Since its founding in 1907, Fox Rothschild has been extensively involved in the communities in which our attorneys and staff work and live. We give our time and resources to a vast number of organizations whose missions are to better lives, enhance communities and enrich the overall quality of life locally, regionally, nationally and internationally for all.
American Red Cross
When disaster strikes, the American Red Cross is there. We are proud to support the nation's premier emergency response organization, and our attorneys and staff take to heart the mission of the Red Cross. We hold frequent blood drives in many of our offices and also provide financial and other resources to assist in disaster relief and recover efforts.
Alex's Lemonade Stand
The goal of Alexandra "Alex" Scott to fight cancer, one cup at time, lives on, and we are honored to partake in that mission. Our offices hold bake sales and sponsor stands annually to raise donations to support pediatric cancer research and help establish family-centered support groups through Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation.
Big Brothers/Big Sisters
Fox Rothschild and Big Brothers/Big Sisters join forces to put their more than 100 years of service as community leaders to use for the benefit of children and youth. Many members of the Fox Rothschild family serve as mentors to children and the firm also provides financial assistance to the organization. We also assist in sporting events sponsored by Big Brothers/Big Sisters and help organize other activities designed to guide children and youth as they strive to realize their potential. As an example of our continuing support, we participate in the “Beyond School Walls Program,” where children visit our offices on a bi-weekly basis for a one-hour lunch meeting where Fox volunteers advise them in connection with their future goals.
Habitat for Humanity
What could be more central to building strong families and strong communities than helping families build and own their own homes within those communities? In addition to financial support, Fox attorneys and staff have put hammer to nail to bring projects to fruition in Philadelphia and the surrounding region.
American Heart Association
Healthy hearts are happy hearts, and helping hearts stay healthy and happy is among the core values the firm sought to implement with the creation of its wellness program, Fox Fit and Well. To help fulfill our healthy-living mindset, Fox Rothschild proudly sponsors the American Heart Association. Our attorneys and staff pound the pavement, participating in walks and national days recognizing the fight against heart disease. Our efforts are aligned with the Association's mission to help raise awareness of the importance of wellness and exercise in order to combat cardiac disease and stroke.
A strong community builds a strong foundation for its residents and their lives. To achieve stronger communities, our attorneys and staff participate in their local United Way chapters by raising funds for various community projects and supporting the annual giving campaign, all designed to achieve the common goal of community unity.
Bolstering the firm's Green Initiative to reduce our impact on the environment and promote environmental stewardship, Fox attorneys team up with numerous local charities and elementary schools for a variety of Earth Day activities. We have, for example, organized collection drives for new and used items and donate – i.e., recycle – those items to local charities.
Fox Rothschild attorneys and staff also contribute assistance on a routine basis by collecting food and articles of clothing (such as warm winter items) as well as volunteering with organizations that provide aid or assistance to the homeless; autistic and special needs children; first responders, emergency personnel and their families; senior centers and the elderly; and victims of crime.
Other organizations that we lend our support and resources to in various capacities include:
- Ronald McDonald House
- Diabetes Foundation
- Special Olympics
- Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure
- Toys for Tots
- Eagles Fly for Leukemia
- Wills for Heroes
- Womens Way
