Annual Public Interest Fellowship Program Auction


The Public Interest Fellowship Program (PIFP) of Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law will host the 2017 PIFP Auction on Friday, March 31. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the event, PIFP’s largest and most successful fundraiser.

Comprised of both silent and live auctions, the event in recent years has featured 250 to 300 items donated by individuals and businesses throughout Greater Philadelphia and across the country, all proceeds go towards providing $4,500 fellowships to current students who commit their summers to performing public service legal work and towards providing one $12,000 fellowship each year to a recent graduate who has committed to working full-time for a public service organization or governmental agency.

This year's event features hundreds of donated items, including Jimmy Fallon tickets and a night out in New York City, a week on the Jersey Shore, Barbri Bar Review course, hot air balloon rides, one semester of textbooks, various outings with Law School professors, Philadelphia Opera tickets and more.

Please join PIFP in helping public interest organizations to deliver volunteer legal services to those in need. For more information, click here. We look forward to seeing you on March 31st.
