We're pleased to officially announce the Award winners* of the Field Law Community Fund Program for 2013. These outstanding individuals and groups have demonstrated an understanding of the areas of need within each of their communities and, with the funds from the Program, will work to make a difference in each community.
The Field Law Community Fund Program received 83 applications for funding, including those that support at-risk youth, education, homeless, women’s organizations, community sports and arts and culture. Through a combination of community (public) online voting and deliberation by a local judging panel finalists were selected to receive anywhere from $1,000 to the total annual award of $30,000 (depending on the market).
