The majority of EJF's outside funding is raised at the annual Public Interest Charity Auction where we auction goods and services donated by WCL students, faculty and staff, and by the local business community.
By donating to the Equal Justice Foundation, generous supporters help support valuable public interest work around the world. Recent donations have helped fund students who have:
- advocated for disability rights in New York City;
- provided legal services to women in Bosnia;
- promoted human rights in Nigeria; and
- campaigned against domestic violence in Washington, D.C.
No portion of contributions is used for overhead; 100% of donations are used to fund stipends.
American University is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization; therefore, all donations are tax deductible. Donors may also receive a feature in the auction bid book, thereby enjoying publicity with hundreds of Washington College of Law alumni, professors, staff and students attending the event.
To donate, please send a check in whatever increment to the following address:
