Giving our time and talents
June 1, 2012

This is the final installment about MP&F’s recent pro bono work for some of our city’s nonprofit organizations.
In 2011, MP&F provided more than 3,800 hours of pro bono service to 30 Middle Tennessee nonprofit organizations. In 2012, we’re once again giving our time and talents to support deserving nonprofits selected through an application process each December.
Here’s a glimpse into how we support a few of our pro bono clients.
- Hands On Nashville Flood Anniversary
Since May 3, 2010, more than 29,000 volunteers have donated 375,000-plus hours to participate in flood-related volunteer programming coordinated by HON and its rebuilding partners, adding up to a projected economic impact of more than $8.2 million, according to Independent Sector Research. MP&F has helped HON tell the stories of Nashvillians giving back and help others recover from the flood through ongoing media relations efforts.
- The Tennessee chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Light the Night Walk Corporate Recruitment Kickoff Breakfast
Speakers shared information at the May 3 Corporate Breakfast with members of the Nashville business community about LLS, the blood cancer research and patient services it funds, and how the money raised from this year’s Oct. 12 walk will make an impact on the Society’s work. MP&F provides media relations support.
- Friends of Radnor Lake Steve Winwood Concert and Purple Cow Moograss Jam
Steve Winwood (“Higher Love,” “Roll With It,” “Can’t Find My Way Home”) performed a benefit concert for Friends of Radnor Lake on May 18 at Fontanel Mansion benefiting the Tennessee state park system’s oldest and most successful nonprofit support group. On May 26, Granny White Market hosted its ninth annual bluegrass jam with nine performances to raise funds for Radnor Lake. MP&F lent a hand with communications and social media support.
McNeely Pigott & Fox is glad to give back to the great city we call home and looks forward to further supporting our community’s hardworking nonprofits this year.
