The Impact Fund has a limited pool of funds to assist with hotel and travel costs for Institute attendees employed by nonprofit and legal services organizations. We provide financial assistance on a first-come, first-served basis, according to the order in which registrations are received.

The Impact Fund provides the following financial assistance:

      Hotel: We will book your hotel and pay room and tax only for up to 3 nights, shared with one other Institute attendee. You may request a private room and pay the difference in cost.

      Flight: We will reimburse air travel at the lowest available round-trip coach fare, up to $600.

      Mileage/Parking: If you are driving more than fifteen miles to attend the Institute, we will reimburse hotel parking and mileage to and from the Institute at a rate of $0.54 per mile.

We do not provide financial assistance for the following expenditures:

  • Registration fees
  • Airline baggage fees
  • Airline reservation change fees
  • Airport parking
  • Ground transportation to/from the airport
  • Car rental
  • Ground transportation during the conference
  • Hotel amenity fees (including wi-fi)
  • Food and drink outside of the Institute

Important Dates:

You will be notified of your financial assistance status once you are admitted to the Institute. Your acceptance package will include a Financial Assistance Reimbursement Form to be returned along with all applicable receipts no later than 30 days after the final day of your session. Reimbursement Forms received after that date will not be approved.
