Washington State Bar Foundation – Board of Trustees

Application deadline: June 30, 2011

The Washington State Bar Foundation is the fundraising arm of the Washington State Bar Association. Its mission is to provide financial support for WSBA programs that promote diversity within the legal profession and enhance the public’s access to and understanding of the justice system. Bar Foundation funding helps to power vital programs like the WSBA Moderate Means Project, the WSBA Leadership Institute, and more. The WSBA Board of Governors is seeking to fill five positions on the Bar Foundation Board of Trustees, one of which is reserved for a current law student who has completed at least one academic year. This term will begin October 1st, will last for the duration of the student’s time in law school, and may be renewed upon graduation. Trustees are stewards of the Bar Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and are actively involved in all aspects of donor development. This is a great opportunity for students interested in diversity, justice and public service, and for those looking to gain nonprofit leadership experience while getting to know the legal community.
