Our Cases Become Our Causes

Anapol Weiss Foundation

Compassionate representation necessarily involves the willingness to listen to our clients and try to understand their experience. We wanted to not only help our clients, but others as well.

The Anapol Weiss Foundation supports people and organizations that promote community health and safety. Funded by a portion of fees from successful cases, the Foundation has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to non-profits that serve people with injuries similar to those of the firm’s clients.

The Anapol Weiss Foundation dedicated its first grant to The Burn Foundation, a non-profit that provides education and support to the burn care community as well as burn survivors and their families throughout the greater Philadelphia region. The Burn Foundation used the donation to launch a new family mentorship program for burn survivors and their families.

The Anapol Weiss Foundation also supports the Magee Rehabilitation Hospital Amputee Group.

The Foundation also made a donation in 2013 to allow amputee Saineh Barclay attend an Amputee Coalition Conference in California.
