Take Time To Give

For more than 60 years, the Mitchell Williams team has been giving back to charitable organizations in the communities where we live and work. We believe it is our responsibility to support our attorneys in their leadership roles with organizations that provide charitable, social, educational or cultural enrichment.

In 2004, we demonstrated our commitment by creating the Take Time to Give program to celebrate our firm's 50th anniversary. The program asked every person in the firm to donate 50 hours of their time to improving the community through volunteer service. That year, our firm donated a total of 8,270 volunteer hours of service. 

In 2009, we celebrated our 55th anniversary by choosing a “primary” Take Time To Give charity, awarding $25,000 to the chosen nonprofit organization along with a commitment of volunteer hours, pro bono legal services and exposure in firm marketing materials and advertisements for a year.  Since 2009, the yearly contribution has increased to a $50,000 donation to the annual primary charity or group of charities. 

2018 Applications
This year, Mitchell Williams will select one nonprofit organization in Arkansas and one nonprofit in Texas to benefit from its annual charitable giving program. Organizations that apply for Take Time To Give must have 501(c)3 tax status and must not have been the Take Time To Give primary charity within the past five years. The 2018 Take Time To Give application deadline is November 17, 2017.  Download the application and instructions here.
