In addition to our dedication as fierce advocates and leaders in personal injury law, Anapol Schwartz serves the community as part of firm policy. The firm has established several groups and organizations that give back to the community in various ways.
The Anapol Schwartz Foundation
The Anapol Schwartz Foundation (ASF) was established in 2008 to support people and organizations that promote community health and safety. Funded by a portion of fees from successful cases, the Foundation has donated more than $250,000 to support non-profit organizations that serve those who have suffered injuries similar to our clients.
The Anapol Advocate Award Physical Therapist Curry Durborow received the 2012 Anapol Advocate Award for her role in traumatic brain injury research and education projects. ASF presented a $5,000 grant to the Brain Injury Association of Pennsylvania on her behalf.
The Burn Foundation With part of the firm's fees in an unsafe products case, the Anapol Schwartz Foundation gave the Burn Foundation a grant to create a family mentorship program for burn survivors.
Magee Rehabilitation Hospital Anapol Schwartz opened a fund for the Caren Sydnor Locomotor Training Fund at Magee Rehabilitation Hospital Foundation, which provides much-needed locomotor training to other spinal cord injury patients when insurance runs out.
