Annual Giving Announces Our New Name: WLALA Foundation Charitable Fund
Our Purpose Remains the Same: To Help Deserving Students with Tuition and Public Interest Projects
We are excited to announce that Annual Giving has a new name —WLALA Foundation Charitable Fund. While our new name better reflects the Fund’s charitable purposes and distinguishes it from WLALA’s other fundraising efforts, our purpose remains the same. We are still relying on your generous contributions to award annual scholarships and public interest law fellowships to deserving law students. Over the past 13 years, we have raised more than $240,000 from nearly 300 individual donors. From these contributions, we have awarded 42 scholarships, 21 Public Interest Fellowships, and 6 WLALA/Inner City Law Center (“ICLC”) Fellowships. We have also supported the Beverly Reid O’Connell Power Lunches for high school students, the Harriett Buhai Center for Family Law, and the Downtown Women’s Center.
The Campaign for the WLALA Foundation Charitable Fund corresponds with the holiday season. It starts October 15th and ends January 31st. We have always aimed for 100% Board participation and in these challenging times encourage WLALA members and members of the community to join us too. The need is so much greater now. No donation is too small and all donations are greatly appreciated.
Please support deserving law students with their tuition and their public interest law work. Join us as a continuing donor or as a new donor. All contributions are tax-deductible to the extent provided by law. We hope you will join us!
Many thanks for your generosity,
Elizabeth Dyer and Susan Steinhauser
