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.
Our Lerner and Rowe team serves eight different states, 365 days a year- not just by giving back to families over Thanksgiving. In fact, our mission revolves around us providing a bit of hope and a helping hand to those who need it most, when they need it.
As we begin to wrap up 2021, we wish everyone a happy, healthy, and safe 2021 Holiday Season!

“Lerner and Rowe Gives Back exists to ‘give back’ in the communities where our clients reside, in order to improve the quality of life in that community. This is best served when law enforcement agencies are proactive in community area policing.

Our Las Vegas Lerner and Rowe team had an active day out in the community supporting both of the Clark County School District (CCSD) and Las Vegas Metropolitan (LVM) Police Departments as they filled several buses with Christmas presents. This event, plus last week’s Fill the Bus in North Las Vegas, produced enough toys to provide presents to every child in nearly a dozen schools. It was such a blessing to work beside the men and women of CCSDPD, LVMPD, Nellis Air Force Base Police, and the Nevada Department of Corrections.
“At the heart of Lerner and Rowe Gives Back mission is the desire to give back and help others in need year-round. As such, the Christmas season provides numerous opportunities to give back and spread some light and cheer,” shared Glen Lerner. “For me, it is especially heartwarming to see so many of our local agencies stepping up and sharing resources to positively impact at-risk community members.”
