Give Better

Give Now

VIP’s proven model of inspiring and supporting pro bono service requires resources. We rely entirely on contributed funds to support our mission of expanding
access to justice.

It costs VIP approximately $750 to support each
attorney matched to an individual client’s case.

This leverages close to $4,000 worth of
donated legal services on an average case.

Your donation goes further with VIP

Our model unlocks a powerful leveraging opportunity.

Every $1 spent on VIP’s budget yields over $4 worth of legal services, thanks to volunteers contributing their time and talent.

 

Your donation is directed toward impact

VIP prioritizes program services and operates with low overhead. On average, close to 80% of VIP’s budget is directed to program services; when including in-kind services from volunteers, the share rises to 96%.

 

Your donation supports a proven model

As researchers from Harvard Law School’s Access to Justice Lab who studied VIP’s divorce program concluded in 2018,

Philadelphia VIP’s divorce representation program was effective, spectacularly so. The program made a difference in its participants’ lives. There is little more to say.

VIP offers multiple ways for donors to structure their gifts. If you do not see an option that works well for you, please don’t hesitate to contact us so we may customize an approach for you.
