DONATE

The NITA Foundation is a charitable organization dedicated to providing resources to fulfill NITA's mission of public service to the legal community. Since 2003, it has disbursed over $3.25 million to support NITA's programs and to offer scholarship assistance to worthy applicants working with the underserved and historically disenfranchised populations.
