The ACC Foundation Pro Bono Jumpstart ("PBJ") Fund grant program is currently accepting applications from ACC Chapters and Networks to provide funding for pro bono, pipeline, and diversity & inclusion activities that engage in-house counsel participants.

ACC Foundation supports various national diverse bar associations to further  promote  diversity and inclusion initiatives in the corporate legal profession. The ACC Foundation also looks to engage diverse counsel from corporate legal departments, law firms and legal service providers, by encouraging participation and sponsorship at the educational conferences and annual meetings of diverse legal bars. In addition to this support, we actively seek diverse counsel to participate in our own educational training and presentations, as well as opportunities for subject-matter experts to serve as faculty for ACC and/or ACC Foundation programs.

ACC Foundation encourages pro bono activities that lend legal support to the members of local communities.

All active ACC chapters and networks are eligible to submit a grant proposal for up to $10,000 for in-person (and virtual) programs and/or initiatives that engage in-house counsel while providing pro bono (legal) services or diversity pipeline initiatives.

ACC Foundation will accept proposals through February, 2023.  Awards will be announced by April 30, 2023.
