If you want to continue to support the fight for civil rights beyond your lifetime, then legacy giving is the donation option for you.
When you choose to leave a legacy donation to the Lawyers’ Committee, it doesn’t mean your family will be negatively affected. By leaving a percentage of your will, like 15% or 20%, you can ensure that you are providing for your family’s needs while still donating to a cause you value.
Commemorate the life and memory of a friend or relative by donating to support the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law in our continued struggle for equality.
By donating in the name of a deceased loved one, you can help their legacy live on.
To celebrate a milestone, anniversary, birthday, wedding, or other momentous occasion, consider donating in the name of a loved one.
Give a gift that really matters to your family and friends this year, and donate in their names to the Lawyers’ Committee.

Help us fight voter suppression with a donation specifically to Election Protection, the coalition created to help voters navigate an unfair and unjust system and make sure every ballot cast is properly counted.
Your targeted donation frees up other resources at the Lawyers’ Committee to aid in other initiatives, and it ensures that Election Protection will have the support it needs moving forward.
To increase the impact of your gift to the Lawyers’ Committee, see if your workplace matches donations. Ask your human resources department about your employer’s workplace giving options, as many companies will match your contribution up to a pre-determined limit.
You can also donate to us through your local United Way affiliate if you write in “The Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law” as your designee.
