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.
