A core value at Belin McCormick is helping build a better community by giving both time and money to community and professional programs and projects. Belin McCormick approaches giving by focusing on four strategic areas:

  1. Economic development through the Greater Des Moines Partnership;
  2. Human Services through United Way;
  3. Culture and the arts through organizations supported by Bravo Greater Des Moines and the Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines; and
  4. The legal profession through the Iowa State Bar Association

In addition to financial support, Belin lawyers and staff are actively involved in the community. Belin employees serve in many roles, including on-the-ground volunteers, board members and advocates. Our employees are passionate about the community and the organizations that make it a great place to live and work.
