Donate to CLS

Picture of some former clients

Columbia Legal Services does not charge for our work, as our clients are unable to pay attorney fees.  When our clients win a case, we sometimes receive attorney fees from opposing parties as required by law. However, we do not receive fees in most cases. CLS depends on grants and donations to sustain our work.

Your contribution will ensure that no vulnerable population is left to ‘fall through the cracks’ of our justice system. Please consider making a donation to aid us in continuing our work.


Members of the Washington State Bar - and others - can support our work with a donation to the Legal Foundation of Washington's Campaign for Equal Justice. The Legal Foundation of Washington's support for more than 20 civil legal aid organizations across Washington, including Columbia Legal Services, helps make access to the justice system a reality for everyone. 


Access to the justice system should be a reality for everyone - not just for those who can afford a lawyer. Legal Aid for Washington Fund’s (LAW Fund) Campaign for Equal Justice raises charitable support for more than 20 civil legal aid programs providing free legal assistance to those in need who are facing urgent civil (non-criminal) legal problems across Washington state. - See more at:
