The Associates’ Campaign
The annual Associates’ Campaign is one of the largest fundraising efforts undertaken by The Legal Aid Society each year. The Campaign is driven by associates and other professionals at partner law firms across the city, representing an excellent way for younger members of the legal community to engage in our work and make an impact on the lives of vulnerable New Yorkers.

About the Associates’ Campaign
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to force the shutdown of our city, support of this initiative is more important than ever before. This crisis has jeopardized the health and safety of some of our most vulnerable clients, including the homeless, the elderly, incarcerated individuals, and victims of domestic abuse.
The Legal Aid Society is working tirelessly to support those New Yorkers whose lives and livelihood have been upended and impacted by this crisis.
As many people are looking for ways to help out during these uncertain times, we want to make sure everyone has the chance to make a difference.
To ensure we are able to sustain our operations, the annual Associates’ Campaign will be accepting gifts from everyone – not just staff and attorneys at participating law firms, but also friends and family.
There are a number of ways to support this campaign but as the pandemic has forced us to shift operations to a virtual environment, the most efficient way to ensure your contribution goes to support those in need is to make a gift online or via wire transfer using the information below:
