How to Support our Program

Donations of any amount (even US$20-50) support our program.
We commit 100% of donations received to scholarships or to the cost of securely transmitting scholarship awards to the students.

We have 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. We accept contributions from all over the world - by Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover - or your PayPal account if you have one.

PayPal deducts a processing fee from the donation; about US$2.50 on a US$100 donation. No other charges should apply and please contact us if they do. We do not receive your credit card information: just the address you provide 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 - 2017

Lex:lead launched with a grant from the International Bar Association Foundation who sponsored our first scholarships in 2010 and in 2012 granted us an extraordinary secondary award. Thank you to all donors who make the scholarships possible.
