2020 Harvest Campaign
Did you know that every single dollar of the net proceeds raised in the Houston Bar Foundation's Harvest Campaign goes to Houston Volunteer Lawyers? The purpose of the campaign is to fund programming at HVL. None of the amount of the net proceeds are spent at the Houston Bar Association or the Houston Bar Foundation. 

Your contribution to the Harvest Campaign enables HVL to continue to significantly impact people's lives.

If you have already contributed to the 2020 Harvest Campaign, thank you. If you have not yet had a chance to support this Campaign, please  click here to contribute online.
