Stange Law Firm, PC is proud to announce that we have been ranked the #14 biggest corporate philanthropists (small companies) by the St. Louis Business Journal. This list includes companies with fewer than 100 total employees, ranked by local and in-kind giving for 2019. Stange Law Firm contributed nearly $100,000 to local charities and nonprofits in the St. Louis area in 2019, continuing our strong tradition of giving back to the communities in which we operate.
Kirk and Paola Stange, founding partners of the St. Louis Family Law firm, have a long history of supporting St. Louis charities. They have sponsored the “Justice For All Ball” which benefits Legal Services of Eastern Missouri, whose mission is to advance justice through legal representation, education, and supportive services. The Stange’s were also Diamond Sponsors of “A Night in Margaritaville”, an event presented by Kids Rock Cancer with Maryville University, an organization dedicated to helping children successfully cope with the unique emotional challenges that accompany a cancer diagnosis. Extending their reach outside of the St. Louis region, Kirk and Paola have also sponsored the Board of Advocates at the University of Missouri – Columbia, and have established the Stange Law Firm Award at Emory University School of Law, a scholarship that honors the top participants in the Moot Court Program.
Their most notable philanthropic contributions involve the Old Newsboys, a non-profit organization that has raised millions of dollars for area children’s charities. Kirk and Paola Stange have been named Co-Chairs for 2020-21, and have been tapped to host an online fundraising event for the organization. The money raised goes towards purchasing basic needs items for St. Louis children, including clothing, medication, school supplies, bedding, food, books, computers, infant needs, and holiday gifts. “It’s important to give back, to get involved, to make the community a better place,” says Mr. Stange of Old Newsboys, “the mission is fantastic, helping kids. There’s no better choice.” The organization, now in its 64th year, has raised over $20 million to benefit St. Louis area charities.
