Michael Levey, a partner and attorney with Quarles & Brady LLP, has donated hundreds of hours to the Wisconsin Equal Justice Fund as a board member of the past five years, said the fund's executive director Aly Lynch.
Levey, who prior to joining the board had been a donor since the WEJF's founding in 1997, also gives generously of his time, attending meetings, organizing and serving on several committees, and working to obtain funding for the organization, Lynch said.
"Mike's dedication to the cause, raising funds for free civil legal aid services for low-income individuals and families, as well as people living with disabilities, in Wisconsin, clearly shines through in his amazing efforts and successes," Lynch said.
In 2019, Levey was selected as the board president.
"During his year as president, he led a major effort to increase sponsorship requests from Wisconsin-based corporations and corporate foundations," Lynch said.
In 2020, Levey was able to raise double the funds he raised from corporations and foundations in 2019, despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
