Applying for a Grant from the American College of Bankruptcy Foundation

The American College of Bankruptcy Foundation (the “Foundation”) awards grants to legal services organizations whose activities are consistent with the objectives of the mission of the Foundation. Grant awards are made by the Foundation’s Pro Bono Committee (the “Committee”).

Before Applying for a Grant

Please take a few minutes to look through our compilation of Pro Bono Resources. Select past grant recipients have made their electronic materials available to organizations providing pro bono legal services. Agencies received funds from the American College of Bankruptcy to create materials to aid pro bono attorneys in providing much needed bankruptcy assistance to low income debtors.
