Dear Mr. Baillie,

Thank you for the American College of Bankruptcy Foundation's $10,000 grant

to the Legal Aid Society. Your check, dated October 2, 2015, will enable Legal

Aid to provide meaningful legal assistance for clients who are facing bankruptcy

issues through expansion of our pro bono program.

Our Board and Staff are grateful to the American College of Bankruptcy

Foundation for its support.

Yours truly,

Mary Asbury

Executive Director

Legal Aid Society of Greater Cincinnati

Dear Mr. Baillie,

Thank you so much for the letter and check we received late last week informing us that the American College of Bankruptcy Foundation had approved the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center’s application for renewed funding to support our Bankruptcy trainings for pro bono attorneys. This new grant will be a tremendous help to the Pro Bono Center’s work to serve low income residents of Washington, DC in the coming year. We are very grateful for the Foundation’s longstanding confidence and support for our work!

Best regards,

Angela Boone

Development Manager

D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center
