LexisNexis operates with a mission to bring the percentage of people living outside the umbrella protection of the rule of law down to zero. But what is the rule of Law? The rule of law consists of four principles- accountability, just law, open government, and accessible & impartial justice. This means that the government is just as accountable as we (citizens) are for the law. The law is clear and applied evenly between those who work in government and every citizen. The law is adjudicated, enforced, administered, and adopted accessibly and efficiently. Justice is also delivered timely by competent representatives who are accessible, reflect the makeup of the community, and have adequate resources. By having a strong rule of law, governments give business and society the stability of knowing that all rights are respected and protected.

The organization moved to the Miami Valley in 1982 and has since shown the community how much they are committed to it. LexisNexis is dedicated to playing a positive role locally, primarily through employee involvement. Their central focus is education for disadvantaged young people and community initiatives important to local employees. LexisNexis Cares encompasses volunteering, fundraising, in-kind contributions, and cash donations. They make a big impact by giving grants and charitable gifts to various Miami Valley nonprofits including Crayons to Classrooms, Montgomery County Ohio College Promise, and Big Brothers Big Sisters Miami Valley. Big Brothers Big Sisters is honored to have received a LexisNexis Cares grant for $12,000 in 2022 to support our community-based and school-based mentoring programs. When youth have a mentor, they are 54% more likely to avoid drug or alcohol use and 48% more likely to stay in school and attend college. The funds LexisNexis granted BBBS will support volunteer mentor recruitment, screening, background checks, interviews, assessments, training, materials, monthly case management and stem activities. LexisNexis has also been a long-time supporter of our community events which raise money for our School Based, Community Based, and Big Neighbors programs. Specifically, the company was a $5,000 “Big” sponsor for our 2021 event “Bright” which featured some of the Miami Valley’s best chefs to raise money for youth mentoring right here in the Miami Valley! Talk about a BIG difference! LexisNexis puts their community first and we are privileged to partner with them to improve the lives of children across the Miami Valley.
Since 1958, the mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters Miami Valley is to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth. Big Brothers Big Sisters operates under the belief that inherent in every child is incredible potential. We make meaningful, monitored mentoring matches between adult volunteers (Bigs) and local youth (Littles), ages 7 through 18, across Montgomery, Miami, Greene, and Preble counties. As the leading evidence-based mentoring organization in the Miami Valley, currently serving 344 local youth, we help children realize their full potential and build strong futures.
In addition to one-to-one mentoring, we provide group match activities focused on STEM to build confidence and self-efficacy around science, technology, engineering and math subjects and to expose them to various related career paths to help break the cycle of generational poverty. We also provide family care packages which include nonperishable food, personal care items and cleaning supplies to the youth who are in most need.
