Check the Box - Support NHBA Pro Bono

Veterans desperate to see their kids, victims afraid of the next blow, seniors fearful of losing their homes, and parents working three jobs and still unable to pay their creditors. . . When you make a donation to the NHBA Pro Bono Referral Program by checking the box on your Bar dues bill, you will assist Pro Bono in seeing that low-income families, veterans and seniors are connected to the legal help they need. Your tax-deductible gift will help them by supporting what Pro Bono does best—annually leveraging several million dollars of donated legal services by New Hampshire attorneys that benefit several thousand low-income adults and children in need.

So just what does Pro Bono do with the funds it receives through grants and donations? These dollars support a small, dedicated staff who:

✓ Provide attorneys with a variety of opportunities to meet their professional responsibilities under Rule 6.1, including special projects such as DOVE, the Foreclosure Relief Project and the Low-Income Taxpayer Project
✓ Screen, develop and prepare cases appropriate for referral to volunteers
✓ Manage a large database of volunteer information
✓ Match volunteers with mentors as requested
✓ Help manage client expectations
✓ Develop and coordinate training programs
✓ Coordinate interpreters and other professionals
✓ Locate information/resources that volunteers need
✓ Recognize volunteer efforts

In addition, Pro Bono provides volunteers with:

✓ Primary malpractice insurance
✓ Waiver of court filing and service fees
✓ Reimbursement of out-of-pocket expenses
✓ Sample forms and materials
✓ And more!

In these days of shrinking IOLTA funds, your tax-deductible donation helps the nationally recognized NH Pro Bono Program maintain its effectiveness in helping to meet the legal needs of New Hampshire's disadvantaged and vulnerable citizens.
