Thanks to the leadership of 2020 Campaign Chair Sean Berkowitz of Latham & Watkins LLP, the Campaign Leadership Team, countless volunteers, and the thousands of individuals who contributed, the CBF’s 14th Annual Investing in Justice Campaign made a huge collective impact despite the difficult circumstances caused by the pandemic. More than 4,200 individual attorneys and legal professionals contributed more than $1.3 million. 151 law firms, corporate legal departments and other law-related organizations participated.

If there were ever a time for us to ask the question “if not us, who?” that time is now. More than ever, we really need to step up for our community’s pro bono and legal aid organizations and the people who depend on them. This is our responsibility as lawyers and legal professionals, and our leadership and generous support is going to be particularly critical.

The 2020 Campaign made possible more than $2 million in grants and support for the work of more than 30 pro bono and legal aid organizations and related initiatives. Thanks to a number of generous matching contributions from participating firms and companies, the CBF is able to dedicate 100% of individual contributions to the Campaign towards this support and to leverage more than $700,000 in additional funding from CBF foundation and government partners.
