Spring Appeal Matching Grant

We have received a $50,000 matching gift from an anonymous donor through the Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region that will double your contribution to supporting our work.

Sadly, the need for civil legal help for immigrants and others who are underserved in our community continues to rise. We are so grateful that we have received this matching gift as these funds and all matching donations will go to support our immigration program and related services.

Your contributions allow us to help anyone in need of assistance, regardless of immigration status. Support for this effort also frees up funds for our other vital programs, including our outreach efforts and assistance to victims of abuse. To make a donation toward this matching grant, please go to our website at or gifts can be made by mail to The Legal Project, 24 Aviation Road, Suite 101, Albany, NY 12205. Thank you for helping us to make a difference in the lives of our friends and neighbors. Your support means so much!
