Columbus Bar Foundation Mission
Access to justice is our business
Our mission is to strive to increase access to justice, improve the administration of justice and promote excellence in legal education through grants and scholarships.
The Columbus Bar Foundation, in its relatively short history, has made over $4 million in grants. It is a 501c(3) organization and is classified as a 509(a)(1) and 170(b)(1)(A)(vi) public charity that, in partnership with Columbus Bar Association, is committed to supporting:
- Legal services for indigent clients through grants to the Legal Aid Society, Community Mediation Services, Franklin County Municipal Court Self Help Center Resource Center and more
- Professionalism within the legal community through sophisticated CLE in partnership with the CBA
- Lawyers in need due to serious illness or tragic circumstances
Please consider supporting your Columbus Bar Foundation. Your gift will help us continue to do important community work on behalf of central Ohio lawyers and judges.
