Wolf Greenfield is proud to announce the completion of another successful fundraising campaign for the Greater Boston Legal Services (GBLS) Associates Fund Drive. Each year, Wolf Greenfield employees raise funds to support the work of GBLS on behalf of domestic violence survivors.
Wolf Greenfield’s efforts raised more than $149,000, setting a new record for the firm. This amount included donations from every associate, counsel, patent agent, and technology specialist in the Boston office, with the firm’s shareholders providing matching funds. Wolf Greenfield was awarded the Jack Ward Cup for the 11th year in a row as the highest fundraising firm in the Drive. This year, Wolf Greenfield’s effort was led by associates Michelle Nyein, Phil Hamzik, and Charlotte Stewart-Sloan.
The Drive benefits the GBLS Family Law Unit, which provides free civil legal aid to low-income survivors of domestic violence to restore them and their children to an economically sustainable life free of abuse. The GBLS Family Law Unit also addresses broader legal and public policy issues that perpetuate domestic violence and obstruct the road towards physical and emotional well-being and economic independence for people who have experienced domestic violence.
“Every year we are so proud of the hard work and dedication our individuals put in toward this campaign, but even more we are humbled by the crucial work being done within GBLS to provide aid,” said Wolf Greenfield shareholder Mike Rader, who helped lead the firm’s shareholder fundraising efforts.
The Drive is a grassroots fundraising effort, having been created and commenced by associates themselves in the 1990s. The money raised directly impacts the ability of GBLS attorneys to serve low-income domestic violence survivors.
