Foundation Honors Marc Krantz Through Legal Aid

The Myers Foundation Announces Gift to Legal Aid and Establishes The Marc Krantz Fund to Benefit Legal Services for the Poor.

The David and Inez Myers Foundation announces a $100,000 gift to Legal Aid over the next two years, including $50,000 to establish The Marc Krantz Fund to Benefit Legal Services for the Poor.  Krantz, who passed away in December 2014 at 54, ran Kohrman Jackson Krantz from 1999 until his death. He led by example, encouraging the attorneys at the firm to volunteer time and financial support to Legal Aid. The Myers Foundation wanted to memorialize its former trustee, and Legal Aid was the appropriate place.

“I hope when people remember Marc they will remember his kindness, his sensitivity and his awareness that society is uneven, and that it serves us all best when those who have the capacity try to level the playing field,” said Myers Foundation President S. Lee Kohrman.

“I’m sure people who knew Marc and value his memory will view this as a fitting memorial. I hope others who feel strongly about his memory and leadership of the whole community will remember the work he did and will be moved to add to this fund at Legal Aid,” said Kohrman.

This endowment fund will provide an investment in Legal Aid attorneys focused on civil legal issues of safety, health, shelter and economic security.

To make a gift to complement the Myers Foundation support, call 216-861-5590 or give online with the designation of “Marc Krantz Fund.”
