Field Law Launches Fourth Year of Field Law Community Fund Program

Regional law firm supporting local organizations and community causes with $75,000

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - April 11, 2016) - Field Law, a regional law firm with offices in Calgary, Edmonton and Yellowknife, is excited to announce the launch of the 2016 Field Law Community Fund Program ('Program'). The Program supports local pay-it-forward ideas and causes within the communities Field Law serves. In 2016 the Program will donate $75,000 across all three regions.

The Program allows for local individuals, initiatives and registered and non-registered causes to apply for funding over the course of five weeks. In the Northern Alberta Community Market, which includes all of Alberta north of, but not including the City of Red Deer, Program winners can receive anywhere from $1,000 to the maximum award of $30,000. Finalists are then chosen following a combination of community (public) online voting and deliberation by a Community Market Judging Panel.

Over the past three years, the Program has awarded support to 42 organizations and charitable initiatives throughout Alberta and the Northwest Territories. Northern Alberta Community Market winners for the 2015 Program included You Can Ride 2, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul for the Alleviation of Poverty, ED-ucate, Inclusive Play, Linking Generations and the Mahatma Gandhi Canadian Foundation for World Peace.

"At Field Law, building strong relationships within the communities we serve is a top priority," says Jim Casey, Firm Managing Partner, Field Law. "We are excited to continue to contribute to important causes and are honoured to be able to make a difference in the communities where we live, work and interact on a daily basis."

Field Law is deeply invested in the communities it serves. Its preferred causes include (but are not exclusive to) those that support education, healthcare, at-risk youth, homelessness, women's organizations, community and sports, or arts and culture.

"Seeing success stories come forward from our past winners is humbling and exciting," says Geoff Hope, Executive Committee Member and Partner, Field Law. "Our core values at Field Law align with giving back to our communities and we are thrilled to be bringing this initiative back for a fourth year."

The 2016 Field Law Community Fund Program is now open for applications. To apply for the Program and to learn more, visit www.fieldlawcommunityfund.com. Interested individuals and/or groups must submit their online application by 5p.m. MDT on May 13, 2016.
