Commitment to Our Communities

Butler Snow’s commitment to supporting and investing in the communities in which we live and work stretches back to the firm’s founding in 1954. The commitment to actively participate in the betterment of our communities is even outlined in our Partnership Principles. This commitment to our communities has transcended into the founding of the Butler Snow Foundation, which was established in 1997 with funding from a client who was especially appreciative of the firm’s work on a major legal matter. The Foundation is a private foundation supported primarily by Butler Snow attorneys.

Today, one of the ways that the Foundation invests in our communities is through our periodic grants. The grant recipients are selected annually by the Foundation’s board. Grants awarded by the Butler Snow Foundation are used to fund worthy causes or social services organizations in the communities Butler Snow serves. Such organizations have included Habitat for Humanity, Boys & Girls Club of the Gulf Coast, The Nashville Food Project, Mission First, Hands-on-Memphis and Nashville CARES, among others. Since its inception, the foundation has awarded more than $1 million in grants to organizations across the firm’s geographic footprint. 

The Butler Snow Foundation is directed and overseen by Butler Snow attorneys who make up its Board of Directors with input from an Advisory Board.
