Field Law Launches Community Fund Program
May 28, 2013
The recently launched Field Law Community Fund Program provides an additional $75,000 annually to local projects and/or organizations. Through a combination of community online voting and deliberation by local judging panels, finalists will be announced and awards between $1,000 and $30,000 will be allocated. Community individuals and/or groups in and around Calgary, Edmonton and Yellowknife are eligible to apply for funds.
"Field Law cares about the communities we work and live in," said Jim Casey, Managing Partner at Field. "We are eager to go beyond the practice of law and help get good ideas off the ground that will have a measurable and ripple effect on the community."
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.
