Law Foundation of British Columbia  
http://www.lawfoundationbc.org/

The Law Foundation of British Columbia is a non-profit foundation created by legislation in 1969 to receive and distribute the interest on clients' funds held in lawyers' pooled trust accounts maintained in financial institutions.

 

The Legal Profession Act directs the Law Foundation to distribute these funds in five areas:

 

  • legal education;
  • legal research;
  • legal aid;
  • law reform; and
  • law libraries.

 

The Foundation recognizes that while its objectives are legal in nature, the income is to be allocated to programs that will benefit the general public of British Columbia.

 

A grant application:

  • must be submitted by a non-profit organization
  • must fall within one or more of the five mandated areas
  • must establish a clear benefit to the people of British Columbia
