Champions for Children

Recognizing our most generous legal and corporate partners.

The Champions for Children Campaign is an annual fundraising competition spearhead by the Children’s Law Center’s Advisory Board, which includes over 30 up-and-coming leaders at law firms and corporations within DC. These leaders advance the well-being of children and gain valuable business development experience by promoting pro bono service and advocating for greater giving within their firms to support children.

If you work at an organization represented on the advisory board, any donation that you give to Children’s Law Center during the calendar year (e.g., Benefit sponsorship, year-end contribution, donation in honor of a loved one) counts towards your organization’s overall Champions for Children total.  We total up all individual and corporate donations for the year and announce the winners in the spring. Winners receive recognition in our annual report and website, are announced to the media, and more.

And most importantly, because of your support through the campaign, many more of DC’s vulnerable children will have legal advocates in their corner as they recover from abuse and neglect, find loving homes, and overcome barriers to their special education or health needs.

Help your organization become our next Champion for Children by donating to Children’s Law Center today.
