Under the leadership of Associates at leading New York law firms, The Legal Aid Society’s annual Associates’ Campaign raises awareness and vital funds for The Legal Aid Society’s Civil Practice. Individual gifts raised through this campaign account for nearly one-third of all individual contributions raised for our Civil Practice each year, which relies heavily on private funding to provide legal assistance to the most vulnerable New Yorkers, helping them obtain and maintain the basic necessities of life.

The 2019 Associates’ Campaign saw The Legal Aid Society and its law firm partners reach new heights - raising a record $442,509! This outpouring of support goes a long way towards making equal justice a reality for our clients.

Thank you for joining us for the 2019 campaign.
