You can help Legal Aid save affordable housing in our community

When 36 elderly and disabled individuals were threatened with homelessness because their landlord wouldn’t maintain their apartment building, Legal Aid intervened.

We joined with the City to file a lawsuit against the landlord and to get a receiver appointed. Our advocacy led to needed repairs being made, enabling these low-income, senior and disabled residents to remain in their affordable housing, confident that their apartments were now safe and sanitary.

We ask for your support to sustain our efforts to preserve affordable housing for vulnerable individuals and families.

OTHER WAYS TO CONTRIBUTE:

SEND US A CHECK:

If you would prefer to mail us a check, please make it payable to The Legal Aid Society of Greater Cincinnati.  Our address is:  The Legal Aid Society of Greater Cincinnati, 215 E. Ninth Street, Suite 200, Cincinnati, Ohio 45202.

USE YOUR IRA CHARITABLE ROLLOVER:

Consider using your Traditional IRA to make an Annual Charitable Gift.

If you are 70½ or older, this is a good opportunity to use an asset that otherwise would be taxed if you took a distribution.

Please direct the IRA administrator to make the transfer directly from your IRA to Legal Aid Society of Greater Cincinnati to avoid any tax issues.

Making the IRA charitable rollover gift to Legal Aid will count towards your minimum distribution for the year from the IRA.  But, it won’t count as income on your tax return.
