The Legacy Fund for the Environment partners with the public in identifying and prosecuting legal action in defence of the environment. We invite activists and their non-profit organizations (NPOs) to discuss proposals for legal action with us.

We select our cases based on criteria such as the importance of the case to society, importance of the case as a legal precedent, chances of success, cost and available funding and quality of the legal team selected. If the Legacy Fund adopts a proposal, we will enter into an agreement with the NPO and, because we do not have lawyers on staff, with the legal team selected to prosecute the case. This agreement will cover such details as funding, reporting and oversight of the case.

If you have a proposal to discuss, please contact us at the address below.
