Lerners 90th Anniversary Charitable Giveaway DONATION RESULTS

In May of this year, Lerners announced that in celebration of our 90th anniversary as a law firm, to honour those who have been integral to our success, we would be donating $90,000* to not-for-profit organizations and charities identified by our people and the community-at-large that impacted them in a meaningful way.

The response to our Giveaway was tremendous. In the initial phase, we received more than 250 inspiring submissions representing close to 90 charities. A panel of judges, comprised of lawyers, clients and staff members had the difficult task of narrowing these stories down to our Top 10 Finalists. We then invited the public to vote on which of 10 available donations of up to $30,000 would be made to our 10 Finalists, and received more than 12,000 votes. We are pleased to announce that the $90,000 will be distributed as follows:

  1. Parkdale Community Legal Services - $30,000
