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.

Each month, our Illinois and Indiana staff members take part in a group volunteer project to help serve various charities. This week, our Chicago and Merrillville teams kicked off with their first volunteer project of the year.
Staff from both offices took part in volunteering for Phil’s Friends, an organization that makes and sends care packages to those battling cancer.
Tasks included making and coloring Cards of Hope, decorating boxes, and tying comfort blankets.
February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness (TDVA) Month. As such, our team spent some time last week at several schools with the Chicago Police Departments CAPS program to participate in Teen Dating Violence Awareness presentations.
Our Lerner and Rowe team attended the monthly Giving Project on February 12, 2022. During the community outreach event, we helped barbecue hot dogs for 250 hungry guests.
The Giving Project occurs every second Saturday and was launched by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to ensure that our local homeless population receives regular access to social services, as well as personal care items such as glasses, clothing, blankets, and more.
Giving Back Since 2019
One of the first Giving Projects our team had the pleasure to take part in was back in March 2019. Since then, we look forward to attending these events that allow us to bring smiles and hope to those who may need a helping hand
Lerner & Rowe Gives Back Donates $5K to Help Search for Missing Youth
Our Las Vegas outreach team joins F.R.E.E. International, KlassKIDS, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, and other organizations and volunteers for Nevada Child Seekers’ annual The BIG Search in Las Vegas. As with previous years, The BIG Search 2022 in Las Vegas occurs over SuperBowl weekend.
We are honored for the opportunity to participate in The BIG Search and offer a $5,000 gift that will be used to cover the costs of the three-day search and rescue event.
What Is The BIG Search?
The BIG Search is just that–a major search effort spread across the Las Vegas Valley as a means to help locate Nevada Child Seekers’ “Top 30” missing local youth. During the search, volunteers hit the streets in a grassroots effort to distribute booklets and baseball cards to locals and tourists that feature photos and other identifiable details of the missing youth.
These distribution efforts have proven to be optimal in helping to locate and assist missing and exploited youth in the Las Vegas area–not only those on the “Top 30” list. The information also helps to increase awareness of the local programs and organizations available to assist youth that may be in danger of exploitation and sex trafficking.
Statistics of Missing Youth in Southern Nevada
According to statistics provided by Nevada’s Missing Children Clearinghouse, over 8,000 children are reported missing each year in Nevada. Approximately 200 are considered endangered or abducted.
How You Can Help
Contact Nevada Child Seekers directly to learn more about how the agency assists families and law enforcement locate missing children in Las Vegas and across the country. Call 702-458-7009, email [email protected], or visit NevadaChildSeekers.org.
Our Las Vegas team is pleased to give back in support of Raise the Future’s 2022 Project Valentine with a $2,500 gift. Our donation will be used to help send out 350+ handwritten valentines to youth in foster care.
Each valentine will also include a $5.00 gift card to a local food establishment.
The Story Behind Project Valentine
Project Valentine started in 2021 as a means to help combat an increase of pain and isolation felt by youth in foster care during COVID-19 lockdowns. This project shows one of Nevada’s most vulnerable populations that someone does care and is thinking of them this Valentine’s Day by sending them a message of love and hope.
Join us in showing these youth that they are valued and not forgotten by donating your own valentine(s) now online, or by texting ProjValentine to 41444. (Message and data rates may apply). Each $7 donation covers printing and mailing of the gift and Valentine’s cards.
Our Las Vegas Lerner and Rowe Gives Back team kicked off the NHL All-Star Weekend with three community partners: Heroes United Hockey, Vegas Golden Knights, and the NHL Players Association.
We began the weekend by transporting over 30 inner city youth to the City National Arena. Once the kids arrived at the arena that were excited to spend some ice time learning hockey tips from members of the Vegas Golden Knights and NHL Players Association. Afterwards the kids were treated to a pizza party.
“Heroes United Hockey, the Vegas Golden Knights, and the NHL Players Association set such a wonderful example of “giving back” by making a positive difference in the lives of children. It is indeed a privilege to partner with these incredible community heroes.”
Lerner and Rowe Gives Back announced that it has reached the $100,000 Lifetime Giving amount to Phoenix Children’s Hospital. For over a decade, our Phoenix-based nonprofit has been a committed charitable partner to Phoenix Children’s.
We proudly stand behind Phoenix Children’s mission to provide 60+ vital programs and services to the community to help ensure that all children have access to world-class health care.
Giving Back to Phoenix Children’s Since 2010
Our history with Phoenix Children’s began in 2010 with a $1,000 gift for their Leadership Circle. Just 12 years later Lerner and Rowe Gives Back reached the $100,000 Lifetime Giving amount with a $10,000 sponsorship of Phoenix Children’s 2022 Beach Ball.
Our team looks forward to decades more of giving back to Phoenix Children’s, especially knowing that the hospital’s programs and services are funded solely or significantly through philanthropy.
Please join us in giving back to help Phoenix Children’s “provide hope, healing, and the best health care to children and families for generations to come.”
