Announcing The Bert Rosenthal Memorial Award Fund
Posted August 12, 2020 in Membership
On August 5, 2020, during the 21st week of the Coronavirus Pandemic, the Bert Rosenthal Memorial Award Committee, whose members include past award recipients, the current president, and active past presidents, established the Bert Rosenthal Memorial Award Fund. This Fund shall be used to aid CALSPro during challenging financial times, in which funds are needed to support the general operations of the association.
Contributions shall be made by Rosenthal Committee members directly to CALSPro, and contributions shall also be welcomed by non-Rosenthal Committee members. Bert Rosenthal was a Founding Member of this association and one of the most respected. Bert had a clear understanding of the role the legal professional plays in our justice system. He encouraged the involvement of all, mentoring many younger members. Bert had both the character and the strength to challenge everyone to work for the common good of our profession. Bert exemplified everything for which this award stands.
As a result of CALSPro’s declining financial status, this fund was established to help keep the association operating, especially during the pandemic. The idea originated by Steve Janney (Rosenthal Recipient 2011) who has obtained a very generous commitment to initially fund the Bert Rosenthal Memorial Award Fund with matching funds, up to $10,000.00, of the total amount of donations made to the Fund on or before September 1, 2020. This means that your donation will be doubled, for example, if you donate $100.00, the value of your donation will be $200.00 due to the matching funds. Mr. Janney believes, “This will be a good way for donors to acknowledge the educational, social, and financial benefits of Bert’s legacy.”
We invite you to support this important fund by making a contribution. Please complete THIS FORM and return it to Rosenthal Committee Chair, Jenny Blevins, at email@example.com. On behalf of the Rosenthal Committee, thank you for your generous support!
