Foley & Lardner is proud to have signed a national partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America in July 2021 supporting the youth development organization’s diversity, equity and inclusion efforts. Foley is the first law firm to partner with Boys & Girls Clubs of America on a national scale.
Together as partners and thought leaders, Foley and Boys & Girls Clubs of America will elevate the powerful message of diversity, equity and inclusion, and activate the potential of kids, Clubs and communities to build more inclusive and equitable futures. Foley has committed to provide outreach to the communities in which the firm practices, with a focus on providing support to advance equity for Black communities that have been historically under-resourced. All of Foley’s 22 offices across the United States will partner and engage with their local Clubs on initiatives that include mentoring, read-aloud programs, school supply drives and playground improvement projects.
For 160 years, Boys & Girls Clubs of America has provided a safe, affordable place for kids and teens to learn and grow during critical out-of-school time. More than 4,700 Clubs serve 4.6 million young people through Club membership and community outreach.
