“Iris wanted to help create a bridge to bring both groups together," said Adi Elliott, vice president of marketing at Iris Data Services.
Kansas City, Missouri (PRWEB) March 17, 2015
Iris Data Services, the leader in eDiscovery managed services, today announced the launch of their new online service, Lawyer | Nonprofit Connect, a website that makes it easy for lawyers and nonprofits to find one another.
Iris Data Services saw the need for both legal and nonprofit communities to network with one another, so the company created LawyerNonprofitConnect.com to help bridge the gap.
The site works by matching the mission of the nonprofit to the interests of the lawyer – much like a dating site – but at absolutely no charge. Nonprofit executives complete a profile, sharing the organization’s mission, programs, and service area – anything that helps people understand what the organization does. Attorneys looking to volunteer can do the same, filling out a profile and populating content in order to attract potential matches. The site will then match attorneys and nonprofits that share overlapping goals and interests.
“Attorneys often look for volunteer opportunities to provide pro bono legal services, while nonprofits look for attorneys to join their boards,” said Adi Elliott, vice president of marketing at Iris Data Services. “Iris wanted to help create a bridge to bring both groups together.”
Providing legal services to nonprofit organizations is an excellent way for lawyers to make a significant difference in their communities. Nonprofit organizations often need legal expertise, but want to find attorneys that have both the heart for the cause and the legal skills needed to help further their missions.
