Since our inception in 2010 we have dedicated considerable time and resources to giving back to the community with a hands-on approach to charitable activities. Since 2013, the Firm has raised over $750,000 for charity. In 2016, we established the Lucosky Brookman Foundation, a private foundation with an annual budget through which we provide donations to qualified organizations on behalf of the firm. The Foundation was created to take over the management and coordination of the law firm's ever-increasing charitable contributions and activities.
The Lucosky Brookman Foundation's primary goal is to use the power of philanthropy to impact the lives of those less fortunate with a particular focus on children’s causes. The Foundation hopes to educate individuals and bring awareness to various sponsored initiatives that make a profound difference on other individual's lives now and far into the future.
The Firm maintains strong relationships with our “flagship” charities which have often involved large-scale events in which everyone in the office, including family and friends, can participate. To that end, the Firm has previously hosted two charity golf outings at Trump National Golf Course, two charity Casino Nights at the prestigious Capitale in Soho, NY, and a Charity Night.
It is very important that Lucosky Brookman, through its charitable giving, demonstrate that the Firm's core values and culture is about more than providing excellent service to its clients and more than just words on a page. We are committed to being an active participant in making a difference in the lives of others through action.

MAKE A WISH FOUNDATION
The Firm is an avid supporter of the Make A Wish Foundation. As part of Lucosky Brookman's continuing commitment to children's charitable causes, since 2013 the Firm has donated over $50,000 to the Make A Wish Foundation. Lucosky Brookman partners have joined friends, clients and colleagues each year at the Make A Wish Annual black tie charity fundaiser, held in Miami, Florida.
The Make A Wish Foundation grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions. According to the Make A Wish Foundation, the granting of wishes makes children feel stronger, more courageous, and more determined to overcome their illnesses. Many families and healthcare providers believe the wish experience is the turning-point in a child's battle against their illness. Lucosky Brookman is proud to be an ongoing sponsor of the Make A Wish Foundation.
KNOCK KNOCK GIVE A SOCK
Knock Knock Give A Sock is a unique college-started initiative adopted by Firm. KKGS is dedicated to fulfilling one of the most basic human needs of those experiencing homelessness in our communities. KKGS discovered the significance of something as simple as a pair of socks during a chance encounter with a homeless man on a cold November night. The man requested a warm pair of socks as an alternative to the sandwich being offered. Socks are the single most in demand item needed by the homeless yet are among the most under donated article of clothing. KKGS donates socks to homeless shelters in various cities across the country. Lucosky Brookman recognizes that even minor acts of kindness, such as donating a pair of socks, can make a tremendous impact on someone’s life and the community.
