Associates Campaign Success Breaks All Records

The 2013 Associates Campaign raised nearly $85,000 for legal aid during the month of April. This associate-led effort raised 70 percent more than last year by recruiting 795 members of the legal community to help ensure access to civil justice for those who might otherwise go without.

A record number of 43 firms participated in this year’s Associates Campaign, 19 of which had 100 percent participation amongst their associates. The success in growing this year’s four-week Campaign is largely attributed to the creation of the Legal Aid Foundation’s Associates Advisory Board last fall. This new Board played an instrumental role in recruiting efforts and in providing Campaign leadership.

The Associates Campaign Recognition Event was held on Wednesday, May 8th at the Colorado Bar Association (1900 Grant Street, 9th Floor). Colorado Court of Appeals Judges Janice Davidson, Rich Gabriel, Gale Miller and Dan Taubman presented the awards and recognized all participants.
