Legacy for Justice Society

The Legacy for Justice Society was created to celebrate the generosity of our donors, and to assist supporters who want to provide for our endowment through their estate planning.

Membership is available to any individual, couple, or family who makes a planned gift commitment for the benefit of Bay Area Legal Services. As a member of our Society, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that your philanthropy will enable BALS to maintain and improve our programs. Lifetime benefits* include:

  • Recognition in BALS publications and on our Legacy for Justice Society plaque in our Main Office lobby.
  • Society for justice membership lapel pin and thank-you gift.
  • Recognition at the annual BALS Donor event and invitations to special events.
  • Periodic updates and messages from BALS.
  • Confidence that your giving has provided a lasting legacy of caring, compassion, and access to justice in our community.

* All requests for anonymity will be honored.
