Legal Community Drives
LEARN MORE ABOUT EACH OF OUR LEGAL COMMUNITY FUNDRAISING DRIVES
Each year, associate attorneys at nearly 50 Boston-area law firms participate in the Greater Boston Legal Services Associates Fund Drive. The Drive is a grassroots fundraising effort, having been created and championed by associates themselves in the 1990s. Through the Associates Drive, Boston-area associates raise hundreds of thousands of dollars annually to support GBLS' work with survivors of domestic violence.
Legal departments at Boston-area corporations come together every year to give to the Greater Boston Legal Services Corporate Fund Drive. Through the Corporate Fund Drive, General Counsels and in-house legal department leaders raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to support GBLS' critical work for people with low incomes who need legal support for issues concerning health, housing, employment, and more.
Through the In-House Attorney Drive, attorneys at Boston-area companies join their colleagues in contributing to Greater Boston Legal Services’ work providing critical legal assistance to people when they need it most, such as when survivors of domestic violence and their children seek protection against abuse, or when homeless families who have inappropriately been denied emergency shelter seek safe, secure living arrangements.
Every year, thousands of individuals and families in Boston lose their homes, their health insurance, or their children simply because they did not have a lawyer when it mattered most. For over 120 years, Boston-area law firms have raised money to support Greater Boston Legal Services’ work providing free legal representation in critical civil legal matters, often achieving lasting victories to help people move out of poverty.
You can make a difference in the lives of low-income members of the Asian community by supporting the Friends of the Asian Outreach Project Donor Campaign. For close to 50 years, the Asian Outreach Project (also known as the Asian Outreach Unit) at Greater Boston Legal Services has provided bilingual, culturally sensitive legal representation to help poor Asian immigrants secure the basic necessities of life – food, shelter, income and safety. Every year, AOP advocates assist hundreds of low-income Asian clients to help improve their lives.
