With your help, our 2018 fundraiser brought in over 422 guests and 20 sponsors, and raised enough money to fund 25 summer grants. PILF summer grants support students working unpaid legal positions with public interest law firms such King County Department of Public Defense, Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, and TeamChild. This experiential learning opportunity would not otherwise be possible for many students, and helps to fill unmet need in the access to justice community. We hope you will be a part of this mission, and help us reach our goal of funding 25 grants at the increased grant amount of $5000 in 2019!
The Public Interest Law Foundation (PILF) is a student-led organization committed to increasing awareness of the rewards, challenges, opportunities, and needs in public interest law. Over the past two decades, PILF has created and supported a number of programs that enable students to explore and engage in public interest careers, such as the law school's Loan Repayment Assistance Program, job shadowing and networking events like the Evening with Equal Justice, and the PILF Summer Grant Program. PILF also engages in major fundraising efforts through its Fall Pledge Drive and its Spring Auction and Event in support of the Summer Grant Program.
