The 2017 All In! contributions campaign has come to a close, and we have raised $28,425 in contributions to continue building a foundation for the Fellows Alumni program to make a greater impact on all of our careers and on the legal profession itself. Added to last year's contributions, that's nearly $60,000 collected for the All In! fund to date!

Thank you to all of the Fellows Alumni who have contributed to this year's effort to take the program to the next level!

Original article published February 6, 2017:

The Fellows Alumni Executive Committee is delighted with the support for our "All In!" campaign during its inaugural year. Now, with the start of a new year, we want to see our Year Two "All In!" campaign hit an even higher mark.

The proceeds from the first year's campaign will enable us to strengthen our annual Leadership Symposium (formerly known as the Fellows Alumni Conference) and our growing regional programming efforts. We want this year’s campaign to show that we're All In! for the long term as we continue to develop programs and networking events that will help each of our careers and move the diversity ball forward for the profession as a whole.

As was the case last year, all of the members of the Alumni Executive Council have made the commitment and are “All In!” This is a personal commitment that each of us has made, and we hope that you'll join us in showing your support for the growth and continued success of the Fellows Alumni group.

We are building a national community that will have far-reaching effects for all of us.

Take a minute now and make your contribution by clicking the "CONTRIBUTE NOW" button. We are keeping our contribution amount at last year's $125* level, and we want more to join the initiative. Please act today and encourage other Fellows Alumni to do the same.

Those who contribute will receive a commemorative pin with the logo below while supplies last—so make your contribution early. We hope that you'll wear your pin with pride at networking events and, of course, at the Leadership Symposium.

Please check back over the next few months for updates on the progress of this year's campaign.

Let's keep building!
