How to Support our Program

Donations of any amount (even US$20-50) support our program.
We commit 100% to scholarships or to the cost of securely transmitting awards to the students--and now to internship stipends as well.

Three ways of donating:

1. PayPal (credit card payments). Click on the link below to be directed to our PayPal account to make a secure donation billed to your credit card.

PayPal deducts about US$2.50 per US$100 donation as a processing fee. We do not receive credit card information: just the address you give for a Section 501(c)(3)-compliant letter.

2. Old-fashioned cheques. Cheques payable to Lex:lead can be mailed to us at 302A West 12th Street, No. 280, New York NY 10014, USA. Please include the donor's full name and contact details including street address and email so we can send a thank you.

3. Wire transfers. If you wish to wire a donation, please email us at contact@lex-lead.org for instructions.

On behalf of the world's least developed countries, thank you.

Donors 2019

We launched with a grant from the International Bar Association Foundation who sponsored our first scholarships in 2010 and in 2012 and 2016 gave us extraordinary follow-on awards. Thank you to all donors who make our programs possible.
