According to a report, Kelley Drye ranked in the top 10 among New York firms for total contributions to this year's Legal Aid Society Associates' Campaign. The average contribution by a Kelley Drye associate was over $250, which was considerably higher than the average contribution for participating associates across the city.
The Associates' Campaign is an annual fundraiser that collects contributions from associates at New York City firms in support of the Legal Aid Society's Civil Division, which provides legal representation on a wide variety of issues, including housing and homelessness prevention, family law and domestic violence, immigration and welfare. The Legal Aid Society relies heavily on contributions from the private sector, and Associates' Campaign is an important part of the Society's fundraising efforts. This year's Campaign raised over half a million dollars.
