Since 1993, past presidents of the D.C. Bar have hosted the Presidents Reception to honor the incoming president of the Bar and to support the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center, the largest provider of pro bono legal help in the District of Columbia. With the support of our generous donors and dedicated attorney volunteers, we operate award-winning legal clinics, projects, and resource centers that serve more than 20,000 individuals, nonprofits, and small businesses each year.

COVID-19 has changed the way the Pro Bono Center delivers its services, but not its commitment to helping D.C. residents in need. We remain hard at work through this health crisis by offering legal services through virtual clinics and resource centers, launching new legal assistance networks that ensure the courts remain accessible to people who cannot afford a lawyer, and giving nonprofits and small businesses the legal advice, training, and representation they need to survive the pandemic.

This year, the Presidents Reception honors incoming D.C. Bar President Chad T. Sarchio. For the safety of our donors and our staff, the Pro Bono Center will present the 2021 Presidents Reception virtually.

Contributions and pledges of $500 or more received by May 28 will be acknowledged at the virtual reception, on the D.C. Bar website, and in Washington Lawyer magazine (distributed to more than 100,000 members of the Bar).
