The DRI Foundation is committed to giving back to DRI members, their communities, and the cities that host DRI events. Proceeds raised by the DRI Foundation go directly toward funding and fostering initiatives that make a difference, including diversity programs, healthy living programs, and more. Members engage with local communities through fundraising and volunteer activities, as well as wellness activities, support programs, and mentoring to help lead healthy, balanced, and productive lives.

The DRI Foundation helps promote the work of volunteer-led committees, including:

  • DRI Cares, which helps members engage with local communities through fundraising and volunteer activities.
  • DRI for Life, which helps members lead healthy, balanced, and productive lives through wellness activities, support programs, and mentoring.

Your donations to the DRI Foundation will have a tangible impact on the well-being of the legal community and beyond.

How You Can Get Involved with the Foundation?

Donate

For members and non-members, donations to the DRI Foundation are greatly appreciated and go directly toward DRI’s efforts to improve wellness for our members and their communities.

Law Student Diversity Scholarship

To increase diversity in the legal profession in a constructive and tangible way, DRI awards three law student scholarships annually – one for $10,000 and two for $5,000. The goal of the scholarship is to provide financial assistance to three worthy law students from ABA accredited law schools to promote the DRI Diversity Statement in Principle.

Recipients of the scholarship are announced at the DRI Diversity for Success Seminar.

International Day of Service

The DRI Foundation, along with participating state, local and national defense organizations (SLNDOs), held its first International Day of Service in October 2022. The Foundation asked SLNDOs to hold a service project of their choice during the month of October. The SLNDOs had an opportunity to give back to the community and strengthen relationships with DRI members and SLNDOs across the nation.

Watch for information on the 2023 International Day of Service in the coming months!
