Applications Open for 2019 Steinberg Community Fund
“All of us have a meaningful reason for becoming an attorney; we believe it’s important to give back to the community and we provide compassionate representation when you need help.”— Attorney Michael Jordan
Steinberg Law Firm understands that giving back to the community is just as important as taking care of our clients. Each year, our firm is proud to partner with numerous nonprofit organizations and Title 1 schools by providing our time and resources to make this a better community for everyone. Each year we look forward to volunteering at numerous organizations with our staff. This includes sponsoring a few Title 1 schools to donate over 3,000 helmets and safety gear. We also partner with new organizations through our staff’s Community Fund Program.
The Steinberg Law Firm Community Fund Program was started in 2015 as a way to learn about more charitable causes and award deserving organizations with funds ranging from $200 to $2,500 to help with unmet needs. The Steinberg Community Fund Program is completely facilitated by our staff, who get to select the organizations which mean the most to them.
Past recipients include The Doors to Freedom, The Henry Timrod Library, Yo Art, Inc., Tri-County Veterans Support Group, My Sister’s House, and Lowcountry Orphan Relief. We are honored to have helped veterans, children, senior citizens, and animals! We are also committed to volunteering at each organization chosen through our Community Fund Program.
We are excited to announce the application for our 2019 Community Fund is now open!
