Campaign Nears Fundraising Goal

The 2016 Campaign for Legal Services is entering the fourth-quarter push to reach their goal of raising $275,000 this year to support civil legal aid at New Hampshire Legal Assistance and the Legal Advice and Referral Center.

Campaign Leadership Council Chairman Wilfred “Jack” Sanders Jr., of counsel at Pierce Atwood, has been meeting with leaders of firms around the state to encourage continued support for these important programs.

By the end of October, the Campaign had raised almost $220,000, 10 percent more than had been raised at this time last year.

Sanders and other members of the Campaign Leadership Council have made a concerted effort in 2016 to broaden the base of support for civil legal aid among the bar, the bench, all branches of government, and the business and professional communities, he said.

“We’re talking with leaders in financial services, insurance, energy, health care and many other sectors. When we tell them about legal aid, they realize, access to justice is a problem that doesn’t just affect lawyers, it affects the entire community,” Sanders said. “We all benefit when legal aid clients have access to advice and representation. Our communities are stronger when veterans can access their benefits, when seniors are protected from financial exploitation, and when domestic violence victims can escape their abusers and secure their safety.”

Bar members and other past and potential Campaign donors will soon receive an annual mailing from the Campaign, but contributions can be made at any time.

Secure, tax-deductible donations can be made online at www.nh-cls.org, where the Campaign also posts comments from donors and stories of real New Hampshire clients helped by civil legal aid.

Supreme Court Rule 42(9) requires all NH admitted attorneys to notify the Bar Association of any address change, home or office.
