YOUR IMPORTANT ASSISTANCE
As a member of the judiciary or the legal profession here in West Virginia, you support the Bar Foundation’s mission to improve the administration of justice by your contributions, membership dues, Fellows payments, sponsorships and fees. With your important assistance, the Bar Foundation makes grants to law related charitable organizations—more than $230,000 since the first grant in 2004 with more than $200,000 in just the past 6 years.
A recent grant was made to the Monongalia County Child Advocacy Center to provide forensic interviews in legal cases involving child abuse and neglect. Over the years, your help in supporting Bar Foundation grants has enabled hundreds of abused and neglected children in our state to participate in private secure interviews in these high priority matters.

Your assistance is having a positive impact on the very serious problem of child abuse and neglect, as well as enhancing the provision of legal services to WV’s men, women and children during their time of need.
