A contribution to the Foundation of ALA Silent Auction is an investment in the future of the
legal management profession.

History, Purpose and Goals
 
The Foundation of the Association of Legal Administrators was formed by the ALA Board of Directors in 1981.  Since that time, the Foundation’s mission and goals have focused on the development of education programs, research on the changing legal workplace and increasing awareness of the value of legal management professionals.  For a complete listing of the many projects and  initiatives the Foundation has sponsored see Foundation of ALA website.
 
In 2017, the Trustees voted to sharpen the Foundation’s focus to three areas:
  • Grant Susan French Emerging Leadership Scholarships for Chapter Leadership Institute attendance to applicants who demonstrate a passion for and the attributes needed to pursue leadership roles in ALA and the legal management profession;
  • Sponsorship and selection of the Brezina Session speaker at our annual ALA Conference; and
  • Foster and promote active engagement by ALA members in providing pro bono administrative services, resources and training to legal services organizations. 
For additional information on all three of these programs, visit Foundation of ALA website for more information.
 
All proceeds from this Silent Auction benefit the Foundation. The Foundation is an IRS§ 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization and contributions are fully deductible for federal individual income tax purposes.
