Community Involvement

Spencer Fane is focused on connecting and benefiting the local communities in which it is immersed. Many of our attorneys are active participants of community boards and organizations, volunteer programs, and local philanthropic endeavors. The firm itself also provides support to carefully selected non-profit organizations and causes through a formal charitable giving program. Launched in 2015, the program is led each year by a select group of attorneys and staff who award grants worth as much as $50,000 to non-profit organizations in various Spencer Fane markets. A number of criteria are considered in the selection process, including most prominently the opportunity for our attorneys and staff to be involved as volunteers. Past recipients have included Epworth Children and Family Services (St. Louis), Craig Hospital (Denver), and the Crossroads Preparatory Academy (Kansas City). The selection process for recipients begins in the fall of each year.
