Go Casual for Justice

Go Casual

The DC Bar Foundation’s Go Casual for Justice denim-day fundraiser kicked off on Monday, October 21, 2019.

Go Casual for Justice brings together justice-loving workplaces and individuals from across the District in support of DC’s civil legal aid network. When a workplace registers to participate, their employees can dress down to work once they make a donation to the DC Bar Foundation. We know that some workplaces accept casual dress every day, which is why we encourage participants to be creative with their campaigns! If your office is already casual, we suggest hosting special events for donors, like exclusive raffles or  happy hour receptions to thank them for their generosity. 

Last year, nearly 40 law firms, corporate law departments, banks, and other workplaces participated and raised over $40,000. Funds raised through this initiative provide critical resources to DC’s civil legal aid network through grants, training and technical assistance, and the Foundation’s Loan Repayment Assistance Program.

This year, we aim to raise $50,000 from 40 justice-loving workplaces. Will you help us get there?
