Ways to Give


We at Land of Lincoln are immensely proud of the high-quality services we provide to the most vulnerable in our communities, but in our 65 county area there are over 400,000 impoverished people.  Even with our dedicated and talented staff and a strong footing in the legal community, the need for legal services far exceeds our resources.  Through your generous donation, you will provide low-income and senior residents of central and southern Illinois with high-quality civil legal services in order to help us obtain and maintain their basic human needs.  Below is a list of the different ways that you can give:
