The WV Bar Foundation and its fifteen member Board of Directors expresses a big THANK YOU to the numerous outstanding judges and lawyers who made generous donations to the Bar Foundation’s Justice Fund, which makes grants to non-profit organizations to improve the administration of justice and the provision of legal services to West Virginia’s men, women and children.
With these end of the year tax deductible contributions, the Justice Fund has grown to $720,900, as of today.
The Board’s goal is to attain $1 million in the Justice Fund, which will enable Bar Foundation grants to double in size and continue to have a positive impact on the needs of our state’s citizens.
If you wish to contribute to the Justice Fund, your donation can be made by check to the Justice Fund (WV Bar Foundation, P.O. Box 4845, Charleston, WV 25364) or use your credit/debit card through the simple PayPal donation process on the Bar Foundation’s website—-wvbarfound.org
