In-House Attorney Drive
In 2017, over 155 in-house attorneys at area companies raised over $108,000 to help Greater Boston Legal Services advise and represent people who need legal help but cannot afford to pay a lawyer. The generosity of in-house attorneys across the Boston area allowed Greater Boston Legal Services to continue its critical work fighting for its clients’ most basic needs, including affordable housing, access to life-saving healthcare, safety from domestic abusers, and access to needed employment. Without your help, GBLS would not be able to serve over 10,000 individuals and families. Thank you for making “justice for all” a reality for our most vulnerable neighbors!
How Much Should I Give?
Typical gifts range from $150 - $1,000. Here’s how your gift can help an individual or family facing one of the most challenging situations of their lives:
- $1,000 could enable a GBLS attorney to represent an abuse survivor in divorce and custody proceedings;
- $500 could fund the representation of an elderly person to access medication and health care;
- $250 could help a homeless family obtain emergency shelter.
Note: Grant recommendations to your donor-advised fund can be made online here. Checks made payable to Greater Boston Legal Services can be mailed to GBLS c/o: Lauren Shryne, Greater Boston Legal Services, 197 Friend Street, Boston, MA 02114.
