Ways to Give

Your support of ILAP promotes justice by ensuring that we are able to educate and assist individuals who would otherwise be unable to exercise their rights. ILAP's work enables vulnerable immigrants to stabilize and advance their immigration status so that they can work, go to school, stay healthy and contribute fully to their Maine communities for generations to come. ILAP is not a government-funded agency, and relies on grants from private foundations and individual donations to fund our programs.

Support ILAP

The India Street Society


To sustain and enhance ILAP in its mission, and to celebrate the remarkable commitment and generosity of our leading donors, ILAP established the India Street Society, an informal association of individuals and families who, through their annual giving, provide crucial financial leadership in helping ILAP accomplish its mission.

Individuals who donate $300 or more within one calendar year are automatically granted membership into the India Street Society.

ILAP presents a thank you event for our major donors, the India Street Society, each fall by invitation.

Levels of Giving:
$300 - Member
$500 - $999 - Silver Circle
$1000 - $2499 - Gold Circle
$2500 and up - Platinum Circle
