Help for Nonprofits

New! COVID-19 Legal Resources for Nonprofits.

Since 1999, the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center has operated the Nonprofit Legal Assistance Program to provide legal assistance to the District of Columbia’s community-based nonprofits.

The Nonprofit Legal Service Assistance Program provides the following services:

  • Nonprofit Matches with Law Firms. The Nonprofit Legal Assistance Program matches community-based nonprofits with pro bono legal counsel that assist in areas such as employment law, real estate, corporate governance, contract review, intellectual property, and obtaining tax-exempt status.
  • Nonprofit Legal Clinics. The Nonprofit Legal Assistance Program offers brief consultations where nonprofits can meet one-on-one with attorneys on topics such as good governance and intellectual property. The events calendar is updated as these clinics are announced. COVID-19 Update: Due to increased need, some brief attorney consultations are available on a rolling basis to answer short, general nonprofit legal questions or address COVID-19 legal issues. All brief attorney consultations are offered virtually over video call or phone.
  • Nonprofit Trainings. The Nonprofit Legal Assistance Program conducts training sessions with government agencies and law firms to educate nonprofits on important legal issues such as board governance, employment law, nonprofit regulation, and other legal issues. The events calendar is updated as these sessions are announced. View recordings of past webinars in our online archive.
  • Nonprofit Legal Resources. The Nonprofit Legal Assistance Program offers free guides, alerts on law changes, a trainings archive and other useful legal information on our online resource center, through the LawHelp website.
