Philadelphia Bar Foundation
Promoting Equal Access To Justice Since 1964
Our grants and other support for nearly 40 legal aid nonprofits promote access to justice and remove barriers for people facing poverty, abuse, and discrimination.
We strengthen the legal aid and pro bono systems and raise public support through unrestricted grants, training programs, technical assistance, fellowships, and awards. The Bar Foundation awards “unrestricted” grants. Unlike most grant programs from other sources, our grants can be used to support pressing needs and emerging issues without forced constraints.
The Bar Foundation is the embodiment of the Philadelphia community’s commitment to the fundamental principle of equal access to justice for all. We engage thousands of attorneys, law firms, corporate legal departments, vendors, and other businesses as donors and event sponsors and in multi-year giving programs.
