What We Fund

"Nationalities Service Center - Food Bank Event" by the Philadelphia Bar Foundation's nonprofit partner, Nationalities Services Center

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.

Grantmaking by the Bar Foundation is a fundamental part of our mission. Our vision is a Philadelphia community in which everyone has equal access to justice.

Nearly 40 nonprofit legal aid organizations receive annual grants and other support from the Bar Foundation, representing the full range of vital services for people in need.
