The ABA Family Law Section Charitable Fund Billable Hour Campaign

This year we are kicking off a new “Hourly Billing Rate Fundraising Drive” campaign to raise money for the ABA Family Law Section Charitable Fund. We are asking each and every Section Member to donate the monetary equivalent of one (1) billable hour of your time to support the FLS Charitable Fund. If you do not charge hourly for your time, you can still make a donation in any dollar amount.
