Ice Miller Receives Spirit United Award from United Way of Central Indiana
Indianapolis – Ice Miller LLP was honored to receive the 2013 United Way of Central Indiana’s Spirit United award, presented recently at the organization’s annual meeting. The Spirit United award recognizes consistent volunteer and financial support for UWCI’s mission and priorities.
“We are very proud of this recognition. The award belongs to the members of the Ice Miller family who participated through financial contributions and volunteer efforts,” said Phil Bayt, chief managing partner of the Firm. “Ice Miller believes strongly in philanthropy – giving our time and talents to our community. It is great to have this special recognition for the Firm, but even better to realize that we have made a big difference in the lives of so many who need help.”
Attorneys and staff at Ice Miller are actively involved with many community organizations, with the largest contribution – more than $270,000 last year – to United Way. Partners match employee pledges to United Way, and the firm ranks among the top Indianapolis law firms for the number of people who pledge at a leadership level of $1,500 or more. In recent years, Ice Miller has been honored with the Company That Cares award for exceeding goals. Over the years, the firm's lawyers and employees have also served on United Way's board and committees, participated in Leadership United training and performed pro bono legal work for many nonprofit organizations.
To be eligible for Spirit United, a company had to have won United Way's Company that Cares award for the past three years, have provided financial support and resources above and beyond a successful workplace campaign and engaged significant volunteer support for United Way’s mission. Recipients are selected by a volunteer task force of previous winners.
