The Northwest Consumer Law Center welcomes Cy Pres awards to support our work for low and moderate income consumers.

The term Cy Pres is from the French meaning “as near as possible” and Cy Pres awards allow unclaimed settlement funds from class-action suits to be distributed to nonprofit organizations that are most likely to pursue the interests of the settlement.  Class counsel often has the ability to nominate charitable organizations like NWCLC to receive these funds. Any Cy Pres awards received will be used to further NWCLC’s mission:

The Northwest Consumer Law Center zealously advocates, litigates, and promotes access to justice for low and moderate income clients, and through its education programs, empowers consumers with the knowledge and resources to protect their rights.

If you have any questions about whether NWCLC might be appropriate for Cy Pres in a particular case, please contact
Sheila O’Sullivan,
Executive Director at 206 -805-0989
or sheila@nwclc.org.
