CrowdJustice helps your clients raise funds for legal action
What lawyers say
CrowdJustice was the biggest fundraising campaign we’ve ever had – over 1,000 donors and $50,000 raised. It was a major success for us, and among the first examples in the United States of how CrowdJustice can help non-profits power impactful action in the courts.
We were absolutely thrilled when we heard about CrowdJustice. The financial support and the visibility that the platform brought to our case made a difference. The access to justice community in the U.S. has a powerful new ally.

How it works
Donation-based crowdfunding enables your client to raise funds and get community support for their case. There is no up-front cost, and the client drives the process:
1 Tell your client
Tell your client about CrowdJustice by simply sending them a link to our website. We’ll handle everything from here, helping them to build a crowdfunding page.
2 Your client raises funds
Your client mobilises their network to donate to their case. We will give them access to our dedicated support team, tools and guidance to boost their efforts.
3 Funds are transferred
Once your client hits their fundraising target, funds are transferred directly to your client trust account.
