Generous Associates Campaign

Help Make Justice Real this Summer
The Generous Associates Campaign kicks off on June 1st! This campaign is a 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.

Last year, the Generous Associates Campaign raised a record-breaking $1,367,000 – approximately one quarter of Legal Aid’s budget! This 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. This year’s Co-Chairs have chosen to set an ambitious goal of raising $1.4 million this summer. We hope you will join us by becoming a coordinator at your firm or by contributing directly to the campaign!

2016 Campaign Goal:

$1.4 Million

We are excited to have Neal leading the Generous Associates Campaign effort this year in addition to hosting the Campaign’s Kick-Off Reception on June 8th at Hogan Lovells starting at 6:30 PM.
