Gilmore Jasion Mahler Marks 25th Anniversary

Gilmore Jasion Mahler, LTD (GJM) celebrates its 25th Anniversary today, March 16, 2021, and will mark the milestone by doing something that comes quite naturally: giving back to others. The GJM25 Make Change community service campaign will feature 25 “good deeds” by the firm and its staff throughout the course of the year. While GJM has always been committed to community service, 2021’s initiatives will be especially mindful of increased community needs due to the impact of the pandemic on so many.

“We know there are many individuals and families in great need. Many have lost their jobs and are struggling to meet basic needs. We’ve chosen some initiatives and donation drives to support this year that will help meet some of these basic needs,” says GJM Managing Partner and co-founder Kevin Gilmore.

The firm has already identified the 25 events, fundraisers, “boots on the ground” activities, and donation drives that GJM staff will support throughout the rest of 2021. In fact, one of the firm’s donation drives is already wrapped up. GJM helped collect school supplies as part of a United Way of Greater Toledo/Leadership Toledo campaign to get notebooks, pens and other school supplies to Toledo Public Schools high schoolers as they went back to the classroom in March.

Examples of some of the other initiatives the firm will support as part of “GJM25 Make Change” include:

Children’s Mentoring Connection of Hancock County “Bowling for Kids-Plus”: GJM will host a bowling event at the GJM Findlay office in support of the organization’s major annual fundraiser “Bowling for Kids”. Children’s Mentoring Connection of Hancock County offers a mentoring program for children who are often from single parent families.  

Lucas County Pit Crew Donation Drive: GJM staff member Diane Nelson volunteers a great deal of her time for this organization, which rescues and finds loving homes for Pit Bull Terrier type dogs and community cats. The firm will hold a donation drive for the organization to collect pet food and other needed supplies.

YWCA Northwest Ohio Donation Drive: GJM staff will collect items off the YWCA Northwest Ohio Domestic Violence Shelter wish list, including diapers, food, kitchen supplies and more. The shelter offers a safe place for those escaping abuse and is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.    

“Since day one, community service has been one of our core values at GJM,” says Assurance Partner & co-founder Adele Jasion. “We’ve always found a way to come together as a team and make a difference. I can’t imagine a more fitting initiative to mark our 25th milestone.”  

The GJM25 Make Change campaign is essentially already underway. It will run throughout the rest of 2021. You can follow the firm’s acts of kindness on the GJM blog at and on social media. The firm is using the hashtag #GJM25MakeChange. GJM is on Facebook. Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn.
