Pro Bono Legal Assistance

The Arts & Cultural Council for Greater Rochester works with a number of area law firms to provide access to free legal assistance for eligible artists and non-profit organizations on a variety of issues.

Assistance is available on a wide range of issues including intellectual property, non-profit incorporation, federal tax-exempt status, contract review, and more.

Applicants for pro bono legal assistance must be current members of the Arts & Cultural Council for Greater Rochester.  Organizations seeking pro bono legal assistance must have a current-year operating budget of no greater than $600,000.  Individuals must have a household income no greater than 200% of the federal poverty guideline, as established by the United States Department of Health and Human Services.  For the most current federal poverty guidelines, please visit: http://aspe.hhs.gov/poverty/index.shtml and click the appropriate link.

The Arts & Cultural Council periodically offers legal issues workshops (fees may apply).

For more information, please call (585) 473-4000.

The programs and services of the Arts & Cultural Council for Greater Rochester are made possible in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
