DAYL Foundation's July Grant Recipient Spotlight!

CitySquare, a local non-profit, founded in 1988 by a Dallas businessman who was concerned with problems associated with poverty. Since its formation, CitySquare has grown dramatically and now offers a comprehensive array of social services that address four key areas related to the persistence of poverty: hunger, health, housing, and hope.

In 2018, the DAYL Foundation awarded CitySquare a grant to support CitySquare’s Legal Action Works (LAW) Program, which provides legal services to low-income families that could not otherwise afford legal representation. The LAW Program is committed to increase the level of safety, security, and stability for clients and their families as they work to move beyond poverty. Thanks to the DAYL Foundation’s grant, the LAW attorneys were able to work on more than 300 family law cases.

The entire community is needed when it comes to fighting poverty; and the DAYL Foundation is glad to be able to assist CitySquare to fight the causes and effects of poverty through service, advocacy, and friendship.

We love hearing the stories about all the great work that results from our grant funding!

A great Big THANK YOU to the DAYL Foundation for granting us the funding to provide a very informative and beneficial Know Your Rights workshop for victims/survivors of domestic violence, and their client advocates/case managers. The session covered useful information on the court and police system, as well as various visas/protective orders, and the divorce process. It was held earlier this month, and led by 2 very experienced and knowledgeable attorneys, John Ting & Kristine Cruz! Those that attended found the workshop to be very helpful and shared that the workshop enhanced their knowledge of the legal system, and that they will be able to apply the knowledge they learnt in their daily lives!

Thank You DAYL Foundation!! We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to offer such a valuable workshop!

DAYL Foundation

The DAYL Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization that provides funding for law-related matters to local non-profit organizations as well as scholarships for law students who have demonstrated a passion for community service. Since 1999, the DAYL Foundation has awarded over $210,000 in grants and $41,000 in scholarships.

Last year, the DAYL Foundation provided grants for local non-profits that, among other things, promoted knowledge of the rule of law, improved the delivery of legal services to the indigent, and fostered public confidence in the profession of law. For example, the DAYL Foundation enabled students to attend programs such as a mock trial institute, the YMCA Youth & Government Program, and a field trip to the Capitol. It also provided funds for several non-profits to provide computer equipment and software for their clients as well as develop online CLEs and tools related to domestic violence, juvenile justice, and financial management. The DAYL Foundation also offset costs related to providing legal services for those who cannot afford it. The 2017 Grant Recipients included Ability Connection, Advocates for Community Transformation, Court Appointed Special Advocates of Collin County, Children at Risk, Dallas CASA, Unlocking DOORS, Girls Embracing Mothers, Housing Crisis Center, Human Rights Initiative of North Texas, Inc., IGNITE, Jane’s Due Process, Legacy Family Court Foundation, Dallas Legal Hospice, Metroplex Military Charitable Trust, Mosiac Family Services, Texas Accountants and Lawyers for the Arts, Texas Lawyers for Children, Texas Muslim Women’s Foundation, YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas, and Young Women’s Preparatory Network.

The DAYL Foundation also provides tuition scholarships at UNT College of Law, SMU Dedman School of Law, and Texas A&M School of Law through the Alexander Bolton Law Student Scholarship Program to students who demonstrate a commitment to community service.

The DAYL Foundation is able to give back to our community, in large part, due to the generosity of the DAYL Foundation Fellows. Currently, the Fellows include over 700 lawyers and judges.
