Focusing on a range of issues unique to the non-profit sector

October is Pro Bono Month

Each year Governor Deval Patrick issues a proclamation naming October Pro Bono Month (click here for last year’s version). At the Boston Bar Association, pro bono and public service activity is a priority, which is why we compiled a calendar (with help from our Boston Bar Foundation Grantees) of everything going on this October. For more information, contact Public Service Programs Coordinator Katie D'Angelo atkdangelo@bostonbar.org
