Reporting Pro Bono Hours

The NFPA Pro Bono Team has established an easy way for individual members to report both pro bono and community service hours electronically. Individuals simply send an email to to request the electronic form. For first requests, the individual should indicate whether they are a member of a local paralegal association or an NFPA individual sustaining member. Note that a new request/separate form is needed for acts of service for:  1) each different agency/organization during a calendar year; and 2) pro bono or community service (they cannot be reported together).

An example is volunteering for an agency where medical records were reviewed in 2011 over three non-consecutive days, as well as serving on the organization's annual fund raiser committee. The three days of pro bono service to review and summarize the medical records may be reported on thesame form since it was for the same agency; the community service portion for the same agency would need to be reported on a separate form.  

Please contribute to pro bono and community projects in your area.  If you'd like to share information on the pro bono projects you are working on, please send the information to
