Give From Your Heart

Your gift to VIP makes a difference

Support Our Mission

Empower your community with Philadelphia VIP. Your gift helps a low-income neighbor keep their home, a parent and child stay together, a small business succeed, and much more. Please join us in advancing our shared mission.

By January 1, 2022, our team aims to raise the funds needed to match 100 individuals and their families with volunteer attorneys so that they can overcome critical legal issues. On average, it costs $750 to support each attorney through a VIP case. Help us raise $75,000 before the New Year.

Thank you for making a difference.

Give from your heart; empower your community.

Your gift changes lives

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

Your gift supports attorneys who represent such clients for free. Every dollar you give yields four dollars of free legal services for a VIP client.

 

Your gift fights injustice

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 balance the scales for people who would otherwise need to navigate the legal system without help.

 

Your gift builds up Philadelphia

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.

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

If you have questions about giving to VIP, please contact Amy Young, Communications & Development Associate.
