Welcome to the

Alberta Law Foundation.

The Alberta Law Foundation is the recipient of the interest which banks, credit unions, trust companies, and treasury branches pay on clients' funds held in lawyers' pooled trust accounts. (This does not include interest paid on a specific trust investment held for an individual client). The interest is made available by the Foundation by way of grants to organizations engaged in activities which are considered to be in keeping with the Foundation's objects.

How To Apply How To Apply

The grant application process begins with a discussion of your program or project idea with the Program Coordinator, followed by submission of a draft application. Staff will provide feedback on the draft, then the application is finalized and submitted for review and decision by the Alberta Law Foundation Board of Directors. The Foundation does not accept grant applications for new projects or programs without first having had a discussion about the proposal with the prospective applicant. See the How to Apply tab for complete instructions. Staff can assist with the application process but the funding decision rests with the Board of Directors.
