In an article for The Indiana Lawyer, Faegre Baker Daniels partner Andrew Campbell shared his thoughts on how lawyers should give back to their communities through hands on projects. As president of the Indianapolis Bar Foundation, he has helped to select the 2015 recipient of the Indianapolis Bar Foundation Impact Fund Grant. This award provides $35,000 to a nonprofit in the area that is making a significant impact on the community and raises public awareness of the legal profession.
“We want to show the community the good things that lawyers do,” he said. “It would be easy for us to raise money, give it to an organization, pat ourselves on the back and feel good about ourselves. That’s not sufficient in our minds. We want lawyers involved and making an impact in the community.”
