Fellows of the DAYL Foundation

DAYL Foundation Fellows (as of November 4, 2016)

The Fellows of the DAYL Foundation are a group of distinguished attorneys and judges who have been recognized by their peers for professional distinction and service to the community and to the Bar. The Fellows program was created in 2002 as a way for the DAYL Foundation to be able to help an even greater segment of our community. Fellows contribute to the DAYL Foundation with either a contribution of $500 over the course of one year or $750 over the course of five years. Once a Fellow has fulfilled their pledge commitment, they become a Life Fellow. Life Fellows have the opportunity to become Sustaining Life Fellows by contributing at least $100 annually, with no commitment to re-contribute each year. Founding Fellows are those individuals who became Fellows in 2002, the founding year of the DAYL Foundation Fellows program.

Nomination process:

Each year, current Fellows are invited to nominate one or more persons to become a Fellow of the DAYL Foundation. Once all nominations are received, the Fellows Nominating Committee reviews the list of nominees and makes a recommendation to the DAYL Foundation Board of Trustees to approve individuals for official nomination. Once the DAYL Foundation Board of Trustees approves the final list of nominees, prospective Fellows are extended an invitation to become a Fellow of the DAYL Foundation.

Fellows Categories:

The Fellows are designated by level. Founding Fellows include the initial group of 79 people who became a Fellow in 2002. Life Fellows, including Life Founding Fellows, include people who have fulfilled their pledge payments to the DAYL Foundation.  Sustaining Fellows include people who have fulfilled their pledge payment to the DAYL Foundation but who have committed to continuing to support the DAYL Foundation with an extra donation for the calendar year. Fellows include those individuals who continue to make their pledge payments to the DAYL Foundation.
