Support Our Work
The generous financial support Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles receives from law firms and individual attorneys, corporations, foundations and the public demonstrates solid community backing for LAFLA’s mission and is a reflection of our strong ties with the private bar, the business sector and the communities we serve.
By augmenting funding provided by a variety of federal, state and local grants, the voluntary support we receive enables LAFLA to provide access to justice to thousands of poor and low-income people who otherwise would have nowhere else to turn for help with their legal crises — when domestic violence or slum housing conditions endanger their health and safety, unscrupulous landlords and scam artists threaten to turn them out of their homes, or bureaucratic error denies them their rightful access to medical care and supportive services.
How You Can Help LAFLA
Law Firm Campaign
Support from public-spirited law firms throughout our service area makes it possible for the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles to provide access to justice for thousands of poor and low-income people who otherwise could not afford an attorney to help them seek their legal rights.
Participation in the Law Firm Campaign enables members of the legal community to fulfill one of the legal profession’s most basic tenets, embodied in the words above the entrance to the Supreme Court of the United States: “Equal Justice Under Law.”
Associates Advisory Board
LAFLA’s Associates Advisory Board is comprised of associates from over 40 of LA’s major law firms. The AAB supports LAFLA by enhancing awareness of LAFLA’s mission, striving to increase pro bono involvement and engaging in fundraising efforts to support LAFLA’s programs and services. If you’re looking for leadership or networking opportunities, membership on the AAB is a great way to get started!
How to Get Involved:
Whether you are interested in providing pro bono legal services, planning social and recruitment events, or fundraising, the AAB has a committee for you:
Pro Bono—As a member of the Pro Bono Committee, you can work with LAFLA to develop pro bono opportunities for the Associates Board. Pro Bono committee members also act as liaisons for LAFLA to help get their individual firms involved in one of LAFLA’s many service projects, such as LAFLA’s program to provide legal assistance to undocumented victims of domestic violence.
Fundraising Committee—Committee members encourage charitable giving to LAFLA by overseeing the Associates Campaign for Legal Aid, the primary fundraising vehicle of the Associates Board.
Recruitment Committee—The Associates Board is always seeking new members, and working to maintain relationships with existing members. The Recruitment Committee performs outreach and hosts events to recruit associates from law firms throughout Los Angeles to join the Associates Board.
Social/Outreach Committee—This committee plans and prepares summer social events to increase awareness of LAFLA and the Associates Board among law students, firm associates and the larger legal community.
For more information on how to join AAB, please contact Phong Wong, Pro Bono Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
