Need Legal Aid Help? Get Started

Planned Giving


Make a Decision Today to Create a Better Tomorrow!

Create a better tomorrow by including The Legal Aid Society of Cleveland in your estate plan and become a charter member of "The 1905 Society." Let Legal Aid know your intentions and enjoy benefits of "1905 Society" membership, including recognition receptions and free CLE's.

Membership in The 1905 Society through a planned gift to Legal Aid will help preserve Legal Aid's future and help the organization continue its mission to secure justice and resolve fundamental problems for people who are low income and vulnerable by providing high quality legal services and working for systemic solutions. Your planned gift of any amount will have a lasting impact for those in need in Northeast Ohio and your legacy will further our work towards equal access to justice for all.
