Generous Associates Campaign

Help Make Justice Real this Summer

03214_Ruemmler_ Kathryn H._DC_HiResOriginalThe Generous Associates Campaign is an annual fundraising drive run by associates at Washington, D.C. law firms each summer. Although contributors to the campaign include associates, partners, non-lawyers, and the firms themselves, it is a campaign that allows the true generosity of the associates in our legal community to come through in spectacular fashion.

The Generous Associates Campaign allows Legal Aid to continue to provide free legal services to the neediest members of the D.C. community in the areas of domestic violence/family, housing, public benefits, and consumer law. The Generous Associates Campaign raises approximately one fifth of Legal Aid’s budget each year.

2015 Honorary Chair: Kathryn H. Ruemmler Latham & Watkins LLP


The 2014 Generous Associates Campaign raised more than $1.2 million! Legal Aid thanks all of our donors, and especially, all the associate Co-Chairs and Coordinators who led the Campaign, for Making Justice Real this past summer.

Congratulations to the members of our Outstanding Generous Associates! recognition program, and to the firms that placed in our Top Fundraising Firms competition.
