Kazan, McClain, Satterley & Greenwood announced today that it has been ranked number 41 on the San Francisco Business Times’ 2023 Bay Area Corporate Philanthropists List, which was published in a supplement in the San Francisco Business Times on July 28, 2023. The Corporate Philanthropy Awards’ list and supplement celebrates the Bay Area’s most generous corporate citizens and recognizes those companies that also give their time, talent, and resources. The annual list recognizes 100 top corporate philanthropists ranked by local cash giving. It includes for-profit companies and nonprofit health care organizations that made contributions to Bay Area based charitable organizations in the following counties: San Francisco, San Mateo, Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, Santa Clara, Solano and Sonoma.
For nearly 50 years, Kazan, McClain, Satterley & Greenwood has represented almost exclusively mesothelioma patients. Thirty years ago, the Kazan Firm had the foresight and aspiration to create the Kazan McClain Partners Foundation so the Firm could provide funds to support organizations and institutions that fight for the little guy. Over the years, the Kazan McClain Partners Foundation has given more than $25 million in grant money to many diverse organizations and hospitals including, the University of California San Francisco, Stanford University, the International Ban Asbestos Secretariat (IBAS), as well as Bay Area Legal Aid, East Bay Community Law Center, UC Berkeley School of Law and UC Hastings Center for Gender and Refugee Studies.
For example, Kazan Law has been a major donor to San Francisco Bay Area and Alameda County food banks. It also supports groups that provide legal assistance to underserved communities, and funds scholarships to increase professional diversity in the law. Kazan Law is a significant supporter of WORKSAFE, a California nonprofit that is committed to systemic change to protect the health and safety of workers, including those exposed to the hazards of asbestos. Kazan Law is in the forefront of providing grants to universities for medical research to acquire a better understanding and treatment of all aspects of mesothelioma.
“Kazan, McClain, Satterley & Greenwood’s generosity helps to raise the bar on corporate philanthropy and inspires more giving,” said Mary Huss, Publisher of the San Francisco Business Times. “Their participation in this program helps challenge others to do more.”
“I am so pleased to receive this honor on behalf of the Kazan Law firm and the Kazan McClain Partners Foundation which it funds,” said Steven Kazan, Founder, Senior and Managing Partner of Kazan Law.
