Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $3,000 to Minnesota nonprofit organizations for legal aid services and other activities related to the legal and justice systems. Funding is intended to support programs and projects in the areas of legal education, public interest legal work, legal assistance to the disadvantaged, law-related education, and improvement of the administration of justice.

Guidelines:

  • The Foundation has been interested in the past and continues to be interested in programs of law-related education for students and adults, including, where appropriate, publications, workshops, and related programs.
  • The Foundation seeks to encourage and promote legal assistance to the poor and disadvantaged groups.
  • The Foundation seeks to support and to promote programs and projects having as their purpose the improvement of the administration of justice. Providing information to the public so that it might better understand the Courts and legal processes is included within this purpose.
  • The Foundation will give consideration to projects and programs supporting or promoting public interest legal work.
  • The Foundation will, in allocating its funds, attempt to maintain a proper balance between:
    • Those new and innovative programs which may be of an experimental nature and that need assistance in the form of "seed money"; and
    • Those projects of special concern to lawyers that are of a continuing nature and need periodic contributions to their operating budgets.
  • The Foundation does not preclude itself from awarding grants for scholarships and fellowships, but it will strive to make such grants primarily under such circumstances that will promote the general public welfare rather than the personal benefit of the individual donees.
  • Since Continuing Legal Education Programs for lawyers are, in general, well supported by tuition charges, the Foundation feels obligated to consider support only for such Continuing Legal Education Programs that may be of an experimental nature or of general interest to the entire membership of the Bar and are not self-supporting.
