Help us cultivate a lifelong commitment to public interest law. Donations to PILI are an investment in the long-term stability of public interest law and pro bono. Our programs not only help meet immediate legal aid needs, but also provide the building blocks for participants to become leaders in public interest law and in pro bono, expanding and enhancing the availability of quality legal services for people living in poverty both now and into the future.
Members of PILI Giving Circles are a special group of supporters who embrace our mission and take a personal interest in our success. Click on the link above to learn more, or click here to see a list of our founding Giving Circle members.
Support from PILI Alumni is used each year to fund an Alumni Named Intern, ensuring that more law students and new lawyers will be able to have the same opportunity these Alumni had to participate in our Internship & Fellowship Programs in the future.
Named and Honorary Internships are a special way to make a difference in the life of a law student while also adding critical capacity to public interest law organizations seeking to better meet the needs of their clients.
