The Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® Charitable Foundation was created in 1999 by the attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® for the express purpose of allowing the law firm and its employees to give back to the communities in which they practice.

In 2004, Charitable Funds were established by the Habush Habush & Rottier Charitable Foundation in the Greater Milwaukee Foundation, the Madison Community Foundation, the Community Foundation of North Central Wisconsin and the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region. The Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® Charitable Funds are particularly interested in funding projects related to consumer safety, youth safety, health issues and legal or law related matters tied to the preservation of the civil justice system and the right to trial by jury.

Since 1999 the Habush Firm’s Charitable Funds have distributed over 110,000 bicycle helmets to children throughout the State of Wisconsin who did not have a helmet or whose families were not able to purchase helmets. Most of the helmets were distributed at bike safety rodeos and summer safety programs run by police departments and community organizations throughout Wisconsin, where children learn bike safety and practice bicycle safety by riding through obstacle courses designed to teach the young bikers how to react to everyday traffic situations. In addition, many police officers around the state distributed bicycle helmets to neighborhood children while on patrol. In this way the helmet program helped promote positive, open relationships between local authorities and youth.
The goal of the program was to distribute over 100,000 helmets. We are proud to announce that we have exceeded that goal and will be directing our charitable funds to other causes in the future. We have greatly appreciated our partnership with agencies and programs across the state. We are confident that together we have helped keep children safer in riding their bicycles.
