Fundraising Goal for 2014

Posted On By

November is coined as philanthropy month and marks the busiest season for non-profits.  More importantly it is a time for all of us to reflect for a moment, to say thanks and to give back.  Before the close of 2014, we are asking you to include the NITA Foundation into your year-end philanthropic giving plan.

The NITA Foundation is asking for your donation in order to promote Better Lawyering, Better Results, and Better Justice.  The NITA Foundation accomplishes this by awarding scholarships and by funding specialized advocacy skills programs to groups of public service lawyers.

  • Critical Scholarships from NITA make it possible for both public service lawyers and lawyers in need to serve clients with more effective and efficient advocacy skills. Scholarship recipients attend our public programs, learning alongside lawyers who they might meet on the other side of the courtroom.
  • Public Service Programs created by NITA, teach relevant advocacy skills to dedicated groups of public service lawyers.  These programs directly target the lawyers who serve clients most in need of a voice.

In 2013, NITA trained 3,295 attorneys nationwide in 208 advocacy skills programs. Of these, 114 lawyers received NITA scholarships and 641 received their training in public service programming.

We strive to do more.Help us reach our donation goal of $200,000 for 2014.  We have nearly $100,000 remaining and we need your help!  Here are ways you can give to the NITA Foundation:

  • Cash donations
  • Authorize a pledge
  • Give in memory or in honor of a colleague, friend, or family member
  • Donate faculty pay for teaching at a NITA Program or royalty payments from your publications
  • Gift of stock
  • Planned giving – gifts made from an estate, life insurance, or retirement plan assets

No matter the amount, every dollar matters and every dollar raised goes to fund scholarships and public service programs.  Please visit to make a secure online gift or mail donations directly to the NITA Foundation.
