Why Donate?

Indianapolis Legal Aid Society (“ILAS”) is the oldest and largest legal aid society in the State of Indiana, and one of the oldest in the country. It has served hundreds of thousands of low income Hoosiers since its establishment in 1941.

ILAS is a privately funded, non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation. Contributions to the Society are tax deductible. We are a United Way partner agency, and are funded entirely by private donations. We are not federally funded so we rely on people and business like you to provide our base funding.

We pride ourselves on being extremely efficient in providing legal services to our clients. Approximately 88% of our budget goes directly to the provision of legal services. Only 12% goes to overhead.  ILAS is the only oranization in central Indiana that provides legal access to the poor within 1-3 days.
