Cy Pres

Our programs benefit every year from cy pres awards directed to our programs by trial attorneys who know that they are highly suitable candidates for these class action residuals (and other funds resulting from lawsuits). If you have questions about how we serve the low-income community in matters from consumer debt, to domestic violence, to medical-legal partnerships, to high school and college programs, email Yolanda Jackson at

Planned Gifts & Bequests

We welcome planned gifts, bequest and other instruments which provide long-term sustainable funding for our programs.
