A lawyer should aspire to render pro bono legal services. In fulfilling this responsibility, the lawyer should:
(1) delivery of legal services at no fee or substantially reduced fee to individuals, groups or organizations seeking to secure or protect civil rights, civil liberties or public rights, or charitable, religious, civic, community, governmental and educational organizations in matters in furtherance of their organizational purposes, where the payment of standard legal fees would significantly deplete the organization's economic resources or would be otherwise inappropriate;
In addition, a lawyer should voluntarily contribute financial support to organizations that provide legal services to persons of limited means.
