Your Support Matters
Charleston Pro Bono Legal Services provides civil legal aid to eligible low-income residents of Charleston County at no cost to the clients. We are able to do this through various government and foundation grant awards, in addition to the incredible support of the Charleston legal community. Through donations and volunteer services, as well as through engagement in CPB sponsored events like Art on the Beach and our upcoming annual auction, we are able to continue our important work. We field thousands of requests for services and help hundreds in our community every year. We are currently in a fundraising campaign called “50 For 50” to raise $50,000 to celebrate 50 years of public service. Please help us continue to provide essential legal services and contribute today!
