Legal Aid Society

Planned Giving

The Legal Aid Society’s ability to go beyond anyone case to achieve systemic reform is due in large part to the partnerships with leading corporations and businesses across the city.

For over 140 years, The Legal Aid Society has stood in defense of those individuals who have struggled in silence, impacting the lives of the more than 2 million New Yorkers living in poverty. We proudly fight for those with nowhere left to turn, driven each day by our guiding mission: that no New Yorker should be denied access to justice because of poverty. As the nation’s largest social justice law firm, we offer life-changing legal services to those who need it the most, leaving an indelible impact on the clients and communities we serve.

Whether it be through continued pro bono or financial support, New York City’s business community has been a steadfast advocate for the clients and communities in which we work and live.
