TorHoerman Law Employee Foundation

Helping others should go beyond the walls of the courthouse.

The TorHoerman Law Employee Foundation was established as a non-profit to use our company’s unique resources to benefit the communities we live and work in through various philanthropic efforts. The Foundation provides the opportunity for the daily operations of the law firm to merge with philanthropic efforts in the community.

Run by a rotating board of TorHoerman Law team members, the TorHoerman Law Employee Foundation is made up of individuals who are committed to supporting our community through outreach, sponsorships, scholarships, and more.

The foundation is a way to ensure that our firm is as dedicated to helping the community as it is about serving our clients. As lawyers, we have a responsibility to work together to help our neighbors.

If you have a donation request, please send all inquiries to info@thlawyer.com.

 

Thanksgiving Turkey Giveaway 

Every year, TorHoerman Law organizes a Thanksgiving turkey giveaway for those who need it most in the Alton, IL community.

This year’s Turkey giveaway will take place on Thursday, November 15 at the Alton Salvation Army. With only a few weeks left before the event, we ask that anyone interested in supporting the Turkey Giveaway reach out to THL’s Marketing Manager, Lindsey Andrews by calling our office at (618) 656-4400.

Many of our community members are not fortunate enough to afford a turkey for Thanksgiving dinner. The TorHoerman Law Annual Turkey Giveaway provides them with this opportunity. We would not be able to put on this wonderful event without the support of our gracious donors. This event is close to our hearts as we fully believe in giving back to the community, and every dollar we raise goes to support this mission.

Interested in learning more? Read about last year’s turkey giveaway in our blog or watch the video above.

 

Teacher Support Grant

As an educator, how could you innovatively spend a $2,000 grant to improve your students’ educational experience?

Most of us have at least one friend or family member who has dedicated their life to educating our children; there are around 3.6 million full-time teachers in the United States. Did you know many of those teachers have had to use their own money to buy supplies for their students? These individuals are not required to do this but choose to anyway in order to ensure that their students have the best educational experience possible. On a teacher’s salary, which averages a modest $60k a year, buying expensive supplies for students is quite a sacrifice to make.

TorHoerman Law decided to help our teachers with some of this burden. In September 2018, the TorHoerman Law Employee Foundation awarded two $2,000 grants and four $750 grants to local teachers to alleviate the costs of supplies.

Interested in applying for 2019? Check back for more information.
