CHARLOTTESVILLE — Jamestown Rediscovery Foundation will receive a grant of $25,000 from The Virginia Law Foundation, it was announced Wednesday.

The Foundation’s 2022 grants support various projects and organizations, including legal aid, nonprofits, continuing legal education programs, medical-legal partnership, public service internships for law students, and many other relevant causes, according to the foundation.

“Our annual grants program allows us to play an essential part in promoting the important work and services that these deserving grant recipients provide,” said. Colleen M. Quinn, chair of the Foundation’s Grants Committee.

The Virginia Law Foundation has awarded nearly $550,000 to 24 organizations in 2022, adding many of this year’s grants are directly in response to an increased need for legal aid due to challenges created by the multi-year COVID-19 pandemic and the growing justice gap, which represents the difference between the legal needs of low-income Virginians and the resources available and accessible to meet those needs.

“The Virginia Law Foundation is simply a reflection of our wonderful and generous donors,” said Ray White, Executive Director of the Virginia Law Foundation.
