This holiday season, we are especially grateful for you – our supporters who believe in the importance of civil legal aid. Thank you for your partnership, which is transforming DC’s legal aid network so that all District residents have a fair and equal legal experience. 

When you give to the DC Bar Foundation, you reduce the gap between our neighbors’ level of need and costly legal services. For many, this may mean achieving protection from an abusive partner, attending a “know your rights” session in the community, or being able to stay in their home after an eviction attempt by a landlord.

The Foundation’s extensive knowledge of DC’s legal aid network means your gift touches as many lives as possible, empowering more District neighbors to face their legal problems with confidence. The end of 2019 is fast approaching, but there’s still time to make your tax-deductible contribution. Give access to justice this holiday season by making your gift today. Your support is life-changing for many in our community who need it most.
