Under the leadership of associates at leading New York law firms, The Legal Aid Society’s Associates’ Campaign raises awareness and vital funds for the Society’s Civil Practice which depends on private funding to provide legal assistance to the most vulnerable New Yorkers.

Funds raised through this campaign account for nearly 1/3 of annual individual contributions raised for our Civil Practice. Associates who begin their relationship with Legal Aid by contributing through the Associates’ Campaign continue to support our mission for years to come. Some of our biggest volunteers and supporters, including many of our past and current board members, were introduced to Legal Aid by participating in this campaign. The 2015 campaign was launched during a celebration at Gansevoort Park Avenue Rooftop.
