Federal Bar Foundation Announcement

We are pleased to announce that the Federal Bar Foundation’s 2021 Fund Drive surpassed the targeted fundraising goal of $300,000 and raised close to $400,000. The additional funds will be used to establish the new Robert A. Katzmann Civics Education Grant (to fund the annual Justice For All Teacher’s Institute and other civics education activities stemming from the Second Circuit’s Civics Education program) and summer internship stipends for the Federal Defenders of New York. 

The Foundation is grateful to this year’s many donors, many of whom donated for the first time or increased their gifts to help fund these two new programs. Special thanks and acknowledgment goes to our Platinum Level donors at the $25,000 + level: Wachtell, Sullivan & Cromwell, Kramer Levin, Morvillo Abramowitz, Davis Polk, and Cravath. The Law Firm Donor Roll can be found here.
