The original funding for MassProBono came from a Technology Initiative Grant (TIG) awarded by the Legal Services Corporation (LSC) to the Volunteer Lawyers Project of the Boston Bar Association (VLP). VLP contracted with Pro Bono Net, a nonprofit that hosts legal aid and pro bono websites throughout the U.S. and Canada, and the Massachusetts Legal Aid Websites Project, which is housed at the MA Law Reform Institute and coordinates MassLegalServices and MassLegalHelp.
MassProBono is free to individual volunteers and to pro bono organizations and programs. As you might expect, there are ongoing expenses involved in operating MassProBono. If you wish to contribute toward these expenses, please email us.
