Lincoln Derr is proud to be a sponsor of Best Buddies North Carolina and The 2020 Best Buddies Virtual Friendship Walk. The Best Buddies Friendship Walk is the number one walk in the country raising awareness and funds to support inclusion for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).
A justice system organization (non-profit) formed in 2004 by a group of civic leaders, lawyers, business owners and concerned citizens in North Carolina who understand the rule of law is the bedrock of our civilized society, that a healthy court system is critical to safeguarding this foundation and that the effective and efficient administration of justice is essential to a strong, prosperous and vibrant community.

Hands for Holly Fund
On July 1st, 2016, sweet 14-year-old Holly Wade lost her 7 month battle with brain cancer. Before her death, Holly and her mother Christine co-founded the Hands for Holly Fund. Holly saw first hand from her long stay in the hospital how many families struggled to care for their child and keep up with everyday expenses and wanted to help.
Hands for Holly Memorial Fund’s mission is to provide financial assistance to families in need who are caring for a child with cancer. They pay essential expenses (i.e. mortgage, utilities, transportation, etc.) to alleviate financial stress and give families the ability to focus on accessing care, getting well, and being at their child’s bedside when they need them the most.

Pro Bono Organizations We Support
“Performing pro bono work is a great way for attorneys to renew their vigor for the practice of law, and find gratification in knowing they have made a difference in someone’s life.” – Jeremy Sugg
North Carolina Bar Foundation (“NCBF”)
The North Carolina Bar Foundation (“NCBF”) has a number of programs that strive to help fill the justice gap and facilitate equal access to justice for people living in North Carolina. Our attorneys participate in the 4ALL Statewide Service Day & Free Legal Answers (”FLA”) programs. With a growing decline in funding for legal aid organizations, these NCBF programs are essential to supporting the legal needs that abound throughout our state.
Lawyer on the Line
There is no easier way to perform pro bono work than taking calls for Legal Aid of North Carolina through its “Lawyer on the Line” program. In partnership with the North Carolina Bar Association Foundation, Legal Aid Lawyers on the Line program provides legal advice to people with few other options. Thousands of clients benefit from this service every year.
