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.

One of our favorite Lerner and Rowe Gives Back community activities is working with community partners who serve disadvantaged children. Heroes United Hockey is one example of a such a program that has proven to have a positive impact in the lives of local youth.
What Is the Heroes United Hockey Program?
Heroes United Hockey is a Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) charitable program where LVMPD officers volunteer to teach and play hockey with local children.
Positive Impact of Heroes United Hockey
This program has contributed to dramatic decreases in violent crime and increased high school graduation rates in the Liberty Baptist Church neighborhood (near Lake Mead Blvd. and Torrey Pines Dr.) where the program first started. This success rate spurred them to include weekly activities at Balm of Gilead Global Ministries on Twain Ave. and Swenson St.
The ultimate mission of Heroes United Hockey is to strengthen our community, help lower crime, and provide a healthy atmosphere for competition and personal growth by successfully creating friendships between officers and youth from low income families through ICARE (Integrity, Courage, Accountability, Respect for others, and Excellence) Values.
Our Lerner and Rowe Gives Back outreach team in Las Vegas enjoyed barbecuing hot dogs at the Health & Wellness event hosted by New Creation Outreach Ministries. It was a beautiful day in the neighborhood!

JUNE 21, 2022 UPDATE: Lerner and Rowe gave another $5,000 for a total donation amount of $10,000!
Listen now to Kevin Rowe’s call to Mark and NeanderPaul letting them know about our initial $5,000 donation that included a teaser about given back even more later.
For the fifth year, Lerner and Rowe will support KSLX radio personalities Mark and NeanderPaul’s annual fundraiser—Operation Pets and Vets—by pledging $5,000 to Soldier’s Best Friend. Soldier’s Best Friend is a 501-c3 non-profit organization that helps pair one trained dog to a deserving veteran.
Our team is excited to be one of five local donation partners to join Mark and NeanderPaul in 2022 and help them exceed last year’s results from June 6th through June 24th.
2021 Helped More Local Veterans Than Before
In 2021, the goal was to raise $20,000 to help cover the costs associated with pairing four local Vets affected by a traumatic brain injury (TBI) or post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) to four service or therapeutic companion dogs, at no cost to them.
At the end of the program, KSLX, station listeners, and fellow local business partners helped raise over $70,000—which gave 15 dogs a new home and 15 veterans a new companion!
Why We Give Back to Soldier’s Best Friend
What we really love about Soldier’s Best Friend is that most of the dogs chosen for training are rescues from a local animal shelter. This means that two lives are given a helping hand and a newfound sense of hope for a brighter future.
You can join us in supporting local Vets and sheltered dogs by making an online donation now at SoldiersBestFriend.org.
