Choose the TAPS Endowment for Your Year-End Giving and Supporting our Public Service Fellows

Through the Tax Assistance Public Service (TAPS) endowment fund, the Section of Taxation seeks to provide stable, long-term funding for its tax-related public service programs. The TAPS endowment fund will primarily support the Christine A. Brunswick Public Service Fellowship program. The Public Service Fellowship program provides two-year fellowships for recent law school graduates working for non-profit organizations offering tax-related legal assistance to underserved communities. Consider giving to the TAPS endowment fund today. Your generous support will help ensure that the Section can continue its mission to provide legal assistance to those in need.
