Government Law Section Gives Foundation $3,000 

COLUMBIA, SC (Oct. 8, 2012) – The Government Law Section of the South Carolina Bar contributed $3,000 to the South Carolina Bar Foundation. The gift will support the Children’s Fund and the Disabled Lawyers Fund.

“The enormous benefits provided by the Foundation, through its various programs, are exemplary,” said Timothy C. Winslow, chair of the Government Law Section. “On behalf of the Section, we hope that this donation will assist in some small part for the continuation of these worthwhile programs.”

The Section’s governing Council and members have committed to the goal of making an annual gift to the Foundation.

The Government Law Section of the South Carolina Bar furthers the improvement and development of legislation pertaining to state and local governments and seeks to simplify and improve administrative and judicial procedures in the field of government law. The Section also provides programs for lawyers who represent clients before government entities, works with related groups to sponsor or publicize programs of mutual interest and sponsors an electronic mailing list for members.

“Though we continue to deal with depressed IOLTA revenue, the mission of the Foundation remains unchanged. We have a responsibility to support our grantees whether or not IOLTA is having a ‘good year.’ This gift comes at the perfect time and will help the Foundation provide critical resources that are changing lives daily,” said Shannon Willis Scruggs, the Foundation’s Executive Director.

 

The South Carolina Bar Foundation, the Heart of the Bar, funds the advancement of justice by improving access, education and accountability.  Since 1987, the Foundation has allocated approximately $43.8 million to various legal-related organizations that work on behalf of the justice community. Last year alone, Foundation grantees assisted more than 10,200 low income South Carolinians in need of legal services, 450 homeless men and women and 390 victims of domestic abuse.
