Root for Team VIP

Your gift to VIP helps us all win

Support Philadelphia VIP

Thank you for answering the call to support Philadelphia VIP’s important mission. Every dollar you contribute helps provide access to justice to those who need it the most: low-income Philadelphians facing legal issues. VIP enables the private bar to support our neighbors in preventing homelessness, preserving their income, supporting family stability, and promoting our community’s economic development. When our clients win, we all win.

Your gift will help keep families in their homes, allow small businesses to succeed, and much more.

Thank you for making a difference.

Your gift improves lives

Each day, our low-income neighbors face legal issues that threaten their basic needs, including shelter, income, and family stability.

Your gift supports volunteer attorneys who represent such clients for free. The likelihood of winning a life-changing case can be solely based on whether or not they have legal representation. Together, we can improve their lives by helping them win.

 

Your gift wins justice

VIP is the “agency of last resort” for low-income Philadelphians seeking legal services. The average annual income for a VIP client in a two-person household is $17,844, and 87% of VIP clients are people of color.

Every dollar you give helps level the playing field for people who would otherwise need to navigate the legal system without assistance. Let’s fight for justice together and win together.

 

Your gift helps Philadelphia win

VIP’s programs focus on strengthening communities. Our volunteers work to preserve homeownership in low-income neighborhoods, support small businesses and local nonprofits, and stabilize Philadelphia families caught in legal battles. When our neighbors win, we all win.

We spend eighty cents of every dollar you give on legal programming. When you donate to VIP, you can rest assured your gift is helping Philadelphians win, one case at a time.

If you have questions about giving to VIP, please contact Jennifer Hwang, Development Manager.
