Matching Contributions

Some companies and organizations have gift programs that match employees’ charitable contributions. That means your gift can be doubled to support Pro Bono Institute.

To find out if your employer offers a matching gift program, contact your Human Resources Department.  You can also visit www.doublethedonation.com to see if your employer is listed.

Planned Giving

Estate planning is a tax-wise method for you to prepare for the future. Talk to your financial or legal advisor about ways you can leave a lasting gift to Pro Bono Institute, including bequests; appreciated assets; or naming Pro Bono Institute as a beneficiary of your insurance policy, pension plan or bank account. For more information about including Pro Bono Institute in your estate plan, contact Kelly Simon at (202) 729-6699 or ksimon@probonoinst.org.

Advance Access to Justice through Cy Pres Awards

Pro Bono Institute welcomes cy pres awards to help advance access to justice at a time when it is critically needed. Cy pres awards allow PBI to fulfill its mission of identifying resources for the provision of legal services to the poor, disadvantaged, and other individuals or groups unable to secure legal assistance to address critical problems.

PBI is the only non-profit organization mandated to support, enhance, and transform the pro bono efforts of major law firms, in-house corporate legal departments, and public interest organizations in the U.S. and around the world, reaching millions of individuals and communities in need.

Plaintiff and defense attorneys can recommend PBI as a recipient of cy pres funds. To learn more about how you can support access to justice by recommending PBI as a cy pres award recipient, please contact Kelly Simon, Director of Development, at (202) 729-6691 or ksimon@probonoinst.org.
