Public Interest Law Initiative

Giving Circle Members

PILI is incredibly grateful for the generosity and dedication of these founding members of our Giving Circles, donors who embrace our mission and take a personal interest in our success. Their commitment to PILI helps us cultivate a lifelong commitment to public interest law among law students and lawyers, so that together we can better meet the legal needs of individuals and families living in poverty in Illinois.
