Advancing the Human & Civil Rights of People with Disabilities in Illinois


Cy Pres & Other Court Awards

If you are a judge or an attorney, you can designate Equip for Equality as the recipient of a Cy Pres Award.

  • Cy Pres, meaning “next best use,” allows for the reallocation of court awards for a purpose as near as possible to the interests of a class or intended use of an estate or trust.
  • Equip for Equality will use Cy Pres awards as the law intends – to provide equal access to justice for low-income people in Illinois, including people with disabilities.
  • Download our Cy Pres Awards brochure (PDF) for more information about why Equip for Equality is an ideal recipient.
