5% Give Back
Partnering with Local Non-Profits
Clients of Swan Law Give Back to the Community
Giving back has never been easier with the 5% Give Back Program. This program directs 5% of our fees to local non-profit organizations.
How does it work?
When we work with a new client, we reduce our fees by 5% and ask the client to donate that 5% to their favorite, local non-profit or charity*. If they don't have a favorite, we have a list of causes to help them choose.
Then, we personally hand-deliver the client's check (usually about $100 - $300) to the non-profit, so we can get to know them better and learn more about how their work impacts our community, and where our values intersect.
For organizations who are interested in more than a one-time donation, we work with the non-profit to present an educational workshop, for their board, staff, or clients. These presentations can result in more donations and estate planning bequests.
We also include the non-profit in all of our marketing for the month, including our social media reach, handouts, and press releases. If they are hosting an event, we leverage our own power to help them spread the word.
We believe that giving back to the community is the right thing to do.
