TAGFoundation logoTAG Foundation: Who Are We?: Global Generosity

The TAG Alliances are a significant part of the international business community, with the capacity and desire to help those in need. We are proud to join other prominent members of our community through the TAG Foundation.

Members of the TAG Alliances interact with one another on a daily basis, demonstrating the benefits a global alliance brings to clients around the world. While member firms are charitable in their local jurisdictions, often they do not have a trusted outlet to respond to needs elsewhere.

TAG Foundation provides a means for TAGLaw, TIAG and TAG-SP firms to contribute funds for charitable purposes around the world. With advice and counsel from a committee of advisors and from members in affected areas of the world, TAG Foundation funds provide aid to local charities around the world, most often in response to natural or other disasters. Since its founding, the TAG Foundation has donated over $150,000 to disaster stricken areas around the globe.

Present the TAG Foundation to your firm's charities committee and ask them to consider adding TAG Foundation to their distribution list. Download a TAG Foundation flyer for your use.
  • Host a Jeans Day at Your Firm: Hosting a casual day is a popular way to contribute while also providing an opportunity for everyone in your firm to identify with your TAG membership. Many firms generously choose to match their employees’ donations to leverage their impact. Designate a "Jeans Day" benefitting TAG Foundation by encouraging donations of any size from your staff in exchange for a casual day in the office. Download a template "Jeans Day Flyer" for your use.

Hurricane Harvey in Texas

HFB TransparentLogo2

August 2017, Hurricane Harvey became the costliest tropical cyclone on record and devestated the Houston metropolitan area. Houston is a unique city within the TAG Alliances community, because it is the only city in the world where we have TAGLaw, TIAG, and TAG-SP members in addition to a “Best Friend of TAG”. Additionally, our own team member, Lourdes Allende, lives and works in the Houston area. In the storm's aftermath, TAG Foundation trustees approved the immediate disbursement of $5,000 USD to the Houston Food Bank.

Earthquakes in Mexico
