In the fall of 2016, Faegre Baker Daniels’ offices in Boulder, Des Moines, Fort Wayne, Indianapolis, Minneapolis and South Bend joined together for the 2016 United Way Campaign, under the theme "United, We Are HumanKIND." Collectively, these offices raised more than $525,000 for their local United Way organizations.
The coordinated United Way Campaign was planned by the United Way chairs from participating offices, who also led efforts within their own office that included bake sales, awareness presentations of community needs and many other volunteer projects.
The generosity and service exhibited by the legal professionals and firm staff continue to uphold FaegreBD’s tradition of giving back to the community.
“We are honored to partner with an organization that does such a significant amount of good for our communities,” said FaegreBD managing partner Andrew Humphrey.
“The United Way Campaign is a great opportunity for our firm to collaborate on an effort embodying our core values of hard work, teamwork, mutual respect, diversity and service to our communities,” said FaegreBD chief operating partner Tom Froehle.
United Way Worldwide is the leadership and support organization for the network of nearly 1,800 community-based United Ways in 40 countries and territories. The organization advances the common good by improving education, helping people achieve financial stability and promoting healthy lives.
