Community Activities

The firm and its attorneys and employees donate substantial monies and considerable time and effort to charitable, community, and professional organizations. The firm has been recognized in each of the past thirteen years as one of Greater Boston's largest corporate charitable contributors by the Boston Business Journal. The firm's aggregate cash contributions to charitable organizations over those thirteen years substantially exceed $3,000,000.00. The firm is particularly involved in supporting organizations in the cities and towns in which its offices are located, and the firm has a particularly close relationship with many charities based in the Town of Burlington, Massachusetts, where the firm has had offices for over 45 years. In recognition of the firm's commitment, the Burlington Area Chamber Charitable Foundation named its annual scholarship program in memory of the firm's deceased partner, Harold C. Dulong. Harold was widely recognized for his leadership in civic and charitable endeavors. The types of organizations which the firm supports financially covers a broad spectrum, including those focused on preventative health, the interests of children, education, and the arts.

Some of the people who make up Riemer & Braunstein ride in the Pan Mass Challenge to benefit the Jimmy Fund (part of the Dana Farber Cancer Institute) and sponsor and ride in the Rodman Ride for Kids and the National MS Society's Greater New England Chapter Cape Cod Getaway. Attorneys and employees of the firm also run and walk in marathons and other similar events, and they commit themselves and their time to the good deeds of those organizations.

The firm also made a substantial contribution to One Fund Boston, a fund formed to help the people most affected by the tragic events that occurred at the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013.

Riemer & Braunstein is also proud to annually support Citymeals-on-Wheels which helps feed New York City's homebound elderly residents.
