Partnership Grants

LFW is committed to civil justice for all.

Our Partnership Grants provide recurring general operating funds to civil justice programs across Washington. We partner with organizations providing direct civil legal aid, including volunteer attorney programs, and specialized nonprofits focused on impact litigation, policy reform and systemic advocacy.

These long-term grants ensure the stability of civil legal aid in Washington and build an aligned movement toward equity and lasting change. Our vision of “partnership” includes collaborating with grantees to continually improve our systems and build stronger, more effective grantmaking practices.
