Community Leadership

Harper Grey is committed to making our community a better place to live. This stems not just being a good "corporate citizen", but from being neighbours, coaches, parents, teachers and leaders engaged in genuinely helping others.

We give our time and our philanthropy to a host of worthy organizations each year. For example, each spring, our lawyers and staff hold a fundraising auction. Staff choose the designated charities. Everyone contributes creative prizes (spring garden cleaning, gourmet dinners at a partner's home) and bids on their favourite items. We have raised and donated almost $200,000 for charity since the tradition began.
