This November marks the kickoff of our Call to Action campaign, the DC Bar Foundation’s largest annual fundraising effort. Through this initiative, and the generosity of local businesses, DCBF is able to consistently provide critical resources to civil legal aid organizations through the District.
Our fundraising goal for this year’s Call to Action campaign is nearly $700,000. Your gift towards this goal is critical in lifting the barriers of access to justice that leave so many District residents without the legal support and resources they need. All gifts received through Call to Action support training programs for public interest lawyers, provide financial support to attorneys through our Loan Repayment Assistance program (LRAP), and strengthen our grants program to support direct impact in DC’s civil legal aid community.
We thank those who have given to Call to Action consecutively over the years, particularly those who have increased their support. Your continued support expands the Foundation’s reach in the civil legal aid community and empowers District residents as they tackle daunting legal circumstances they would otherwise face alone. We also thank the D.C. Access to Justice Commission for their Raising the Bar in D.C. Campaign, which establishes benchmarks for law firm giving and promotes the importance of supporting legal services in the District.
