Wheeler Trigg O'Donnell Establishes Charitable Foundation

02.01.2006

The Wheeler Trigg O’Donnell Foundation was created to promote volunteerism among the WTO community and to channel donations to charitable organizations in a focused, synergistic fashion. Established at the end of 2005, the Foundation’s initial act was the funding of the first "Wheeler Trigg O’Donnell Minority Scholarship" as part of the Minority Corporate Counsel Association’s Lloyd M. Johnson, Jr. scholarship program. Additional charter projects initiated by the Foundation included: donating funds to Legal Aid of Colorado, and Denver Children’s Advocacy Center; providing volunteers and resources to help Hurricane Katrina victims through Operation Safe Haven and to serve as mentors in the Denver Kids, Inc. program; and organizing holiday party and gift donations for the families of the Colfax Community Network, and for the children served by Denver Active 20-30 Children's Foundation and Denver Court-Appointed Special Advocates.
