WE CARE FUND
The WE CARE Fund is the nationally-recognized charitable arm of the Nassau County Bar Association. Founded in 1988 by NCBA Past President Stephen Gassman, WE CARE funds are raised by the legal profession and the community at large. The money is distributed through charitable grants to improve the quality of life for children, the elderly and others in need throughout Nassau County.
Nurtured by the tireless efforts of lawyers and judges, the WE CARE program has matured into a nationally recognized model for similar programs instituted by other bar groups. With the financial support and personal effort of so many, WE CARE has been able to serve the community in myriad ways.
Groups of deserving children are treated to this classic professional baseball game, giving them an opportunity of a lifetime! Game tickets are purchased and donated through the generosity of lawyers and judges.
Local seniors who find themselves without close family on Thanksgiving are treated to a luncheon with all the trimmings at Domus, served by members of the Bar Association and their families. Food is provided courtesy of NCBA’s in-house caterer.
