Donor Spotlight: Profit Recovery Partners, LLC

One of the many reasons behind the Emeril Lagasse Foundation’s success is the incredible generosity of our donors.

In 2015, the Emeril Lagasse Foundation established an endowment fund as an investment in both the present and the future of the organization. Gifts to the endowment have a lasting influence on the Foundation, allowing it to continue supporting current projects, incubate new initiatives and grow its reach and positive impact on the lives of young people.


Profit Recovery Partners, LLC is one of our generous corporate donors who has made a commitment toward the continued success of the Foundation by making a pledge to the endowment.

Founded by Don Steiner in 1997, Profit Recovery Partners (PRP) is a California-based professional services firm that develops, implements and manages cost-reduction solutions for a variety of companies. Over the past two decades, PRP has grown to become the largest administrative cost reduction consulting company in North America.

After learning more about the Foundation’s work through board member Paul Frank, PRP recognized an alignment between the Foundation’s mission and the values on which PRP was built.

“The Emeril Lagasse Foundation’s mission focuses on finding ways to help people and create better communities,” said Bill Fowler, vice president of PRP. “At Profit Recovery Partners, our mission also centers on helping people and making long-lasting differences in the way our clients do business. 

With a commitment to social responsibility also at the core of its operations, PRP recognized an opportunity to give back and make a difference beyond its standard business initiatives.

“Our company decided to become a donor to the Foundation’s endowment fund because we believe in the importance of corporate social responsibility,” said Don Steiner, president and CEO of PRP. “The Foundation supports great programs that are truly making a difference in people’s lives, and it’s important to us as a company to aid that support and take part in giving back. 

We are endlessly grateful for the continued support of donors like Profit Recovery Partners. Such gifts to the Foundation’s endowment fund allow the organization to grow beyond where it is today and positively touch the lives of young people for years to come.

The Emeril Lagasse Foundation welcomes donations of any denomination from individual donors or corporations who support our mission. Learn more about the Foundation’s endowment fund and find out how you can make a donation by visiting our Get Involved page.
