Founded in 2009 and supported by our shareholders, associates and staff, the MMR Foundation provides funding to numerous organizations throughout the Southern Illinois and St. Louis Metro East areas. Particularly in difficult economic times, members of the firm recognize the increased demand for these services and embrace the opportunity to support organizations such as the Christian Activity Center, Sister Thea Bowman Catholic School in East Saint Louis, Glen Ed Pantry, the Memorial Foundation and the Alzheimer’s Association.
Since its inception, the foundation has contributed over $135,000 in support of area organizations.
“Our attorneys and staff members feel fortunate to be able to contribute to such worthy causes that help families in our area,” says Mark Stegman, shareholder at MMR.
The Foundation ultimately tries to help organizations that are committed to helping others. No organization is too large or too small to support. Recently, the firm delivered gift cards to local law enforcement officers in Belleville, Edwardsville and Nashville, Illinois. This gesture was to show how thankful we are for the men and women who lay down their lives to protect our community.
