Every year Coast to Coast Legal Aid of South Florida provides critical legal assistance to thousands of low-income residents of Broward County who could otherwise not afford it. Still, 85% of those in need of legal assistance go unserved due to a lack of funding and resources. Donations from members and caring individuals in the community play a major role in our work assisting victims of domestic violence, human trafficking, and families and seniors in need of public assistance or facing foreclosure.
Donate securely online – your tax-deductible gift will help Broward County’s underserved communities get the free civil legal services they so desperately need!
Impact people’s lives positively alongside
a reputable and beloved organization
Help survivors of domestic violence,
seniors, and Veterans
Donor recognition on our website, social
media, and at legal community events
“We know that there are never going to be enough lawyers, and we do not have enough money to serve everyone with a legal issue. However, I am working hard to be one of the agents of rapid, effective, and high impact change. I have gained many personal benefits from doing pro bono work, but most importantly, doing this work reminds me why I chose to be a lawyer in the first place. The personal reward gained from donating my time and money far outweighs any amount I could ever give.”

Cy Pres Awards
In class action lawsuits a fund is created for payment of damages. After class members’ claims are paid, there often are residual funds remaining. Under the doctrine of Cy Pres, judges and class counsel can recommend that residual funds be awarded to fund legal service programs.
