WLALA Foundation Charitable Fund

Contribute to the WLALA Foundation Charitable Fund to Help Sow Seeds of Justice

The Foundation’s annual giving campaign – the WLALA Foundation Charitable Fund – runs every year from mid-September to the end of January. The Charitable Fund increases WLALA’s capacity to support its philanthropic activities.

Since its inception, the WLALA Foundation has awarded over half a million dollars to law students with a demonstrated commitment to advancing WLALA’s mission of advocating for principles of fairness and equality and improving the status of women by supporting their exercise of equal rights, equal representation and reproductive choice.

In just the past 15 years, the Foundation has:

  • awarded tuition scholarships to 59 law students committed to fighting for social justice, equality and inclusion and to issues affecting women, children, minorities, or other historically marginalized groups;
  • funded 29 Fran Kandel Public Interest Fellowships, enabling law students to work with an organization, or individually, to develop and implement a project in the field of public interest law; and
  • funded 13 Inner City Law Center Fellowships to work with the Inner City Law Center’s Homeless Veterans Project focusing on issues affecting women veterans, including clients who have been victims of military sexual trauma.
  • In addition, funds from the Foundation Charitable Fund are used support the Harriett Buhai Center for Family Law, the Downtown Women’s Center, and the Power Lunch Program.

The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization. All contributions are tax deductible to the extent provided by law.
