Cy Pres awards and court settlements
Please keep Community Legal Aid in mind when directing a Cy Pres or court settlement award. Cy Pres awards allow unclaimed settlement funds from class-action suits to be distributed to organizations that are most likely to benefit or pursue the interests of the class. Court settlement awards come about when parties in a case agree that as part of the settlement one party will make a specified dollar contribution to a specific charity and the court approves the settlement.
Awards can be unrestricted-- for general support --or be designated to support legal assistance for a particular population or a specific area of law within CLA’s scope. For more information please contact:
