Funding for legal aid

The legal aid community is kicking off a new season of fund-raising in October to coincide with Campaign for Justice Month. The campaign – formed by a network of legal aid organizations, private lawyers, the Office of Legal Services of the State Bar and the Legal Aid Association of California – raises money for legal services for the poor. Attorneys have the opportunity to contribute to the Justice Gap Fund when they pay their State Bar annual fees. The campaign recently recognized the 10 large law firms that reported the highest levels of participation by their attorneys from July 2013 to June 2014. Attorneys at these firms contributed $81,325, or 9.4 percent of the $860,000 collected in that time.
