In the 25 years since its founding, Nassau County attorneys have raised more than $2 million for more than 100 local charitable causes.
Founded in 1899, the Nassau County Bar Association, with a membership of nearly 6,000 private and public attorneys, judges, legal educators and law students, is the largest suburban bar association in the country.
The WE CARE Fund, the NCBA’s charitable arm, assists children, the elderly and others in need, through countless projects and donations. For more information, or to apply for a grant, call 516-747-4070, email email@example.com, or visit www.nassaubar.org.
