Our Donors and Supporters

The Bar Foundation is the only foundation in Philadelphia solely dedicated to supporting the full scope of our city's legal services community. Your support has allowed the Bar Foundation to provide over $3 million in grants, fellowships, awards, and other programs in just the last five years to nearly 40 nonprofit legal aid organizations and the pro bono community.

By supporting the work of the Bar Foundation, the legal community fulfills its professional responsibility to ensure equal access to justice for all and helps to strengthen public trust in the legal profession.
