BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Since inception in 1992, the Alabama Civil Justice Foundation (ACJF) has awarded more than $10 million in funds to local and statewide nonprofit organizations. These grants have gone to a wide range of social justice-related initiatives, including programs and services that assist children, families and seniors by providing civil legal aid and social services.
The ACJF was established in 1992 as an IOLTA to receive interest from lawyer’s trust accounts for charitable efforts throughout the state. Participation has grown from 50 attorneys in 1993 to more than 2,300 today. The ACJF began operating as a grant making foundation in 1993 with the first set of grants awarded in December of that year.
