The Lawyers Clearinghouse leverages nearly $6 million in donated legal services each year on a budget of just $254, 000. This means a gift to the Clearinghouse is worth more than 20 times the amount donated.
Although our budget is small and our organization is efficient with its limited resources, our funding model is changing. With IOLTA funds dwindling, we now rely on donations from individuals and law firms more than ever.
By giving a gift to the Clearinghouse, you will ensure that homeless and at-risk individuals in the Boston area who have slipped through the cracks of the legal system have access to pro bono lawyers who can help them turn their lives around. You will also help provide critical legal services to Massachusetts nonprofits so they can better serve the community.
