  • Ask donors for their continued support of the Pro Bono Center
  • Inform donors about upcoming Pro Bono Center activities
  • Internal analysis and record keeping
  • As required by law and for reporting to government agencies

In addition, donor names may be published in our annual report and similar materials in order to recognize the donors’ support for the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center and its services. At a donor’s request, we will not publish their names in our annual report or similar program materials.

Financial Information
