On 27 January, Rask signed a formal agreement confirming that it will advised the Estonian National Culture Foundation on a pro bono basis to help it achieve its goals. Rask will help the Estonian National Culture Foundation with various contracts and other matters including sub-funds, scholarships, and tax law.
Linda Piik, board member of the Estonian National Culture Foundation, explained that RASK’s assistance will help the Foundation to organize its work better. ”Like anyone else, we encounter problems in our daily work and need legal expertise to solve them. As the Foundation’s team is small, the opportunity to seek professional advice on legal issues is of great help. The pro bono agreement with Rask Attorneys-at-Law provides us a sense of security and allows us to fully focus on the Foundation’s main operations.”
According to Rask, the Estonian National Culture Foundation, "aims to support Estonian national culture through the purposeful accumulation and distribution of financial means." The Foundation has operated since 1991, and distributes scholarships and grants to individuals to promote academic, research, creative, and sports activities. The Foundation also supports organizations in implementing cultural projects.
