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.

On Saturday, September 17 our Las Vegas outreach team enjoyed spending the morning with nearly a thousand superheroes at the Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada’s annual Superhero 5K run and 1-mile walk. We were delighted to spend the morning meeting so many runners, walkers, and support members who came out dressed in creative and colorful superhero outfits.
“Candlelighters is such an incredible organization and we at Lerner and Rowe are honored to support their great fight against childhood cancer.” -Glen Lerner
12 Year Sponsors of Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada
2022 marks the twelfth year we have actively supported the Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada. During that time the Superhero 5K has become a favorite fundraiser for our team. This is especially true since ALL funds raised from the Candlelighters Superhero 5K is given back to directly benefit the children and families assisted by Candlelighters.
Lerner and Rowe Gives Back has donated $3,500 as a sponsor of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation’s (NFFF) 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb at Talking Stick Fields in Scottsdale, Arizona. This annual event is a repeated favorite of our teams as it honors the memory of the heroic men and women who selflessly gave their lives during the tragic aftermath of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center in 2001.
Additionally, the Salt Water 9/11 Stair Climb specifically raises funds to support programs provided by the NFFF to assist families of local fallen firefighters and the FDNY Counseling Services Unit.
2022 9/11 Commemorative Stair Climb in Scottsdale
For the sixth year, participants will gather to climb the equivalent of 110 stories in representation of the 110 stories inside the World Trade Center. Each climber will have the honor of carrying a photo of one of our fallen heroes.
For 2022, we’ll have a booth set up at the event and two team members will join others in carrying a photo in remembrance of a fallen hero.

Date: Saturday, September 10 Time: 5:00 p.m. — 9:00 p.m. Location: Salt River Fields at Talking Stick in Scottsdale, AZ (7555 North Pima Road)
As a repeat sponsor of John Holmberg’s 8th Annual Heat Stroke Open Charity Golf Tournament, we were thrilled to learn that our $5,000 donation contributed 25% of the over $20,000 that was raised to benefit the Arizona Humane Society.

Lerner & Rowe gives back by sponsoring Mission One Foundation’s 4th Annual Veteran’s of Valor event this past Saturday at Bulldog Park, in Crown Point, Indiana. Mission One Foundation works to provide support services to our veterans and first responders.
At the event, a car was donated to a veteran in need and donations were made to two families of fallen first responders.
Our Lerner and Rowe Gives Back team members in Illinois and Indiana helped make sure that 1,150 kids went home with free backpacks loaded with school supplies during two separate 2022 back to school giveaways held in Chicago and Merrillville this month.
We are grateful for our community partners who helped make these free events such a success! We are equally thrilled to have had the chance to meet and interact with our neighbors in a fun and relaxed setting.
Why Our 2022 Back to School Giveaways Were Amazing
Special thanks goes out to Merrillville Pop Warner for hosting the Merrillville back to school event and asking us to join the Merrillville Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 168, Merrillville Fire Department, Lake County Police Department, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and Merrillville Town Councilman Jeff Minchuk in sponsorship of this fun and beneficial family activity.
We also want to thank local law enforcement and vendors for helping make our Chicago back to school event a carefree afternoon for students and their families to enjoy as they prepare for a new school year.
