Tomorrow is Giving Tuesday! Keep the WV Bar Foundation in mind when gifting to your favorite charities this holiday season. The WV Bar Foundation is a qualified 501(c)(3) charitable organization, and your contribution may be tax-deductible.

We provide grants to organizations around the state to improve the administration of justice. The most recent grants include $5,000 to Child Protect of Mercer County to fund its digital evidence management software, $5,000 to Davis Stuart to create a debate team for its youths, and $3,500 to Public Defender Services to create and distribute an informational brochure.

Our three signature events during the year include the WV Bar Foundation Fellows Dinner, Lawyer Leadership Institute, and Lunch & Laughs with a Legal Legend.

The West Virginia Bar Foundation is proud to support the WV Supreme Court of Appeals in funding the design and construction of a new Judicial Learning Center. This Judicial Learning Center is an innovative and interactive environment for school-aged children and other visitors to learn about the rule of law and the role of the judiciary as an independent branch of state government.

Please join us at the Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting on Thursday, December 7, 2023 at 10:00 a.m. at the West Virginia State Capitol, Supreme Court of Appeals Courtroom, East Wing, 3rd Floor.
