Brown Rudnick Donates Over $36,000 to GlobalGiving’s Nepal Earthquake Disaster Relief Fund
Boston, MA, June 4, 2015 – Brown Rudnick LLP, an AmLaw 200 firm with offices in the US and Europe, made a $36,210 donation to GlobalGiving’s Nepal Earthquake Disaster Relief Fund in support of emergency disaster relief efforts in the aftermath of last month’s Nepal earthquake. The donation was made through the Brown Rudnick Center for the Public Interest, the umbrella entity that encompasses the Firm's pro bono, charitable giving and community involvement efforts.
The donation came together as a result of a Firm-wide effort in which $25,000 was donated directly by the law firm. The remainder was raised through individual contributions from Firm partners and staff. Participants from all the Firm’s offices – Boston, Hartford, London, New York, Orange County, Providence and Washington, DC – took part in this initiative.
According to Brown Rudnick’s CEO, Joseph F. Ryan, “I am very proud that together we have reached out to Nepalese victims stricken by the recent earthquake and its effects, so that families will be sheltered, children will be fed and lives will be saved.”
In the past, through the Center, Brown Rudnick has made similar contributions to relief efforts in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013, Hurricane Sandy in 2012, and the 2010 Haiti earthquake. Most recently, the Firm contributed $60,000 to the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) in support of emergency disaster relief efforts in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan.
