Promoting Equal Access To Justice Since 1964

We are Philadelphia's philanthropic hub for legal aid, engaging the legal community and embodying their commitment to access to justice for all.

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.

The Philadelphia Bar Foundation was founded in 1964 as a division of the Bar Association. Since 1964, the Bar Foundation has operated as an independent, charitable 501(c)(3) organization. We are the only foundation in Philadelphia solely dedicated to supporting our city's legal services community, awarding over $3 million in grants and other assistance in the last five years. Nearly 40 non-profit legal aid organizations receive annual grants and other support from the Bar Foundation, representing the full range of vital services for people in need.
