Donations & Support

Annual Campaign

As a non-profit charitable organization, the Society depends on public and private funds to support its services.

Since its founding in 1949, private donations have helped sustain the Legal Aid Society in its effort to ensure that no one in Onondaga County shall be denied justice because of a lack of means.

Hiscock Legal Aid Society conducts an Annual Campaign to raise funds to support its work.

Members’ names are published in an Annual Campaign Directory.

The Legacy Society

To honor the generous planned gifts pledged to Hiscock Legal Aid Society (“HLAS”), but received at the end of the donor’s life, HLAS has established a Legacy Society that recognizes and honors those individuals who have planned to benefit HLAS at some time in the future.
