Illinois Judges Foundation
Welcome

The Illinois Judges Foundation, a relatively new organization, was

established in 2007 by the members of the Illinois Judges Association and

received its 501(c) 3 status at that time. The mission of the organization is

philanthropic in nature and purpose. Its membership is composed of both

current sitting judges and retired judges from the state court level

throughout the State of Illinois.

The Illinois Judges Foundation, the charitable arm of the Illinois Judges

Association, funds  educational, civic, and scholarship projects that

benefit youth and law students, and encourages judicial participation in

these endeavors, to advance the rule of law, the legal profession, and the

administration of justice.

Presently, the IJF funds the following initiatives:

"7 Reasons to Leave the Party" -- an award-winning program in

which Illinois judges talk to students about the legal and personal

consequences of drinking and driving.

"Page it Forward Reading Program" -- program that gets books to

school age students in need.

Judge Harold Sullivan $5,000 annual scholarship award to one

of the nine Illinois law schools.

 American Bar Association's Judicial Intern Opportunity

Program -- a summer judicial internship program comprised of first-

or second-year minority or financially disadvantaged law students;

In keeping with the mission of the Foundation, other initiatives that could

be considered for funding in the future include:

·        Projects around the state to assist the poor and under-represented

better understand court proceedings, make informed decisions, find help,

and present their cases in court;

·        Programs that mentor or teach children and young adults about the

legal system and the role of judges and lawyers within it.
