Legal Legacy Fund
The Legal Legacy Fund is ABE's unrestricted giving fund. The charitable grants made from this fund are used to support legal research, educational and public service projects in accordance with the grant-making polices developed by the Board of ABE for the Legal Legacy Fund. Donors do not have any formal role in making recommendations for grants from the Legal Legacy Fund.
Donors may contribute directly to the Legal Legacy Fund and may also recommend grants to the Legal Legacy Fund from their ABE Charitable Gift Account (CGF) . There is no minimum amount required for direct contributions to the Legal Legacy Fund, but a minimum of $250.00 (applies to all CGF grant recommendations) is required for transfers from a Charitable Gift Account.
To contribute directly to the Legal Legacy Fund, please complete the Legal Legacy Fund Contribution Form and mail it to ABE along with the donation. Once your donation has been received, the American Bar Endowment will mail you an acknowledgement receipt. Direct contributions to the Legal Legacy Fund are eligible for a charitable tax deduction.
Contributions to ABE are tax deductible under Section 170(c) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code, in accordance with IRS regulations and the March 1987 ruling provided to ABE by the IRS.
For more information, contact the ABE at 800-621-8981, extension 6408.
Thank you for your support of the American Bar Endowment.
