The Young Lawyers Division and the North Carolina Bar Foundation are teaming up for the third year in a row to coordinate #GivingTuesday on November 28 and make it another one to remember!

For this year, the YLD and NCBF are raising money to fund the NCBF’s civic education and pro bono programs, including Wills for Heroes, 4ALL – Lawyers on Call, Disaster Legal Services, and many other priceless programs. We invite all those who can to make a gift to continue supporting impactful programming across the state.

By donating on November 28, you will immediately make a difference and help mobilize members of our profession to impact individuals in need within their communities and beyond. Every gift, regardless of the amount, makes a difference!

  • Your gift of $25 supplies one Lawyers for Literacy volunteer team the books needed to serve students in a Title I elementary school.
  • Your gift of $50 supports one day of operation of the NC Free Legal Answers web-based pro bono program, available 24/7/365.
  • Your gift of $100 covers the software licensing fee for 10 Wills for Heroes volunteer lawyers to produce end-of-life planning documents for NC first responders.
  • Your gift of $500 subsidizes the cost of one hour of phone service for the 4ALL – Lawyers on Call event, the NCBF’s largest annual pro bono program.

Members of the YLD are deeply committed to pro bono and civic education. Your gift will make a tremendous difference in support of all NCBF pro bono and civic education programs and the staff who support NCBA Section, Division and Committee member engagement in service.

The YLD launched the Wills for Heroes program, organizes Law Week programming each May, administers the annual Legal Feeding Frenzy, coordinates programs to serve the profession, and partners with the NCBF to engage YLD volunteers in pro bono and civic education programs serving North Carolinians statewide. Each of these programs is possible thanks to generous support from individuals like you. Your year-end commitment as part of this campaign promises returns throughout the next year as your gift makes possible 4ALL – Lawyers on Call in March, statewide Wills for Heroes clinics, the YLD Disaster Legal Services efforts, Middle School Mock Trial events, NC Free Legal Answers, and more.

There has never been a better time to make a gift to the NCBF and support YLD’s efforts. Help us continue to grow #GivingTuesday and surpass all previous years for NCBF pro bono and civic education programs. Mark your calendars and pay it forward with a gift to the NCBF on November 28, #GivingTuesday!
