WILL - A - THON
The Fort Bend County Bar Association already sponsors an Annual Will-a-Thon, whereby low-income Fort Bend County senior citizens are eligible for participation.
A simple Will, Medical Power of Attorney, Declaration of Guardian in the Event of Later Incompetence, and Physicians Directive (Living Will) are drafted by volunteer attorneys and executed for each participant. FBLC encourages social service organizations to sponsor will clinics by recruiting low-income seniors and providing a convenient location. As traveling is so often a barrier to services, FBLC will continue to sponsor this outreach service in our community.
Fort Bend Lawyers Care depends upon the generous support of corporate and individual sponsors. FBLC welcomes your support as we provide much needed hope to those in need. Fort Bend Lawyers Care is a non-profit corporation, and all donations to FBLC are tax-deductible. With your help, FBLC can assist numerous low-income individuals each year with needed legal assistance by coordinating matches with volunteer attorneys in the Fort Bend County area.

A gift to Fort Bend Lawyers Care is an investment in our community.
