For the fourth consecutive year, Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck has been named an honoree of The Civic 50 Colorado by CSR Solutions of Colorado and Points of Light, the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service. The award recognizes the firm as one of the most community-minded companies in Colorado, determined by an independently administered and scored survey. The Civic 50 Colorado initiative, modeled after Points of Light’s national program, provides a standard for superior corporate citizenship and showcases how companies can use their time, talents, skills and resources to drive social impact in their company and communities.
“Brownstein is committed to giving back and we’re proud to receive this great honor acknowledging our efforts for the fourth year in a row,” said Director of Community Relations Jayme Ritchie.
The firm invests in its communities through board service, volunteerism, sponsorships, donations and pro bono legal services. Approximately 67% of Brownstein’s attorneys and policy professionals serve on nonprofit boards and committees. Karma Committees in each of the firm’s offices help plan and lead “done-in-a-day” volunteer projects and drives to support local nonprofits and those in need in our community. Last year, the firm had 463 volunteers provide nearly 4,000 hours of volunteer service through 130 Karma Projects. Brownstein also had 72% of its attorneys participating in pro bono and achieved a total of 12,726 pro bono hours.
Brownstein was officially recognized along with the other The Civic 50 Colorado honorees on Nov. 10.
