    Feb. 17, 2021 – The Wisconsin Law Foundation is seeking grant applications for charitable or educational programs that promote greater public understanding of the law and the improvement of the administration of justice, or are an educational program or project that directly affects Wisconsin residents.

    Each year, the Foundation – through up to 12 high-impact Truman Q. McNulty Grants of $1,000 to $2,350 each – supports charitable or educational projects across the state that promote greater public understanding of the law and improve the administration of justice. These are programs that directly impact Wisconsin residents.

    In 2020, the Foundation awarded a total of $24,400 in grants. During the COVID-19 lockdown in 2020, McNulty grants helped programs like the Boys & Girls Club of Portage County to continue their missions by helping them switch to connecting virtually. A McNulty grant “helped us continue serving youth through this difficult time,” said the club’s executive director, Kevin Quevillon.

    Find out more about past recipients on the Foundation’s webpage and in the Aug. 19, 2020 issue of InsideTrack.

    More details about the grants are available on the McNulty Grant Guidelines and Instructions webpage.

    Apply by April 2, 2021

    To apply, visit the Foundation’s grants webpage for application instructions, or contact Beth Drake at, (608) 250-6171, or (800) 444-9404, ext. 6171.

    Grant applications must be received by 5 p.m. on April 2, 2021. Applicants will be notified of the Foundation’s grant award decisions by Monday, May 31, 2021.
