Message from Ancil G. Ramey, PresidentOn behalf of the West Virginia Bar Foundation and its Board of Directors, we welcome you to our website. The Bar Foundation, the philanthropic organization for the legal profession and justice system in West Virginia, has as its primary mission to make grants to organizations that provide legal services to our state’s citizens and that improve the administration of justice. Our diverse Board of Directors also selects the Bar Foundation Fellows, who are outstanding lawyers and members of the judiciary and sponsors the very successful fundraiser, “Lunch and Laughs with a Legal Legend” and the Lawyer Leadership Institute for newer lawyers. As an IRS Section 501(c)(3) approved charitable entity, the Board accepts tax deductible donations to its Justice Fund and lifetime ($500) memberships as well as conducts an annual independent audit, which is placed on this website along with the IRS Form 990.
