To be eligible for VIP’s services, a nonprofit organization must:
- Have a mission that benefits low-income individuals, a low-income community, or Philadelphia’s public interest
- Demonstrate that the nonprofit is unable to pay for legal services without significant impairment of program resources
To apply for free legal assistance, please fill out the form below.
VIP also asks all nonprofit applicants to provide:
- A projected three-year budget, or an actual three-year budget if the organization is in operation
- Contact information for the nonprofit’s Board of Directors and Officers.
After you complete the form, a VIP staff member will reach out to you to confirm your eligibility and gather more information related to your legal need.
