Warner Honored with Macomb County 2020 Corporate Citizen Award

The annual Macomb Business Award program has recognized Warner Norcross + Judd LLP as the 2020 Corporate Citizen honoree.

 
After nominations from the county’s 27 communities are reviewed, a panel of judges names a single winner in each of the program's six categories. Warner's Macomb County office was honored for its commitment to corporate responsibility and dedication to philanthropy, both within the county and across the state.
 
"At Warner, we pride ourselves in our commitment to the communities we serve," said Frank E. Henke, executive partner of the Macomb office. "Giving back has been a Warner hallmark since the firm was founded almost 90 years ago. We're grateful for this Macomb recognition and will continue to do whatever we can to support critical initiatives." 
 
Warner, which has eight offices throughout Michigan, invests annually to support community programs, primarily in the firm’s five principal giving categories: arts and culture, economic development, health and human services, diversity, equity and inclusion, and legal aid.
 
As part of the nomination process, the firm shared the following information on several of its community service efforts, including:

  • In Metro Detroit, Warner makes donations to: Advancing Macomb, Forgotten Harvest, Life Remodeled, Women Lawyers Association, McLaren Macomb Healthcare Foundation, Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Junior Achievement, Alternatives for Girls, THAW, Cass Community and many more.

  • The firm's robust pro bono program provided 5,600 hours in free legal counsel to select organizations and individuals across the state in 2019.

  • Over $200,000 in diversity scholarships were awarded to students pursuing a law career.

  • A gift was provided earlier this year to the Equal Justice Initiative, a program committed to challenging racial and economic injustice in American society. This donation was made under the auspices of the firm’s Statement on Racism and Social Injustice, which outlined four action items Warner is implementing.

  • During the COVID-19 pandemic, Warner made financial contributions to support several at-risk groups with an emphasis on food banks and basic needs and initiatives to address racial and social injustice, including the creation of jobs for young adults.

In addition to firm-wide efforts, Warner attorneys and staff volunteer, hold leadership positions and contribute financially to numerous organizations that personally resonate with them.
