The Auger Law Firm is very committed to helping others in the Greater Charlotte community, as well as many larger national non-profit organizations. Our consistent success and dedication to serving our clients and our community allows us to make substantial charitable donations and assist in a variety of fundraising on a regular basis. Here are some local community organizations we partner with:
Auger & Auger has donated over $30,000 for the Auger & Auger Disability Scholarship fund since the inception of the scholarship back in 2015.
We believe it is important for our firm to give back to the community that we are a part of and that has given us the opportunity to help so many injured victims during their time of need.
This scholarship aims to recognize those families who have overcome the aftermath of serious injuries and disabling impairments. As their partners through this trying process, we hear and see firsthand the unique challenges that disabled men and women face; we also have the pleasure to hear and see the strength and perseverance that each of them exhibits, which is necessary in overcoming obstacles and expectations in order to succeed – time and again.
Carolina P.A.W.S. is a non-profit organization comprised of a network of compassionate Carolinians, all of whom are volunteers. They are devoted to helping abandoned and abused cats and dogs throughout the greater Charlotte area find forever homes. CPAWS does not have a facility and relies entirely on volunteer foster parents to care for an animal until we are able to find a pet their forever home.
Auger & Auger Law has been a big proponent of helping to get these animals the care they deserve by donating over $5,000 in donations and helping several dogs be adopted through the 15+ hours their employees have donated to help P.A.W.S.
Since 2013, our firm has participated in the Walk Like MADD 5K Fun Run to bring attention and awareness to the issue of drunk driving. MADD has helped to save nearly 380,000 lives, reduce drunk driving deaths by more than 50 percent and promote designating a non-drinking driver. MADD’s Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving® calls for law enforcement support, ignition interlocks for all offenders and advanced vehicle technology.
MADD’s supportive services, anchored by local victims advocates and the 24-Hour Victim Help Line, have helped nearly one million drunk and drugged driving victims and survivors. In addition to participate in this event annually, we also fund a scholarship to help a deserving student make college more affordable after disability occurs.
Dream on 3, along with help from Auger & Auger and others nationwide, brings sports dreams to life for children by creating personal experiences with their favorite athletes, sporting event, or sports team. Dream On 3’s vision is to unite communities in promoting the dreams of our children. In that spirit, we partner with them, treating physicians and social workers to help identify candidates for a Dream Experience.
Beers and Burpees is a charity event that works in conjunction with Dream on 3 – Auger & Auger donates $1,000 and participates in annually.
The Annual Beers and Burpees Charity Event presented by Flexogenix is held in Charlotte. Over 25 local gyms (including CrossFit gyms, Orangetheory, Boot Camps and more) partner to host the event where the Charlotte Fitness Community and over 1,000 people come together to work out, drink beer and raise money for the Dream on 3 Charity organization.

A Better World is a non-profit after-school program that takes a holistic approach to serving kids in Ashley Park and surrounding communities. ABW utilizes small classroom sizes to deliver interactive lessons that complement students’ schoolwork, provides spiritual guidance, and supplies hot meals.
Auger & Auger has worked with Pastor Ken Gilliard and A Better World by providing $3,000+ in donations and volunteer hours to provide positive, educational after-school programs in Charlotte.
Wounded Warrior Project is a charity and veterans service organization that offers a variety of programs, services and events for wounded veterans of the military actions following September 11, 2001. Auger partners with the Wounded Warrior Project chapter in Fayetteville, NC to continue progressing for, working with and serving those who have made the ultimate sacrifices for us.
