Honored companies are selected each year from three categories based on
business size: small, medium and large. The recipients of this year’s
awards were chosen from nearly 200 companies in the Minnesota Keystone
Program. They will be honored at the 41st Annual Minnesota
Keystone Luncheon on December 7, 2017.

Dorsey has over 100 years of community service and corporate
philanthropy in the Twin Cities that includes extensive pro bono work
for the disadvantaged, other structured volunteer work and broad-ranged
giving programs by the Dorsey & Whitney Foundation and by Dorsey &
Whitney itself.

In pro bono, Dorsey has met or exceeded the Law Firm Pro Bono Challenge
each and every year since the Challenge was launched in 1993 by
contributing more than three percent of hours worked to the
disadvantaged and to those who would not otherwise be able to afford
legal representation. In 2016, Dorsey attorneys donated 35,222 hours of
pro bono legal service.

Dorsey’s volunteer council provides numerous opportunities for employees
to participate in community events and initiatives. The council’s
mission is to develop and coordinate volunteer activities in which all
personnel can contribute to the improvement of their communities. In
2016, Dorsey’s attorneys and support staff devoted over 1,220 hours of
time to community activities. Projects included food drives, literacy
programs and working with the Eastwood Clinic for Teen Parents.

Through the Dorsey & Whitney Foundation, created in 1982, the Firm has
made contributions to a wide range of charitable civic and arts
organizations, legal assistance advocates and housing groups. The
foundation also matches gifts made by individual attorneys of the Firm.

In addition to the charitable giving done by the Foundation, Dorsey
itself supports a wide range of charitable, civic and arts groups in the
community. In 2016 and 2017 to date, Dorsey supported more than 150 such
organizations and events in the Twin Cities through sponsorships and

“We are honored to receive this recognition of the depth and breadth of
our community service and giving,” said Ken Cutler, Managing Partner of
Dorsey & Whitney. “The Firm has a deep commitment to the communities in
which we live and work. Our lawyers and staff believe very strongly in
giving back and in supporting the things that make our communities
great. On behalf of everyone at Dorsey, I want to thank the Minneapolis
Regional Chamber of Commerce for this honor.”

The 2017 Keystone Luncheon keynote speaker is Tawanna Black, executive
director of the Northside Funders Group. Jason DeRusha, Emmy-award
winning TV news reporter, magazine restaurant critic, and WCCO-TV
anchor, will serve as the emcee. The 41st Annual Minnesota
Keystone Luncheon will be held on December 7 at the Hyatt Regency
