Kick It Forward

Kick It Forward

The Kick It Forward project was born out of a desire to help fellow lawyers with financial difficulties. With the many economic challenges lawyers face today, it can be a struggle to build up and maintain a legal practice. That’s why the Young Lawyers Division launched Kick It Forward in 2015, with a mission to assist lawyers of all ages in need by paying their OBA dues while they get on their feet.

The program is funded by donations made through an election on your dues statement. By completing the Kick It Forward line, lawyers agree to pay $20 (or the amount of your choice) to the program in addition to annual dues.

Ways to Donate

Donate with your dues


You can donate online when paying your dues electronically, or complete the donation line on the paper dues statement and include payment with your mailed dues payment.

Mail a donation


Already paid your dues? No problem! You can mail a check payable to the OBA, P.O. Box 53036, Oklahoma City, OK 73152. Include program name on the lower left corner of the check.
