LFW believes that creating fair access to civil justice requires undoing systemic racial oppression. We are committed to becoming an anti-racist organization and strive to reflect racial justice and inclusion in all of our grantmaking. Read more about LFW’s commitment to anti-racism here.

LFW makes recurring Partnership Grants to nonprofit legal aid providers working together to form Washington’s legal aid network. Programs provide systemic legal advocacy and direct in-person civil legal aid for low-income people across the State.

We also created a  Race Equity Grant fund to build power within communities that have been historically overlooked within philanthropy and to combat the disparate outcomes that racism creates for people of color, particularly in the justice system.

We are committed to supporting programs through every step of their work. We offer grant application assistance and comprehensive array of grantee support resources.
