The 2024 Investing in Justice Campaign Kicks Off in Style

The CBF kicked off the 18th annual Investing in Justice Campaign earlier this month with a special reception at the United Airlines headquarters. We are grateful to the nearly 100 firm and company leaders in the Campaign and the dozens of legal aid partners who came out to kick off the Campaign. Thanks again to this year’s Campaign Chair Bob Rivkin for his exemplary leadership and to the entire United team for their longtime leadership and strong support for the cause.

The Campaign rallies Chicago’s entire legal community around our profession’s common cause of helping to ensure that everyone has access to necessary legal help, not just people who can afford it. Each year, thousands of individual lawyers and legal professionals at nearly 150 Chicago-area law firms, corporate legal departments, companies, and other law-related organizations participate in the Campaign.

100% of individual contributions to the Campaign directly support the work of more than 30 pro bono and legal aid organizations and related initiatives, enabling them to provide critical legal assistance to tens of thousands of people in need.

The Investing in Justice Campaign is the largest campaign of its kind anywhere in the country. Since its inception in 2007, the Campaign has raised more than $20 million in individual donations, which has leveraged millions more in additional funding through the CBF’s foundation and government partners.
