Conundrum Capital LLC Announces Challenge Grant for Legal Aid Service of Broward County
Challenge Grant will be for the Dependency Project, providing attorney services for children in the foster care system.
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – (December 26, 2011) -- Jordan D. Serlin, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Conundrum Capital LLC and Charles Gregoire de Rothschild, Chairman of Conundrum Capital LLC have announced a challenge grant to benefit Legal Aid Service of Broward County’s (LAS) Dependency Project for 2011. Conundrum will extend the challenge grant per annum through 2014.
Mr. Serlin stated, "The goal of the challenge grant is to encourage new donors to support the Dependency Project of LAS. As LAS faces funding reductions of 1.2 million dollars in 2012, the Dependency Project has been reduced to one part-time attorney. In Broward County approximately 2,400 children/youth are in state care with only 350 of them (8.4%) being provided an attorney in 2010. Without an attorney, the child has no voice in the court system. Conundrum believes that it is the right of every child to have representation in the court and encourages donors to match this challenge grant.”
“This challenge grant will provide for LAS to have a full-time attorney in the Dependency Project,” stated LAS’s Executive Director, Anthony Karrat. “We thank Conundrum Capital for recognizing the needs of the children in Broward County and stepping forward to lead this endeavor.”
