It’s Home Court season!

Each day the Washington Legal Clinic for the Homeless community works toward our vision of a just and inclusive community for all residents of the District of Columbia, where housing is a human right and where every individual and family has equal access to the resources they need to thrive. In our 37 year journey toward housing justice for D.C., the Legal Clinic has relied on private donations – never public funding – in order to advocate most effectively for our clients and for the systemic reforms that best serve our client community, and in this, the generous and steadfast support we receive from individuals and the D.C. law firm community is paramount.

Each year during Home Court season we call upon friends of the Legal Clinic to continue to be part of this important work, and each year we are overwhelmed by the generosity and dedication in your response. This 37th Home Court season we invite you to learn a little bit about the history of this unique effort, at the heart of which is a longstanding Georgetown University Law Center tradition of students organizing the annual charity basketball game ‘Home Court’ to benefit the work of the Legal Clinic. As students work to put together a fantastic event, the Legal Clinic is in the midst of our annual Home Court appeal – the centerpiece of our fundraising efforts. We hope you can join us at this year’s game day on March 28, support our work with a donation, and spread the word about the Legal Clinic so that we enter this next year stronger than ever as we work together toward on this vital mission.

In addition to seeking contributions from individuals and law firms, our Home Court fundraising season includes the annual March Mania peer-to-peer fundraising campaign, which was launched in 2022 and became an instant success. March Mania is an individual contributions campaign in which staff and attorneys at participating law firms and organizations take part in a friendly March Madness™ themed competition to raise general support funds for the Washington Legal Clinic for the Homeless.

March Mania 2023 brought in over $124,000 in funds for the Legal Clinic with the amazing participation of 15 law firms. The Legal Clinic would be honored to have your firm form a March Mania team to help make this year’s Home Court campaign a resounding success and keep the work of the organization going strong.
