The DAYL Foundation lost a great advocate on October 21, 2017, as Alex Bolton, trustee and the Foundation’s 2017 Vice-Chair, passed away in a tragic accident. We cannot begin to express the grief and sadness felt now by the Foundation’s trustees, fellows, and supporters. His loss will be felt not only by the Foundation, an organization he supported and fought for passionately, but by his many colleagues, friends, loved ones, and family. We grieve not only for him, but for the immense loss suffered by Alex’s family and his partner — and our friend — JR Gower.

Alex’s family has bestowed a great blessing on the DAYL Foundation in the midst of this great pain. The Bolton family has asked that the DAYL Foundation accept donations from family and friends in his memory.

The Foundation is honored to receive the Bolton family’s generosity. Alex believed deeply in the Foundation’s mission to improve the lives of young lawyers, law students in need of scholarships, and our community. Alex’s intent and desire to support the DAYL Foundation’s mission was clear and consistent. He had a servant’s heart and the Foundation is fortunate to have had his support during his short but fruitful life.

Donations in Alex’s memory can be made here.
