Indiana Free Legal Answers
This holiday season, visit Indiana Free Legal Answers and register as a pro bono attorney to answer legal questions from low-income Hoosiers anytime, anywhere. Indiana Free Legal Answers is a short-term commitment, fits within your schedule, and is a source of pro bono hours, which are reportable on your annual Indiana Supreme Court attorney registration.
Gratitude Event
Please save the date of Thursday, January 28 from 4:30-5:30 pm ET for the Foundation's first virtual gratitude event. This will take the place of the annual awards dinner where we recognize our sponsors and Keystone Society members and will feature several beneficiaries of the Foundation's mission.
Keystone Society
"During the pandemic, We the People was one of the few things that got me to think of something rather than just the chaos that surrounded us. This was a great experience and something I will never forget... We the People will be a memory that will prolong as I progress to become a lawyer someday. I hope you have realized you lit a fire in my generation that we do have entitlement to speak about our political beliefs." - Alben Marco, St. Richard's Episcopal School

Please consider a gift that is meaningful to you by December 31 to help educate more students in civics. There are various levels of giving and associated benefits to recognize donors. Our highest level of donor recognition is the Keystone Society which recognizes donors who contribute $1,000 or more annually. Even if you are not able to give at the level of the Keystone Society, a gift at any amount is greatly appreciated.
