TAS Gives Back Raises 50K in support of Pro Bono Canada
Thanks to you, the 2019/2020 TAS Gives Back raised $50,000 for Pro Bono Canada
, with funds raised via the Donate Your Rate™ campaign, EOT@Home 2020 and the YASC Trivia Challenge for Charity.
Founded in 2012, Pro Bono Canada supports and distributes funds to the six existing provincial pro bono organizations (Access Pro Bono British Columbia, Pro Bono Law Alberta, Pro Bono Law Saskatchewan, Pro Bono Ontario, Legal Information Society of Nova Scotia and Justice Pro Bono Quebec) using a formula that considers the number of people in each province who live in poverty. PBC holds the residue in trust for the future development of regional pro bono organizations in the remaining provinces and territories.
Since 2010, The Advocates' Society's TAS Gives Back campaign has raised over ½ million dollars for charitable causes through our Donate Your Rate™ campaign.
Donate Your Rate™
Our Donate Your Rate™ campaign asks TAS members to donate just 15 minutes of their billable rate. Our collective power has the ability to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars. All donors will receive a charitable tax receipt from Pro Bono Canada for the year in which their donation is received.
