Giving to Legal Aid of the Bluegrass is an investment in your community

Hands together

Making decisions about giving is hard.

If you donate to other organizations, you likely know what your gift will do. A $100 gift will pay for 4 meals for an elderly person, a $50 donation to  will pay for medicine for an animal, or a $25 donation can buy a pair of shoes for a student. 

Legal Aid is not like that. 

Your gift to Legal Aid is an investment in your community. It bolsters our ability to ensure fairness, protect families, and change lives. 

By becoming a Legal Aid of the Bluegrass donor today with just $10, $25, or $50 a month is critical to saving these families from potential homelessness, loss of employment, health benefits, or even potentially save a life from domestic violence.

Your gift allows us to: 

  • Extend our hours 
  • Increase funding by offering federal match dollars 
  • Grow our staff
  • Meet emerging legal needs

Your membership will not only change the lives of our friends and neighbors but will insure that we will be here into the future, saving many lives.

Many families face extenuating circumstances that require legal help today. Your commitment to providing accessible and free legal services could make all the difference for those in need.



Many donors prefer to make gifts of appreciated stocks, bonds, mutual funds, or exchange-traded funds because it can have a large impact on our mission, while maximizing potential tax benefits by avoiding paying tax on capital gains.

You can also make a gift from your IRA or Donor Advised Fund (DAF).
