What is Schwartz Supports?
Similar to the mission in our legal work at Richard Schwartz & Associates Injury Lawyers, Schwartz Supports is an extension of our law firm that aims to lend a hand to people all over Mississippi who are in need. From donations and sponsorships, to volunteering and advocating, Schwartz Supports wants to help our local community! Every month Schwartz Supports focuses on a different charity or effort that needs our help and attention. Turkey drives, school supply donations, and Make-A-Wish trips are just a few examples of what we are passionate about. Making genuine connections with the families that live in these communities while making a difference is incredibly rewarding, and we cannot wait for more opportunities to serve our state this year!
What is the Difference Between Donations and Sponsorships?
Although used interchangeably, donations and sponsorships are two different charitable acts. A donation usually involves giving money to a business or organization, but it can also include providing services or goods. Donations, sometimes known as corporate philanthropy, are given for the organization’s benefit without a requirement for publicity. Sponsorships are publicly recognized donations of money or in-kind gifts. For any monetary donations or product gifts, the sponsor receives some form of recognition or publicity, such as their name on a banner. Sponsorships are typically for charitable events. At Richard Schwartz, we are proud to support the community and local businesses with both sponsorships and donations. We value our neighbors and local companies, and we want to give back. Whether it’s making donations to the Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi or sponsoring St. Jude Research Hospitals, we are ready to help.
Nonprofits and Organizations We’re Supporting
We have actively been giving back to the local community for 40+ years. Our employees are involved with many local organizations, from donating to nonprofits, sponsoring students, and volunteering at community events. Whether cash or a gift, we want to make a big difference in our community. Take a look at the nonprofits, organizations, and companies we’ve supported in the past.
The sponsorships and donations we make at Richard Schwartz & Associates have a huge impact on the community. From donating to a back-to-school program to providing sponsorship for a nonprofit, we strive to support and highlight the charities that need us most. Below are just a few of the events and organizations we’ve supported over the last few months. If you need help, request support from Richard Schwartz today.
August 2022: Meridian School Supply Donation
Doug Lee, our Meridian, MS attorney, delivered thousands of supplies we donated to Northeast Middle School. Northeast Middle School is home to teacher Ashley Shier, winner of the 2022 Golden Apple award. Attorney Richard Schwartz says, “A new school year can come with a lot of stress, and we wanted to alleviate some of that by providing both students and faculty with proper materials to have a happy and successful school year.”
April 2022: Adopt-A-Shelter Pet
Adopt-A-Shelter-Pet-Day is celebrated on the last day of April every year, and this year Richard Schwartz & Associates Injury Lawyers, P.A., sponsored events in Jackson and Tupelo and donated these adorable reflective doggie bandannas.
March 2022: Mississippi Miracles
The Children’s of Mississippi Radiothon has been a passion of ours for 22 years, and counting. Our staff loves to get involved by donating their time to answering donors as they call to pledge their donations to Mississippi’s only children’s hospital.
February 2022: Make-A-Wish
This year, we teamed up with Make-A-Wish Mississippi to grant our friend Jordyn’s wish: a trip to Hawaii! Being able to provide this experience for such a special person, and her family, was something we will never forget.
