Support Legal Services in Dane County

The Pro Bono Trust Fund, a project of the Dane County Bar Association, provides essential support to non-profit organizations that provide civil legal services for persons who fall below 300% of the federal poverty rate. Its grants go directly to pay the cost of legal services as well as the cost of equipment and materials needed by non-profit organizations to operate effectively and leverage other volunteer or low-cost resources.

The Fund makes grants to non-profit organizations that provide legal services to persons most in need in Dane County. These grants are made possible entirely by contributions from the community.
