About Harrity 4 Charity:

Harrity 4 Charity (H4C) is the giving-back initiative of Harrity LLP, one of the country’s leading patent law firms, headquartered in Fairfax, Va., which pledges five percent of its profits to charitable causes. Additionally, each of the firm’s 61 employees donates to the non-profit’s designated charities: American Heart Association; the non-profit INOVA Children’s Hospital in Fairfax, Va.; No More Stolen Childhoods, combating childhood sexual abuse; and ZERO—The End of Prostate Cancer.  Also, during the Coronavirus crisis, the firm created a COVID-19 Relief fund to assist people across the country who are impacted by the pandemic. H4C was founded in 2016 by John Harrity and his twin brother, Paul Harrity, partners of Harrity, LLP, following John’s near-death experience at age 49 from a “widowmaker,” the most deadly heart attack possible—surviving with a need to be purpose-driven.
