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 or to internship stipends as well.
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 a processing fee from the donation as commission, about US$2.50 on a US$100 donation. No other charges should apply and please contact us if they do. Note that we do not receive your credit card information: just the address you provide for a thank you (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 firstname.lastname@example.org for instructions.
On behalf of the world's least developed countries, thank you.
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.
