PBPO Awarded $235,000 Grant to Fund Dayton Program
We are thrilled to share that Pro Bono Partnership of Ohio (PBPO) has been awarded a $235,000 grant from the Dayton Legal Heritage Foundation of The Dayton Foundation! The grant, the largest in our history, will be used over the next three years to expand our capacity to engage attorney volunteers to meet the business legal needs of Dayton area nonprofit organizations.
“The generosity of the Dayton Legal Heritage Foundation will allow us to serve countless members of the Dayton community in need,” said Breck Weigel, President of the PBPO Board of Directors. “PBPO’s business-related legal services and education programs ensure that nonprofits have a strong business legal foundation, and we’re excited to expand our offerings to new partners across the city.”
“We are pleased to support Pro Bono Partnership of Ohio,” stated Gordon Arnold, President of the Dayton Legal Heritage Foundation. “The Dayton Legal Heritage Foundation serves to benefit Greater Dayton citizens by awarding grants to nonprofits that improve the practice of law and elevate awareness of the legal and justice systems. By engaging attorney volunteers to help nonprofits in need, PBPO does just that.”
Powered by attorney volunteers, PBPO strengthens our community by providing free business legal services and education to nonprofits. With the support of the Dayton Legal Heritage Foundation, we are thrilled to provide an even broader reach to attorney volunteers and nonprofits in the Miami Valley. In this way, local nonprofit leaders will be able to focus on what they do best – making a deep impact on the communities and people they serve.
