The DC Bar Foundation’s annual Call to Action campaign is now underway. So far, 19 firms and corporations have generously committed $162,449, or 30% of our $550,000 goal. You can see a complete list of Call to Action donors on our website.
Dollars raised through Call to Action support training programs for legal aid lawyers, provide financial support to those same attorneys through our Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP), and bolster the Foundation’s operating grants, which provide critical unrestricted funding to legal aid organizations in DC. These grants help some of our grantees keep the lights on to continue offering life-saving services to residents in need.
We thank those who have given to Call to Action consecutively over the years, particularly those who have increased their gift amounts. Your continued support expands the Foundation’s reach in the civil legal aid community. It helps make it possible for us to transform DC’s civil legal aid network so that all District residents have a fair and equal legal experience.
