    Feb. 21, 2024 – The Wisconsin Law Foundation seeks grant applications for charitable or educational programs in Wisconsin 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.

    Thanks to donations from State Bar members, the Foundation annually provides high-impact Truman Q. McNulty grants of $1,000 to $2,600 each to projects that directly affect Wisconsin residents.

    A McNulty Grant in 2023 supported the startup of the Sauk County Circuit Court Pro Se Family Law Clinic. This clinic provides self-represented litigants the opportunity to have access to user-friendly forms and written instructions, in both English and Spanish.

    The clinic provides assistance through a customer service representative for procedural information and from volunteer attorneys who provide pro bono legal assistance.

    In 2023, the Foundation awarded $25,000 in grants to ten organizations that help youth in teen courts, self-represented family law litigants, families burdened by medical debt, and immigration clients, and which promote public understanding of the law and legal history.

    Find out more about past recipients on the Foundation’s webpage and in the June 7, 2023, issue of InsideTrack.

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

    Apply by April 5, 2024

    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.
