Nonprofit Working Group

Attorneys and law students answer phones and log calls during the Nonpartisan Election Call Center at Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, LLP in 2016.

The Nonprofit Working Group was originally formed in 2002, to provide pro bono representation to community organizations. In 2009, the Task Force partnered with the Colorado Nonprofit Association and other organizations to provide direct representation to nonprofits in Colorado. While the Task Force initially assisted only nonprofit organizations that serve children or the indigent, in 2010, it broadened the scope of its work to include all nonprofits whose operating budgets do not permit them to retain legal counsel. In 2013, the Task Force agreed to also work with the Colorado Bar Association to provide expedited assistance to nonprofits adversely impacted by the floods. Since the matching program began, more than 350 nonprofits have been served.

Volunteers who sign up for the Nonprofit Working Group will receive periodic emails detailing the assistance needed by a nonprofit and will have the opportunity to volunteer to represent the nonprofit on the specific issue.
