The Morrison & Foerster Foundation is one of the oldest law firm-affiliated charitable foundations in the United States. Since its formation in 1986, the Foundation has supported charitable organizations in the communities in which the people of Morrison & Foerster live and work. Information about our most recent year of giving can be found in our annual report.
The Foundation is funded chiefly by Morrison & Foerster partners, with additional support from the firm's professional staff and other individuals. In 2013, our annual charitable contributions totaled $4 million. Over the years, we have donated more than $40 million, primarily to local nonprofit organizations.
A lasting commitment to purposeful giving is one of the hallmarks of Morrison & Foerster. The Foundation's board of directors is especially grateful to the firm's partners and employees for their years of support. Together, we are committed to making a real difference, particularly for our communities' disadvantaged children and low-income individuals seeking meaningful access to justice.
