Become a Sponsor
Just the Beginning Foundation is able to excel in programming through the support of the attorneys, law firms, judges, professors, law students, community residents, and businesses who donate their money, time, space, and expertise.
Because JTBF seeks to expand its programs and reach additional students across the country, the organization is continually looking for sponsors to help advance its mission.
There are multiple ways in which you can contribute to Just the Beginning Foundation:

A large part of Just the Beginning Foundation's programming is to expose the students to new and exciting legal experiences. Visiting a law firm or legal department for a lunch panel is one of those experiences. The students enjoy seeing where attorneys work, learning about their practice, and taking in nice views of the city.
JTBF also has opportunities for attorneys to share their stories, mentor students, and work with them on exercises such as preparing and judging oral arguments. Exposing the students to a wide variety of attorneys helps them find a role model and demonstrates that a legal education is attainable.
Supplies and Product Contribution
Just the Beginning Foundation is always appreciative of in-kind gifts in the form of supplies and products which can be used or enjoyed by the students.
If you are interested in hosting a group of students, volunteering your time, donating in-kind, or contributing in another way, please contact the Development Director.
