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.

For the past five years we have partnered with the National Ovarian Cancer Coalitions – Valley of the Sun Chapter in sponsorship of their annual 5K Run/Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer.
Join us at the 5K as we walk in support of Valley of the Sun Chapter’s efforts to spread hope, awareness and an increased quality of life to all who have been touched by ovarian cancer.
5K Run/Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer
The Coalition is on mission to increase awareness about the early warning signs, symptoms and risk factors of ovarian cancer. Found early enough, women have a 90% survival rate after being diagnosed with this disease.
Funds raised during the 8th Annual 5K Run/Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer will benefit ovarian cancer patients, survivors and their care takers around the Phoenix area.

Lerner and Rowe Gives Back ALWAYS comes through for Phoenix Rescue Mission. Each year you raise the bar higher and allow PRM to help more and more people in need. Last Saturday, Lerner and Rowe Gives Back sent 12 or more dedicated employees to not only pick up 450 turkeys at Bashas but also unpack them again at our Community Service Center. That was quite a chore.
Our final turkey count for last Saturday was 832 which means that L & R Gives Back provided OVER 50% of the turkeys collected on Frozen Turkey Saturday. Because of Lerner and Rowe Gives Back’s generosity, 450 families will experience the blessing of a delicious homemade Thanksgiving meal to be shared with friends and family. This upcoming Saturday 11/19 over 100 volunteers will hand-deliver each turkey that we collected along with a food box containing all the Thanksgiving fixings to families across the Valley. These volunteers will interact with the families, making sure they are doing OK, giving them HOPE and even will pray with them if they so choose.
On behalf of our Board of Directors, Jay Cory our CEO, PRM’s enthusiastic staff, our dedicated donors and especially the clients we serve, thank you for your faithful support which allows PRM to complete its Mission Statement to “Provide Christ-centered life transforming solutions to persons facing hunger and homelessness”.
May God bless you and all your employees for your generosity and compassionate heart for The Least, The Last and The Lost.
