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.

Co-Chairs Kirk and Paola Stange to Host Virtual Charity Event for Old Newsboys

Founding Partners Kirk and Paola Stange will be hosting an online fundraising event for Old Newsboys on Thursday, November 19th.

The Stange’s, 2020-21 Co-Chairs for Old Newsboys, have been supporters of the organization for nearly a decade. When asked about converting to a virtual format for the event, Paola Stange stated, “It’s a long-standing tradition in St. Louis and we pride ourselves on that. Rain, snow, sleet and now COVID-19 won’t keep us down. We want to make sure everyone stays safe and decided it would be better to do a virtual event. Since the corners are not able to be manned, spreading the word about donating is really important.”

Kirk Stange echoes that sentiment, stating ““It’s important to give back, to get involved, to make the community a better place. Old Newsboys is one that supports many charities and does so much good. The mission is fantastic, helping kids. There’s no better choice.”

The Stange’s follow a long line of St. Louis legends and notable chairpersons for Old Newsboys that includes Stan Musial, Ozzie Smith, and Billy Busch. Lou and Jackie Brock have also served as chairs emeritus.

Donations are currently being accepted through the Old Newsboys website, on Facebook, or by emailing oldnewsboyscharities@gmail.com
