2020 Harvest Campaign

2020 Harvest Campaign

In uncertain times, the members of the Houston Bar Association have always stepped up to help their fellow Houstonians. Many of our neighbors are out of work or homeless, or face family issues exacerbated by stay-home conditions. Thank you for your membership, your commitment to our profession, and your concern for our community.

Now, more than ever, our community needs your help to provide legal advice and representation for those who cannot afford the equal justice that is a mission of this association and its ancillary organizations, particularly the Houston Volunteers Lawyers and the Houston Bar Foundation.

We will not be able to host our fall Harvest Celebration this year because of the pandemic, but Houston Bar Foundation funding for the pro bono work of our Houston Volunteer Lawyers is crucial. We will instead have a Harvest Campaign, and we ask our members, law firms and legal departments to continue to support HVL's work.

The deadline for inclusion in the Houston Chronicle ad has passed, but we are still happily accepting donations.

Peer-to-Peer Giving

This year, we are asking you to encourage individual peer-to peer support for the Harvest Campaign. Here is how your organization can participate:

  1. Identify a colleague or group of colleagues within your organization to work with the Harvest Campaign Chairs to spearhead the 2020 peer-to-peer Harvest Campaign effort to solicit individual donations. Email HVL Executive Director Anne Chandler to ask questions or let us know you would like to participate.
  2. Set an internal fundraising goal. Perhaps you believe it is reasonable to ask those at your firm to donate $100 of their personal funds to support HVL’s effort to assist as many Houstonians as possible during this historic pandemic. If your firm has roughly 50 attorneys, you could set a goal of $5,000 for your firm’s peer-to peer 2020 Harvest Campaign effort. No individual Harvest Campaign gift is too small. Everyone in your firm is encouraged to participate as we are all part of the legal community.
  3. Solicit donations between October 19 and November 13, 2020, using emails from the Harvest Campaign Chairs. Click here to download the official 2020 Harvest Campaign Peer-to-Peer Fundraising Toolkit via DropBox, which includes a customizable letter and thermometer template.

Thank you for your support.
