The Gallop law firm is launching a unique charitable awareness and fundraising initiative called "The Year of Making a Difference" to benefit local non-profit enterprises that assist people who may be impoverished, sick, disabled, or looking for a second chance in life, including children, adults, senior citizens and military personnel.
Gallop Managing Partner Thomas J. Campbell observes, "So far as we know, Gallop is the only law firm in St. Louis with a progressive program of this kind. Many law firms support a variety of non-profit enterprises. Yet, it is never enough because charitable needs in our community loom large. "The Year of Making a Difference" is one way Gallop is trying to do more in a challenging economy."
Starting in January 2012 and throughout "The Year of Making a Difference", Gallop will partner with one non-profit organization each month, except in one month where two charities that often work together will be jointly showcased.
- Each month, Gallop will launch a charity awareness campaign on www.LinkedIn.com and via additional communications.
- The firm will acknowledge every new follower of Gallop's LinkedIn profile by donating one dollar to that month's participating non-profit organization.
- Every month, Gallop attorneys and staff also will provide volunteer support and hands-on participation in activities managed by the non-profit organizations.
Laura B. Callahan, Gallop Director of Marketing, asserts, "We created "The Year of Making a Difference" after asking ourselves, "How can Gallop truly support deserving non-profit entities by increasing their profiles, performing meaningful volunteer tasks and raising money in a way that complements Gallop's business mission and makes a positive impact?" We found the answer by developing this unique program.
"The Year of Making a Difference" advances Gallop's historic commitments to supporting non-profit organizations and, also complements our firm's client-focused approach apparent in our tag line "The Difference is Evident." We are very excited about this new charitable initiative because it will distinguish participating non-profit organizations by boosting awareness of their service missions and, also, distinguish Gallop as a law firm dedicated to meaningful community involvement," Callahan says.
