Per Attorney

For decades, law firms have measured their donations by the number of lawyers in their local offices multiplied by a standard hourly rate* — referred to as per attorney giving.  We are grateful to those firms that honored this tradition through their gifts to the 2022 Annual Fund.

*currently $300/hour
