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.


CompassionateLEE has created a club on Strava, a running and cycling app that syncs to your Garmin, Pelaton, or Apple Watch. Join our club and be on the lookout for health challenges that will be posted to the group each month.

We are challenging each of you to donate $1.00 per mile walked, ran, cycled, or hiked, with a CompassionateLEE Club goal of 1,000 miles total for each month.  Join the CompassionateLEE Strava Club

FALL VIRTUAL BLOOD DRIVE: September 15 - November 15, 2020
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, 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. Your donation can help save up to 3 lives!

Regardless of if you prefer to donate with the American Red Cross, Canadian Red Cross, or your local blood center, we encourage you to pledge below and then set up a donation appointment at your preferred location. Our CompassionateLEE goal is to have 100 donors by the close of the drive. Pledge to Give Blood on our ARC SleevesUp Page

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.
