Why Give

When attorneys participate in The Foundation's philanthropic programs, we all play a key role in ultimately having a significant impact on life in New York State.

Through the caring and sharing of lawyers, firms, and others, The Foundation supports the law-related programs of local legal-services agencies, non-profits, bar associations, and other organizations in communities around the corner and around the state.  The collective impact brings valuable access to justice for people in need who might otherwise be unrepresented, and for the support of legal education.

The Foundation awards grants applying 100% of the funds contributed.
The result is direct and meaningful support for:

  • Children
  • Domestic Violence Survivors
  • The Elderly
  • Tenants and Homeowners
  • Disabled Veterans
  • Teachers, Students, and Law Students

The Foundation has launched a campaign and invite you to be a part of it!
