Transforming Passion into Purpose

Mike Tankersley - A Hire With a Higher Purpose
Quote Icon
Karen and I believe the legal profession has an obligation to assure access to justice for lower-income individuals...That’s where CFT
stepped in, and helped us turn our philanthropic vision into
tangible results.

Business lawyer Mike Tankersley hires lawyers who will never work a single day for him. He and his wife, Karen, also an attorney, approached Communities Foundation of Texas seeking to translate their business law practices into courtroom assistance for the less fortunate. We helped them set up a donor-advised fund providing two years of support for a new, full-time lawyer at Legal Aid of Northwest Texas. It’s a hire with a higher purpose, and Communities Foundation of Texas helped make it happen.
