Meet the Need, Join the L.E.A.G.!
Give monthly to Legal Aid of North Carolina and become a member of the Justice L.E.A.G. supporting Equal Access to Justice for all!
Why donate monthly?
Create long-term impact. Representation can provide individuals and families with pathways to economic security, and opportunity. Monthly gifts offer consistent and reliable support so our advocates can continue serving vulnerable North Carolinians even when our projects are underfunded or overburdened.
Spread your giving over the whole year. With monthly giving, you choose a gift amount that is best for your budget while making a big impact.
Decrease administrative costs. Automated giving reduces the time associated with handling and processing charitable gifts. You can also choose to receive a single annual tax acknowledgement that summarizes your full year of support.
What does L.E.A.G. stand for?
L.E.A.G. stands for Leaders Empowering Advocacy through Giving! By giving monthly, you are making it possible for our attorneys to continue serving the most vulnerable in our state even when there are funding deficits or drastic increases in need.
