Legacy Giving

Smiling client and attorney

Bring Something Special to the World

Make a gift through your estate that costs nothing during your lifetime.

Make equal access to justice a piece of your legacy. You can create a thoughtful planned gift that will benefit Bay Area Legal Services now and for years to come.

Legacy giving can be as simple as including a bequest in your will or adding Bay Area Legal as a beneficiary on a life insurance policy or retirement asset. By doing so, you will become a member of Bay Area Legal’s Legacy for Justice Society and ensure justice to those in need for years to come.

For more information, contact our Development office at 813-232-1222 ext. 156 or at development@bals.org.

If you have already added us to your estate plan, please notify us so we may welcome you as a member of our Legacy for Justice Society.
