The Board met during September 2019 to discuss grant applications for 2020. As a result of that discussion, the foundation made grants to a number of organizations. See our list of 2020 grants. The Board meets every September to choose its grantees for the succeeding year. Read more.
The process for applying for grants is explained on our Applications page. The grant application must identify the specific legal matter for which assistance is sought. Only legal matters that address systemic legal problems that will have a high impact on a specific area of the law will be considered. Apply for grants here.
