The Bar Foundation’s mission is to improve the administration of justice and the provision of legal services for the state’s citizens. The primary focus is providing grants to worthwhile charitable organizations to meet that mission.
Bar Foundation grants have a positive impact on justice initiatives, such as child abuse and neglect prevention advocacy, health care directives, law student scholarships and legal education activities in the court system.
The Bar Foundation’s Board of Directors initiated the Justice Fund to generate up to $1 million in order to have a stable source of continuing money for these grants. Close to two thirds of the goal has already been reached through donations and commitments by judges, lawyers and law related organizations.
The Board expresses its sincere appreciation to attorney David Jividen (Wheeling), a Bar Foundation Fellow, who recently made his tax deductible donation to support the Justice Fund.
The Board began the Justice Fund in late 2014 by depositing the funds received from the sale of its two buildings located in Charleston. Since then, six entities have made generous donations—Bailey and Glasser, Brickstreet Insurance, Jackson Kelly, Interstate Gas and Supply, Steptoe and Johnson, and White Law Offices.
In addition, more than twenty Bar Foundation Fellows have pledged $500 each to the Justice Fund and all fifteen Board members have made the same $500 commitment.
