Your Support is Crucial

Thousands of New Jerseyans suffer needlessly from solvable legal problems.  Volunteer Lawyers for Justice (VLJ) is a statewide network providing free legal help to those in need.

Consider giving a tax-deductible donation to VLJ this month, in recognition of our 15 years of providing free legal services to disadvantaged adults, children, and families in New Jersey through pro bono representation. Without the generous support of people like you, VLJ would not have grown to be what is it is today.

“There are so many people out there who also aren’t being heard and VLJ lawyers can give them a voice, like mine gave me.”
— VLJ client, Children's Representation Program
“Helping others is one of the reasons I became a lawyer and why I continue to offer pro bono services to VLJ year after year. Bankruptcy is so valuable for some members of our community, because it provides them with a fresh opportunity to build a happy and successful life.”
— VLJ volunteer attorney, Bankruptcy Program

Direct Cash Gifts & Pledges

You may contribute a gift by using a personal check, cash or your credit card, or pledge a gift over an extended period. You may also make an outright gift of stocks, bonds, and/or mutual fund shares that have appreciated. This is an especially attractive option, as you enjoy significant tax savings by donating securities that you have held for at least one year. Any gift may be directed to a particular program or we can apply it to our most immediate need.  

Matching Gifts

Many employers will match cash gifts their employees make to nonprofit organizations. Such programs can double or even triple the value of your gift. Check with your employer to see if a matching gift program exists.
