DONOR RISES TO THE CHALLENGE
When Mercy Housing Lakefront (MHL) launched their seven-year Moving Forward Together campaign in 2010, one donor rose to the challenge to lead the campaign to empower thousands of individuals to live in hope. When Denis Pierce and his company, Pierce & Associates Attorneys at Law, P.C., made a $1 million campaign commitment in 2010, they made a significant impact on the campaign goals and the lives of low-income families and individuals. This January, Denis Pierce renewed his commitment to Chicago’s low-income residents with an additional $250,000 contribution to the Moving Forward Together campaign.
“I believe that Mercy Housing has the capacity and the talent to actually execute their Moving Forward Together campaign and make a real difference in the city of Chicago,” said Pierce.
Denis Pierce is the founder and senior partner of Pierce & Associates as well as the President of the Pierce Family Foundation. Pierce is a 1969 graduate of the Loyola University Law School in Chicago. He is recognized as one of the first attorneys in Illinois to specialize in representing lenders in mortgage bank real estate litigation. He is actively involved in industry issues and has been a lifelong philanthropist with his wife, Martha.
“I want to thank Denis Pierce for his generosity in supporting Mercy Housing Lakefront,” said Cindy Holler, MHL President. “Our relevance in these new economic times is directly related to his incredible and remarkable support.”
At a time when many nonprofits are seeing a cut in philanthropic and government funding, Pierce & Associates has partnered with MHL with the common purpose of stabilizing communities.
“I’m a big believer in giving back. That if you are able to give back and help support people in need, then you should do that,” said Pierce. “You get so much in return – you feel better about yourself, you feel better about your community.”
