Thunderdome Class Sponsors


Sponsors of Thunderdome Tallahassee, Class 3
, will further establish the legacy of volunteer lawyers 
and community leaders offering low-income families help and hope for a more stable home.

At every level, our sponsors provide the needed funds to make this program a tradition in Tallahassee and a model for all Florida Legal Aid programs. Financial and in-kind gifts support program operations, materials, legal costs, events, and the work of our curriculum partners.
