Gross McGinley Law Firm Donates $13,000 to Greater Lehigh Valley Nonprofits
Gross McGinley is pleased to share the results of the firm’s 2020 “Gross McGinley Giving Back Tuesday” challenge grant initiative. All thirteen Greater Lehigh Valley nonprofits that participated in the program received a $1,000 year-end donation from the firm, for a total gift of $13,000 distributed to area agencies. Participants included Valley Youth House, Baum School of Art, Women’s Resources of Monroe County, Camelot for Children, Da Vinci Science Center, Communities in Schools of the Lehigh Valley, Second Harvest Food Bank, Community Bike Works, Mercy School for Special Learning, Rodale Institute, American Red Cross Pennsylvania Rivers Chapter, Lehigh Conference of Churches, and Sanctuary at Haafsville.
Through the program, Gross McGinley offered each the nonprofit organizations a $500 gift to be doubled to $1,000 if the nonprofit was able to match or exceed the initial gift through their Giving Tuesday campaign donations. To help create awareness for their organization and demonstrate how they would utilize a donation, each agency created a video which was shared on YouTube and social media using the campaign hashtag #GMGivingBackTuesday.
“The Giving Back Tuesday program truly showcased the Lehigh Valley’s appreciation for the nonprofit community,” says Jack Gross, Gross McGinley Managing Partner. “The outpouring of support for these organizations was evident, as each one was able to seize the challenge grant opportunity. We share their gratitude and trust this program provided much needed relief amidst a challenging season.”
Gross McGinley is actively engaged in the Lehigh Valley community. Whether volunteering for service projects, providing board leadership or representing nonprofits in legal matters, members of the firm give of their time and talents to enable the success of the region’s charitable organizations.
The firm’s Giving Back Tuesday initiative made a collective impact of more than $20,000. Nonprofits globally were impacted by the coronavirus, as fundraising events were cancelled, postponed or pushed to virtual events. As Gross McGinley continues to serve the nonprofit sector, the firm is optimistic for brighter days in 2021!
