Ventura County Legal Services, Inc.

Ventura County's Premier Pro Bono Legal Services Project


All attorneys, paralegals, and law clerks rendering services on behalf of VCLS do so without compensation.  Our organization does have some overhead, which is currently being funded by donations from our founders.

But here is why we need money:

Many, but not all, of our clients qualify for court fee-waivers, which means that a substantial number of our matters require the payment of court costs.  In addition, most of our clients have litigation costs for which funding is needed.  These include process server costs, deposition costs, and investigator costs.  Consider making a tax-deductible donation to VCLS so that our clients have the litigation tools they need, and to help us serve as many eligible people as possible.  Access to justice reduces poverty.

Ventura County Legal Services, Inc., is a California nonprofit public benefit corporation, exempt from federal income tax under Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(3) and exempt from California income tax under Revenue and Taxation Code section 23701d.  As such, donations are tax deductible as allowed by law.  VCLS's taxpayer identification number is 47-1376076.
