Everyone Has a Legacy: What Will Yours Be?

You have an extraordinary opportunity to make a significant difference in the lives of DC’s most vulnerable children, creating a lasting legacy that embodies your values.

By leaving Children’s Law Center a gift in your will, you have the ability to ensure that we will be there for District children when they are in crisis. And, you can help us prevent abuse and neglect for tens of thousands of other children – long into the future.
