Grants program


Using funds generated through the Fellows program, the board of trustees initiated a Grants program in 2000. The foundation seeks to fund programs that directly provide pro bono counsel to low-income residents in Allegheny County and/or promote the public understanding, interest, and support of legal-related issues. Since 2000, the foundation has awarded grants totaling over $645,837.

The foundation annually reviews grant proposals in September and distributes the funds the following January. Grant proposals are normally due the 2nd Friday in August. For more information about the Grants program, please contact Lorrie Albert at the foundation at 412-402-6640.

End of year grant report is due by Monday, Jan. 31, 2022 and can be found here.
