FALA is a nonprofit organization, operated by attorney, paralegal, community and educational volunteers to further the professional development of interior Alaska paralegals. Making a gift to support FALA helps ensures the interior legal community is supported by well educated legal support work force. There are several ways to become a FALA sponsor:

· Teach a FALA CLE - Do you have expertise in an area of legal specialty  that will benefit the Fairbanks community? Contact the FALA Board to volunteer.

· Make a Monetary Donation - FALA accepts donations large and small, channeling them toward Paralegal Studies Scholarships, Paralegal Certification Assistance and Community Support Programs.

· Participate in  FALA Community Projects - FALA sponsors at least two community based special events every year. Our summer social is key to fund-raising for the FALA scholarship programs. During the winter holiday season, FALA  participates in Fairbanks based programs to support families or groups who are struggling. Time, monetary, and material donations are critical needs for FALA during these campaigns.

· Attend FALA Meetings - FALA meetings are an opportunity to contribute to program planning, committee progress and leadership development.
