LawLinks: Bayer Center


For Nonprofits

The Bayer Center for Nonprofit Management is partnering with the Allegheny County Bar Association & the Pro-Bono Partnership to provide legal assistance to local nonprofits. Please note that the Bayer Center provides a referral service, not direct legal advice, nor can we offer assistance in cases that involve litigation.

To be eligible for LawLinks, your organization must:

  • Be a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit 
  • Have a budget of less than $1 million 
  • Reside in Allegheny County 

Questions most frequently revolve around human resources, real estate, taxation, tax-exempt status, bylaws and document review. There is a $50 application fee for this program. To pay your fee, please register for LawLinks at
