Why Donate to the NACC?
Child abuse and juvenile cases are handled in the court system. Neither federal, state, nor local governments ensure that children and families are well represented. And because the court system involves an adversarial process that depends on quality legal representation, parties to court proceedings who are not represented do not usually fare well. Now, imagine you’re an abused and frightened child about to enter a courtroom where the outcome may quite literally be a matter of life and death. How can we expect these children to speak for themselves in a court system that’s too complicated for most well-educated adults?
As the nation’s only charity dedicated specifically to enhancing legal representation in child welfare and juvenile justice cases, the National Association of Counsel for Children gives a voice to voiceless children. Our membership consists of lawyers, physicians, therapists, social workers, and educators who have dedicated their professional lives to advocating for the rights of children. By making a tax-deductible, charitable donation to our organization - whether through our General Fund or Amicus Fund - you’re helping us make the world a better place for children to live.

General Fund » Donate OnlineYour donation to the NACC General Fund helps us continue to offer high-quality training to child welfare attorneys and caseworkers; certify lawyers through our ABA-accredited certification program; provide support and resources to the lawyers, doctors, social workers, therapists, and educators that make up our membership; and serve as a voice in the creation of new laws and policies that raise the quality of representation for parties in the child welfare and juvenile justice systems.
Amicus Fund » Donate OnlineEvery day, the NACC strives to protect the rights of children and families in the child welfare and juvenile justice systems. One of the ways we do this is by filing or participating in amicus curiae, or “friend of the court,” briefs in cases around the country that raise important issues concerning children and families. By contributing to the NACC Amicus Fund you’re directly supporting our efforts in this area of the law.
