The Pro Bono Committee is currently accepting nominations for the 2024 Pro Bono Award

The mission of the Oregon State Bar Taxation Section Pro Bono Committee is to increase access to quality tax-related legal services for underserved taxpayers by encouraging and facilitating pro bono work by section members and other tax professionals in Oregon, advocating for policies that would reduce the unmet need for tax professional services in Oregon, and providing grant funds to support efforts by others to increase access to tax-related legal services.

The Pro Bono Award recognizes the nominee that has demonstrated a strong commitment to providing excellent legal services to Oregon’s low income taxpayers.  Criteria include history of serving as a pro bono attorney, efforts to mentor or train new volunteers, and creating a culture of pro bono work in our legal community.

The award was previously presented in 2018 to Dan Eller. The past recipient is also listed on the taxation web site here: Future recipients will be listed there as well!

Eligibility: Any attorney who is a member in good standing of the OSB Taxation Section is eligible to receive the award. Because the award is given by the OSB Taxation Section Pro Bono Committee, the attorney’s pro bono efforts must be related to the practice of tax law.

Nominations: Nominations must be in writing and should provide a brief description of the nominee’s qualification for the award. All nominations must include the name and contact information for both the nominee and the nominating person, as well as an explanation of why the nominating person believes that the nominee deserves the award.  Please submit your nomination by email to [email protected] before July 31, 2024.

Thank you!
