Thank you for supporting The Legal Aid Society via the 2015 Associates' Campaign!
In a harsh economic climate, every dollar truly counts.
Thank you for appreciating the impact The Legal Aid Society has on the New York City community and the difference legal intervention can make to someone living at or below the poverty line.
Thank you for making a difference and helping us change lives.
ABOUT THE ASSOCAITES' CAMPAIGN
Under the leadership of associates at leading New York law firms, The Legal Aid Society’s Associates’ Campaign raises awareness and vital funds for the Society’s Civil Practicewhich depends on private funding to provide legal assistance to the most vulnerable New Yorkers.
Funds raised through this campaign account for nearly 1/3 of annual individual contributions raised for our Civil Practice.
Associates who begin their relationship with Legal Aid by contributing through the Associates’ Campaign continue to support our mission for years to come. Some of our biggest volunteers and supporters, including many of our past and current board members, were introduced to Legal Aid by participating in this campaign.
We are proud of the exceptional accomplishments of past campaign participants, and we are grateful for the unwavering support of the New York legal community as a whole. Thanks to last year’s donors, in 2014 our Civil Practice worked on more than45,500 individual cases and legal matters benefiting more than 114,000 low‐income children and adults, with virtually all low‐income New Yorkers benefiting from our active litigation docket of over 40 cases.
Of course, there is always more work to be done, and more clients in desperate need of our help.
Your support can make all the difference. We hope that you will join us for the 2015 Associates’ Campaign.

ABOUT THE LEGAL AID SOCIETY
Nearly two million people—more than one in five residents of New York City—live at or below the poverty level.
For these children and adults, persistent rates of unemployment and limited job opportunities, increased budget pressures at the City and State levels, and an extreme shortage of affordable housing have left them at greater risk of destabilizing legal problems and more in need of legal representation.
Against this background, every day, The Legal Aid Society provides a lifeline for basic survival for thousands of vulnerable New Yorkers, including vital programs to help children and their families address essential family needs.
