VelanDale Scholarship Dinner Sponsors


Join the Wisconsin Association of African-American Lawyers as we host the 28th Annual VelanDale Scholarship Dinner on September 6, 2018. We invite you to unite with us in this important work by becoming a sponsor of the Scholarship Dinner. By supporting the 28th Annual VelanDale Scholarship Dinner, your organization will demonstrate its leadership and committment to diversity in Wisconsin's legal community.

WAAL’s Educational Foundation provides financial assistance to African-American students attending Wisconsin law schools. For almost thirty years, this scholarship fund, founded by Vel, the first African-American judge in Wisconsin, and her husband Dale, has served to increase opportunities for African-American law students, ultimately assisting with the diversification of the State Bar and legal profession as a whole. In 2013 and 2017, WAAL expanded scholarship awards to include the Honorable Maxine A. White Book Scholarship and the Honorable Charles N. Clevert Jr. Scholarship award, in commemoration of each namesake.

The sponsorship levels are as follows:

Diamond Level Partner - $5,000.00

Platinum Level Sponsor - $3,500.00

Gold Level Sponsor - $2,500.00

Scholarship Donor - $500.00
