The firm donated almost $100,000.00 in cash as well as a significant amount of pro bono volunteer hours - to nonprofit organizations and causes in the Baltimore area last year. Offit Kurman’s philanthropic activities in 2015 included sponsorships and contributions to causes such as cancer treatment and research, after-school education and leadership development for children at risk, and health care and human services for people living with disabilities. The firm’s nonprofit partners have included the Chimes Foundation, the Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center, Fight to Learn, Boy Scouts of America, the Casey Cares Foundation, and more.
“We are a law firm that strongly believes in giving back to the communities we serve.
