Giving back. Paying it forward.
Six years. $475,000. 82 Ideas funded.
The 7th annual Field Law Community Fund Program, which supports local pay-it-forward Ideas, launched on April 1!
Once again, $75,000 in funding is available across Alberta and the Northwest Territories and local individuals, projects and causes are invited to apply for funding.
Through a combination of public online voting and deliberation by a Community Market Judging Panel, finalists are chosen and awarded funds.
We are excited to have donated $475,000 over the past six years in support of local organizations and charitable initiatives, resulting in the funding of 82 projects! You can check out some of their success stories on the Program's Impact page.
“The Program holds a great deal of significance for Field Law. For more than 100 years, our firm has committed itself to professional excellence, collaboration and building enduring relationships that extend beyond our clients to the communities they operate in. We have always been a strong partner in community initiatives as it is one of our core values,” says Doreen Saunderson, Firm Managing Partner, Field Law.
Field Law's preferred causes (but not exclusive) are those that support education, healthcare, at-risk youth, homelessness, women's organizations, community and sports or arts and culture.
