Pro Bono Receives Oswald Grant

Toledo Community Foundation’s Oswald Supporting Organization Award Grant to Pro Bono Legal Services Program Helps Kick Off Annual Campaign

The Board of Trustees of the Oswald Supporting Organization of the Toledo Community Foundation has approved a grant for the Toledo Bar Association Pro Bono Legal Services Program in the amount of $10,000. These funds will be used for operating support.
 
“The Pro Bono Program provides free legal support for a range of clients who would not be able to afford legal assistance,” explains director Pat Intagliata. “These clients typically fall between the cracks of other available social services.” To meet the needs of the community, Intagliata coordinates several “pro se” programs that teach clients how to file legal petitions for themselves. She also provides volunteer attorneys for clients who need representation in court.
