The Wisconsin Trust Account Foundation works with civil legal aid organizations in Wisconsin to increase access to justice. We oversee funds and invest in services and projects to help people resolve legal problems.

Support civil legal aid

Here are several ways you can support justice for all:

  1. Donate to WisTAF via PayPal or personal check.
  2. Donate to one of our grant recipients. 
  3. Urge your financial institution to join our Prime Partner program. Paying additional interest on lawyers' trust accounts is a commitment already made by these financial institutions around Wisconsin.

For lawyers specifically:

  1. Encourage your firm or organization to do one of the above.
  2. Consider offering your expertise to those in need through a pro bono or reduced-rate program.

For lawyers, judges, and mediators:

  1. Name WisTAF a recipient of residual funds resulting from class action lawsuits. In state courts, this is a statutory requirement.

Any of the above will expand the circle of who is able to access lawyers' problem-solving expertise when faced with threats to safety, health, housing, or financial independence. We appreciation your commitment.
