Lee & Associates' 501C-3 charitable organization, CompassionateLEE, was founded in 2019 and is focused on bringing people together to assist our Lee family members and others in our communities in times of crisis. Our goal is to provide the members of our organization with an opportunity, a few times a year, to focus on helping others by extending a hand of support in our local communities during an emergency or wherever we see a chance that someone may need our help. We will also be raising money through Lee Offices fund-raising events. Money raised will go towards offering support when emergencies arise and to other worthy causes outside of our own organization to do our part to make the world a better place.


At this time, the blood banks across the country are in need of continued support.  The COVID-19 pandemic caused the cancellation of thousands of blood drives nationwide and though immediate patient needs are being met, the need for blood never ends. Even with the quarantine, life still goes on and accidents happen, and people are still fighting cancers, blood diseases, etc. If you’re like many others and need a good reason to get out of the house, click the pledge button to find a blood drive near you and schedule your appointment to donate. The need for blood is constant and the American Red Cross needs to collect 13,000 units per day in order to meet the needs of the patients and hospitals they serve. Your donation can help save up to 3 lives! While you're there we encourage you to take a smiling selfie and #CompassionateLEE on social media. Take precautions, remain safe, but let’s try to help each other today.

Is my financial information secure throughout the donating process?

PayPal helps keep your transaction secure by not sharing your full financial information. This layer of security disintermediates CompassionateLEE from collecting unnecessary data, but enables the organization to collect your donation.

How can I be sure my payment went through?

Any time you send a donation through PayPal the system will send you an email to confirm the transaction. As a reminder, if you ever receive a confirmation email for a PayPal transaction you did not make, alert PayPal right away and an investigation will be launched.

Will I receive a tax receipt for my donation?

Yes. Every donor gets a tax receipt from PayPal for each donation they make. PayPal sends tax receipts to donors by email.

How do I request a refund for a donation?

Donations to CompassionateLEE through PayPal are generally not refundable. If your donation was made in error, or was not authorized by you, review PayPal’s Donation Refund Policy to learn more.

How can I support CompassionateLEE on a regular basis?

PayPal provides a checkbox at the time of transaction labeled “Make this a monthly donation.” Once selected, you’ll authorize PayPal to pay CompassionateLEE each month. You can change or cancel a recurring donation anytime in your PayPal account settings.
