So You Have Agreed to Help...A Resource Guide for Lawyers to Help Solicit Funds for Local Law-Related Education Projects.
Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity International, Washington, DC.
This guide provides assistance to the lawyer who has volunteered to help a law-related education project by soliciting supplementary funds from local business, civic, or other sources. Specifically, the guide offers guidance in identifying and approaching potential donors, preparing the request for funds, and organizing supporting data and follow-up information. The solicitation process has been streamlined to allow the busy lawyer to secure the necessary funds with a minimum expenditure of time. Following an introduction, the first of four main sections assists readers in understanding the nature and scope of potential projects. The second section suggests ways of locating funds from corporations, labor organizations, private foundations, banks, community service and professional organizations, and individuals. The third section offers methods of solicitation. Finally, the guide stresses the need for follow-up activities to inform donors of how their funds were used. The first of two appendices provides statistics, facts, and findings that show why schoolchildren need to know more about law, the legal process, and the legal system, for those trying to build a case for law-related education when soliciting funds. A second appendix provides a sample letter of solicitation. (LH)
