Support Legal Aid at Work

Our success depends on the generosity of law firms, corporations, foundations, the State Bar trust fund, and individuals.

We welcome donations large and small to our annual appeal, annual event, and special campaigns. And we invite you to designate Legal Aid at Work as a cy pres recipient.
