Welcome to Wisconsin Equal Justice Fund
Wisconsin Equal Justice Fund, Inc. (WEJF) is the only private fundraising effort supporting three of Wisconsin’s largest pro bono civil legal services programs: Disability Rights Wisconsin, Legal Action of Wisconsin, and Wisconsin Judicare. These programs are often the last line of defense for low-income citizens facing homelessness, unemployment, and devastating poverty.
Ensuring equal justice is a high priority for Wisconsin lawyers. Since its inception in 1997, WEJF has raised almost $5 million for Wisconsin legal services. Lawyer and law firm contributions are the cornerstone of our efforts and the catalyst for a growing partnership with foundations and corporations.
While our member programs receive federal funds for a portion of their operating costs, those funds continue to shrink, and federal grants are often conditioned upon a showing of private funding. Your donation to WEJF not only directly sustains our member programs but also allows them to raise additional grant funds.
Please consider making a gift to WEJF today to help ensure equal access to justice for all Wisconsin citizens.
