About The Foundation

Why Should You Support The Foundation?

ACFLS Foundation
Giving to charity is a mood-booster

The knowledge that you’re helping others is hugely empowering and, in turn, can make you feel happier and more fulfilled. 

ACFLS Foundation
Giving To Charity Strengthens Personal Values

The feeling of social conscience is the most widely-given reason to give to charity. Having the power to improve the lives of others is, to many people, a privilege, and one that comes with its own sense of obligation.

Impact Stories

The ACFLS Charitable Foundation showcases the generosity of ACFLS members as well as friends of the organization. The foundation was formed to help provide direct and substantial financial support to programs and individuals who are working to improve access to justice, provide family law education as required and to improve the California family law process for affected persons, families or groups in need.”

"We are extremely grateful to the Association of Certified Family Law Specialists Foundation for awarding this $10,000 grant to support the efforts of LACBA’s Domestic Violence Legal Services Project to help clients take their first step to breaking away from their abuser"

"Unfortunately, for every parent we help without charge, we are forced to turn away five others. In 2016, over 50 parents could not start our programs due to lack of funding, and another 23 could not complete the Nurturing Parenting Program, due to inadequate funding. This grant from the ACFLS will allow us to substantially increase the services we can provide to parents in the coming years."
