Law Firm and Business Support

Thank you for partnering with the Philadelphia Bar Foundation to demonstrate, in highly effective and visible ways, the generous support of your firm or business for access to justice.

We invite your partnership through the following philanthropic programs and events:

Raising the Bar

The hallmark institutional giving campaign of the Philadelphia legal community, through which law firms and corporate legal departments pledge an annual amount per attorney to support legal aid.

Access to Justice Benefit

The traditional annual event where Philadelphia’s legal leaders come together to salute legal aid and pro bono excellence.

Golf & Tennis Classic

The premier golf and tennis outing for the entire legal community, supporting access to justice for all.

Philly Jeans for Justice

The only city-wide charity “dress down” day for law firms, corporate legal departments, and law-related businesses.


We are Philadelphia’s philanthropic hub for access to justice, engaging the legal community and embodying their commitment to this core principle. The Bar Foundation is the only foundation in Philadelphia solely dedicated to supporting our city's legal aid network.

As an independently operated sister organization to the Philadelphia Bar Association, the Foundation allows the legal community to fulfill its professional responsibility to use its resources and civic influence to ensure equal access to our system of justice for those in need.

The Bar Foundation provides an exceptional platform for communicating the civic values of your firm or business. Our philanthropic programs and event sponsorships allow us to salute and recognize your good corporate citizenship through multiple communications channels – targeted email; website; social media; publications; event promotions; and much more.

By working together, we can close the access to justice gap in our community.
