We are Philadelphia’s philanthropic hub for legal aid, engaging the legal community and embodying their commitment to access to justice for all.
A Philadelphia community in which everyone has equal access to justice.
Through programs, grants, and partnerships, the Philadelphia Bar Foundation removes barriers to justice, engages the community in support of civil legal aid, and builds system-wide capacity in order to strengthen the provision of quality legal services and to ensure that all individuals understand their rights to equal justice under law.
We are one of the leading Bar Foundations in the nation.
Philadelphia is the original home of the legal aid movement.
