PILF’s primary fundraising event, the Auction & Award Ceremony, is one of the signature events at the USF School of Law.
Public Interest Law Foundation (PILF) hosts an evening of celebration
and fundraising to enable USF Law students to commit to summer positions
at organizations focused on
addressing gaps in our justice system. The annual event brings together
students, alumni, faculty, staff, and members of the legal community to
support the next generation of public interest lawyers. Last year’s Auction raised over $40,000.
This amount, plus matching funds contributed by the School of Law and
money raised through the Donate-a-Day Summer Pledge Program, PILF
was able to provide twenty students with $4,000 grants to work in
unpaid, full-time public interest positions in summer 2013.
The PILF Auction features vacation packages, spa retreats, cruise tickets, sporting
memorabilia, fine jewelry and services (and more!) donated by local and national
businesses, local law firms and members of the USF Law community. With a silent
auction, live auction, hors d'oeuvres, cocktails, and entertainment, the Auction is a
festive event. The Auction also provides an opportunity for the law school to recognize
an individual or organization that has contributed significantly to the struggle for
equality, peace and justice with the USF PILF Award for Public Interest Excellence.
The 2013 USF Law PILF Gala Auction & Award Ceremony is
being held at Kendrick Hall at the School of Law on Friday, November 8th
and is Honoring California Supreme Court Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye.
