shoulder to shoulder with residents to rebuild houses and schools.
