The mission of the Stokes Lawrence Charitable Foundation is to support Northwest public charities that promote social justice and provide essential services such as food, housing, clothing, education and health care to individuals in need. The Foundation, which is primarily funded by donations from shareholders and employees of Stokes Lawrence, matches qualified gifts made by our employees to public charities. Donations to the Foundation from the general public are also accepted. In 2012, the first year of the Foundation, the primary recipients of donations from the Foundation were the Campaign for Equal Justice, the Washington State Bar Foundation, the Future of the Law Institute and Northwest Harvest.
We give generously of our talent and financial resources to local organizations that promote social justice and help less fortunate individuals and families. Stokes Lawrence was recently recognized by the Puget Sound Business Journal as one of the state's most generous charitable donors. Our contributions help increase access to legal services as well as provide the basic necessities of life: food, housing, clothing, education and health care. We are enthusiastic participants in the legal community's annual "Food Frenzy," which benefits local food banks, raising several thousands of dollars each year.
We match employee contributions to qualified charitable organizations. This program has benefited nearly 100 charities. Individually, many of our employees participate through payroll deductions in the United Way and the Women's Funding Alliance.
Recent recipients of Stokes Lawrence giving include:
