Tips for a Successful Champions for Justice Campaign
1. Put one person or a small team in charge – It helps to have champions within your workplaces – individuals who agree to send emails, encourage others to participate, etc.
2. Set a goal – Whether it’s a participation or dollar goal, having something to work towards helps build momentum. For example, our Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP) awards typically range from $6,000 to $8,000 per public interest lawyer. This is a good goal for medium to large offices. Some LRAP recipients receive the maximum annual award of $12,000, which may serve as a joint goal for a law firm and corporate client to raise together (see #6 below).
3. Offer a challenge – In some cases, a partner has agreed to match individual gifts over a certain amount.
4. Make it visible – Share our campaign graphic in your emails and on social media to help spread the word. Consider adding a link to donate to your workplace's giving page in your email signature. We also ask that you like and share posts via social media using #ChampionsforJustice.
