Lerner & Rowe Gives Back is a charitable organization founded
by Kevin Rowe, managing partner of Lerner & Rowe, P.C.
Lerner & Rowe Gives Back is a nonprofit organization dedicated to extensive and various community outreach programs. The idea was inspired
by the 2000 movie “Pay it Forward”, where an intriguing assignment is given to a young boy from his social studies teacher. The assignment
was to create something to change the world, and put it into action, through direct action, in hopes of bringing a revolution in
an ever-widening circle of people completely unknown to one another.
We believe in paying forward the success our firm has achieved through our newly established foundation and team of employees. We work to advance
the missions of community organizations that serve children and families struggling from the aftermath of the recent economic downturn.
Any organization operating independently can only do so much. But collectively, through a network approach, we help one charitable organization
and in turn they “pay it forward” by helping families or another charitable organization. We hope our program will lead to social and community
changes on a much larger scale that will have a greater impact to those in need.
We believe it is our responsibility to advocate for and improve the lives of children who live in poverty, cope with the effects of illness
or disease, or otherwise need assistance. There is no reason that any child should go without. In addition to children in need, we serve
other various organizations in the hopes that our compassion touches the lives of the homeless, the hungry, the abused and sick, and even
to our four-legged friends.
We hope that our efforts will inspire our colleagues in the community to do the same. The greater need exists. The bigger difference is made
when we seek to directly better the lives of struggling individuals and families.
Join Lerner and Rowe Gives Back today, and see the difference you can make.

Each child had the opportunity to decorate a cardboard roll, color a letter of the alphabet, and a picture that corresponded. At the end of our Casa Central volunteer project, we lined up each letter in order and practiced our alphabet on some fun worksheets.
What a great group of bright and energetic children to work with! Thanks to Casa Central for all that you do to help inspire and develop the lives of these wonderful children!

Our team was at #LovePup’s It’s Hip to Chip Holiday Event in Phoenix on Saturday, December 7 handing out pet bandannas and freebies. At the event #LovePup joined with AZPetVet to once again offer FREE microchips to personally-owned pets for the holidays!
Pet owners who were behind on licensing or renewing their dog’s pet licence were also given the opportunity to get licensed and up-to-date without penalties.
What Is the Hip to Chip Program?
#LovePup’s It’s Hip to Chip program is an ongoing Maricopa County program that provides a FREE microchip to every dog that gets adopted from the county shelters. Microchips serve as important permanent identification that gets implanted in your dog so they can be scanned and later reunited with you if they ever get lost.
Our team is thrilled to be a major sponsor of the #LovePup Foundation and their continuous efforts to look after the welfare of animals.
