The Legal Services Fundraising Training Program is designed to offer intensive development training, at no cost, to staff responsible for, and board members engaged in, fundraising at legal services organizations.
This training is available ONLY to those organizations that provide their services free of charge to clients.
The program is free to those who register in advance. A small stipend may be provided on an application basis, for select approved attendees from legal aid organizations.
Legal aid organizations that have development operations in place for at least one year may apply for the program. Submission of a timely application is required. In order for the applicants to qualify, their sponsoring organization must issue a press release and add to their web page, or through social media, an announcement about their upcoming participation in the Legal Services Fundraising Training Program sponsored by the ABA Litigation Section.
Approximately eight legal services programs will be accepted for the program; up to two staff members and one private attorney per program may attend the Legal Services Fundraising Training.
