Wagner Reese "2015 Matching Gift Challenge!"
The charity we support this year is the Neighborhood Christian Legal Clinic (NCLC), a local non-profit 501(c)(3) that provides free legal representation and education to low income and immigrant families throughout Indianapolis. A glimpse into the organization’s storied history can be viewed by visiting the NCLC timeline. In 2015 alone, the clinic represented over 10,000 Hoosiers of lesser means with their legal issues.
Beginning the week of Thanksgiving through Christmas day 2015, Wagner Reese will match every donation made by any law firm, staff or lawyer to the NCLC dollar for dollar until a grand total of $10,000 has been reached!
Many attorneys and firms have already given generously of their time, talent and/or treasure. And for this, we thank you. This marks the 3rd year Wagner Reese has worked with the NCLC to help further their biblical mission of providing pro-bono legal services to those who would otherwise be without legal representation. Serving justice, more than 150 lawyers volunteered their time at the Clinic last year! More than 50 paralegals and law students did, too. Maybe this year, you’d rather donate of your treasure along with us?
If you’d like to accept our challenge and make Wagner Reese pay, you can do so by visiting the NCLC’s donation page. When making your donation to the NCLC, please indicate that it is to be applied toward the Wagner Reese Matching Gift Challenge. Thank you!
Chris Purnell: Hi, I’m Chris Purnell with the Neighborhood Christian Legal Clinic. During this season of giving, we’d like to give people the opportunity to partner with the Neighborhood Christian Legal Clinic in us providing justice for those who cannot afford legal services. This year, a local law firm, Wagner Reese, has decided to be very generous, and I’ll allow Jason Reese to tell us more about that.
Jason Reese: Hi, our firm decided that this year, during the month of Thanksgiving, we were going to try to do a double match campaign. What that means is any law firm that donates any type of money between now and Christmas, we will match up to $10,000 in total. Some of you can give your time and have, over 150 lawyers volunteered last year. We’re asking if you can’t give your time to give your money. Thanks for considering a donation to the Neighborhood Christian Legal Clinic, you can go to the website.
