Hurricane Katrina Legal Assistance Fund

The Virginia Bar Association has established a Hurricane Katrina Legal Assistance Fund so that lawyers there can provide needed legal services and restore their damaged offices and records in the wake of the disaster.

Contributions received by the fund will be sent as gifts to the state bars of Mississippi, Louisiana and Alabama, which will serve as clearinghouses for legal assistance efforts.

The relief fund has been established through the auspices of The Virginia Bar Association Foundation, a 501(c)(3) entity which conducts and supports charitable and educational purposes of The Virginia Bar Association.

Persons and organizations wishing to contribute to the disaster relief effort may send tax-deductible donations to

The Hurricane Katrina Legal Assistance Fund
c/o The Virginia Bar Association Foundation
701 East Franklin Street, Suite 1120
Richmond, VA 23219

Checks should be made out to "The Virginia Bar Association Foundation" with "Hurricane Katrina Legal Assistance Fund" in the memo line.
