Pro Bono Partnership Presentation in New Britain

New Britain, Conn., January 15, 2020 – As part of its Capacity Building Initiative which provides training and other resources to local non-profits to increase and strengthen their organizational capacity, the Community Foundation of Greater New Britain is hosting an informational breakfast presentation featuring the Pro Bono Partnership, which provides free transactional and business legal services to non-profit organizations.

On Wednesday, February 5, staff and board members of nonprofits are welcome to attend a breakfast presentation at the Fireside Room of First Congregational Church (830 Corbin Ave, New Britain, CT 06052) from 8:30 am to 10:00 am to learn about the services available to their organizations.

Based in Hartford, Pro Bono Partnership works with 1,400 volunteer lawyers from major corporations and law firms to help nonprofit clients achieve their goals, avoid risk, and better serve their constituencies. Pro Bono Partnership attorneys specialize in laws affecting nonprofits. Their process is highly collaborative, and every client works directly with a staff attorney who helps the nonprofit prioritize its legal needs and access expert legal counsel on a wide range of matters including compliance, corporate structure and governance, employment and volunteer issues, fundraising/charitable solicitation laws, and merger/collaboration.

Joeline Wruck, Director of Community Initiatives & Program Services at the Foundation said, “As part of our Capacity Building Initiative, we are excited to introduce this resource to local nonprofits. The services provided by Pro Bono Legal Partnership are invaluable, especially since the cost for legal services can be cost prohibitive.”

If you would like to attend the breakfast presentation to discover what services are available to your organization, please RSVP to Joeline Wruck at 860-229-6018, x307 or at
