Public Interest Law Foundation funds legal services
The Public Interest Law Foundation’s Community Grants Program will award grants to organizations providing legal services to communities in need. The grant program is guided by PILF’s commitment to supporting public-interest activities, including, but not limited to, reforming the criminal and civil justice systems; eradicating discrimination; expanding educational and economic opportunities; improving living standards; increasing citizen access to judicial, legislative, and administrative forums; and encouraging law students and the bar to devote greater resources to public-interest legal work.
PILF prefers to fund discrete projects that can be completed within a year or organizations seeking gap funding. PILF generally does not provide grants for standard operating expenses.
Both individuals and organizations are eligible for funding. Organizations should explain how the proposed project relates to their existing goals and projects. Individual applicants must demonstrate a strong commitment to public-interest law.
Three to five grants ranging from $1,000 to $15,000 will be awarded. The deadline for proposals is January 12th. For more information, go here.
