Charitable Sponsorship

We at Stevens & Brand, L.L.P., recognize our responsibility to make a positive difference in the Douglas County community. Since our firm was founded in 1925, we have demonstrated our commitment in this area through active support of a wide variety of causes and organizations. In order to effectively and prudently fund worthwhile projects, our charitable giving interests are focused on organizations which are active in the Douglas County community. Because we know that general operations is often the most difficult expense to raise funds for, we are committed to supporting fundraising events rather than the purchase of specific items. Finally, in an attempt to help as many worthwhile organizations as possible, it is our intent not to fund the same organization in consecutive years.

Agencies interested in receiving funds from Stevens & Brand, L.L.P., must complete our Charitable Contribution Application. The Contributions Review Committee accepts applications throughout the year, but only awards grants on February 1 and August 1 of each year. We look forward to hearing from you.
