Attorney Awards Nominations Due March 4
TCWLA’s Attorney Awards honor outstanding women lawyers in our community. The awards are presented at the annual TCWLA – TCWLF charity awards luncheon held in late Spring of each year, which is a joyful celebration of the achievements of TCWLA and members of the legal profession during the preceding year. During the luncheon the achievements of each recipient are described in detail and applauded.
Foundation Grant Applications Due March 1
Click here for a grant application. Grants are awarded to organizations providing legal services to women, children, and families in the Central Texas area. Grants generally intended to fund a specific project of the recipient’s program, rather than merely contributing to a general operating budget. Grants awarded in the past have been in the range of $500 to $3,000 or more. The grants are awarded at the Foundation’s annual spring luncheon, a celebration co-hosted with TCWLA. A representative of the successful grantee should be available to attend our awards luncheon.
