Empower Change and Unlock Justice for All on Giving Tuesday

Giving TuesdayIn a nation where one in three Americans is eligible for legal aid, the stark reality is that two out of three individuals seeking assistance are turned away due to funding constraints. As we approach Giving Tuesday on November 28, we invite you to be the catalyst for change. Your investment in New Mexico Legal Aid (NMLA) reaches the roots of poverty, enabling thousands of New Mexicans to build a more secure and stable future.

What is Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement that encourages people to give back to their communities. It follows the Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping frenzy, redirecting the focus to philanthropy and making a positive impact on the world.

This day serves as a crucial reminder of the power of collective action. It highlights the spirit of generosity and showcases the positive change that can be brought about when individuals, organizations, and communities come together to support meaningful causes.

How Your Donation Matters

Civil legal aid is a cornerstone of equal justice in America. Your donation to NMLA empowers ordinary Americans facing challenges such as escaping an abusive partner, preventing wrongful foreclosure, and defending against fraudulent debt collectors. Unfortunately, many individuals must navigate these legal battles without the aid of legal professionals due to limited resources.

Your support on Giving Tuesday has a profound impact, helping to bridge the justice gap. By contributing to NMLA, you provide vital resources that allow the organization to offer legal assistance to those who would otherwise go unrepresented. Your generosity facilitates access to justice, offering a lifeline to individuals and families navigating complex legal issues.

Double Your Impact!

Equal Access to Justice needs your help to unlock $25,000 in matching funds before November 30th! To help meet the skyrocketing need for legal aid in our state, Singleton Schreiber, along with New Mexico managing partner, Brian Colón, have generously made a $25,000 Matching Challenge. Your gift to Equal Access to Justice will have twice the impact and raise critical funding for civil legal services in NM.

Donate before November 30th! Whether you give via United Way, an IRA, DAF, or online HERE – your gift matters!

Gifts to Equal Access to Justice are 100% tax-deductible and a perfect way to fulfill your pro-bono & professional obligations by supporting civil legal services. 

How We are Participating in Giving Tuesday

Our commitment to justice goes beyond advocacy. Throughout the month, NMLA staff members are actively participating in the United Way Giving Campaign, making personal donations to support the United Way of Central New Mexico. This internal initiative underscores our dedication to generosity and community support.
